The sequence of tournaments and travel weigh on organizations. Indeed, since the start of the South American tour, there have already been nearly a dozen withdrawals or withdrawals due to injuries.

If the players were very happy to finally see the war between WPT and Premier Padel end to have to play a few fewer tournaments, the current pace, certainly less sustained than that of last year, still remains quite traumatic.

Since the start of the tournament in Chile, we have already suffered three injuries: Tamara Icardo and Salva Oria in the main draw, as well as Lucia Perez in previas.

For previas players who also participate in the FIP Tour and who therefore spend their time traveling, it is these very numerous trips which certainly begin to take their toll at some point.
