Maxi Sanchez and Sanyo Gutierrez will be partners in 2024. This is a third association between the two Argentinians in almost 3 years. So they’re already an old couple… Already in 2013, Padel Magazine headlined on the promising Sanchez/Sanyo pair.

If for Sanyo, there is nothing surprising since we knew it on the transfer market after the announcement of Paquito Navarro with Juan LeBron and his poor start to the season. It's more surprising for Maxi Sanchez and Gonzalo Rubio who we saw continuing together in 2024.

Indeed, even if Maxi and Rubio did not follow up the good performances with two 8th finals either, they did not give themselves the time to see how far this pair could go.

The information comes from an often well-informed page, that of Padel y Cervecitas.

The temptation to play again with his ex-partner Sanyo was perhaps too great.

One reason for this association: the points.

Indeed, Maxi Sanchez lost 2 places in the ranking, ranking him in 21st place in the world. Rubio is 28th. Sanyo, meanwhile, is the 11th player in the world. This is necessarily to be taken into consideration, when you want to avoid seeded players, or even hope for a place in the Master Final at the end of the year.

For the moment, if the two players continue their momentum in 2024, it will be very complicated to be part of the 8 best pairs in the world at the end of the season. But for Max Sanchez, it is certainly a good operation from an accounting point of view.

Regaining confidence for Sanyo at all costs

In 2018, Sanyo / Sanchez, it was already backi… Well, we will therefore have the right to a 3rd marriage between these two players.

Furthermore, to regain confidence, there is nothing better. The two Argentinians know each other very well. They will be operational quickly. Especially since they had managed to play very well together in the past. We remember, for example, their victory in the final of the Master of Marbella in March 2019 against… Lebron / Paquito, the pair who will end the year in first place in the world.

The year 2024, which has barely begun, is already very surprising. And it's not finished !
