A little less than a year ago, Agustín Tapia shared his biggest dream with the Spanish newspaper El Grafico: meeting the legend Lionel Messi.

Agustín, living in Barcelona, ​​has always been able to attest to the craze around the legend of FC Barcelona. "What Messi generates is crazy. As someone who lives in Barcelona, ​​I saw people during the World Cup who were going to Argentina. And only because of what he did at Barcelona and what he did with football.“, he told El Grafico.

Of course, the Mozart of padel also has a lot of respect for the football legend. “What can I tell you: we all admire him for who he is. Not only because of the way he plays, because we know he is undoubtedly the best in history, but also because he is calm, humble and shows you that he is also a human being ."

In conclusion of this interview, Agustín Tapia admitted that it was his dream to meet Leo Messi…

A year later, during the Pro Padel league, Agustín Tapia's dream came true…he was able to meet Leo Messi in Miami, where the number 10 now plays, at Inter Miami.

We can therefore say that the Messi of padel met the Messi of Football. Perhaps we will come across them on a track padel one day... who knows?
