Claudia Fernandez wins the first professional title of her career in Chile. After failing three times in the final, the Madrilenian became, at 18 years, 3 months and 4 days, the youngest player to win a tournament of this level, erasing Bea Gonzalez (18 years, 7 months and 27 days) from the books. records.

The opportunity was too good not to seize! In a tournament marked by numerous surprises among the ladies, Claudia Fernandez and Gemma Triay (TS3) found veterans Patty Llaguno and Lucia Sainz (TS8) in the final, in a meeting that seemed unbalanced on paper. Indeed, in five confrontations, Patty and Lucia had only been able to take one set from Gemma and Claudia…

And the start of the match clearly showed the superiority of the 3 seed, who went it alone at the front and took control with a scathing 6/1.

But behind, the veterans showed that they had not both been world number 1 for nothing. Throwing all their strength into the battle, they managed to lead 4 games to 2 in the second set and finally seemed to be able to dream in this final. But behind, the pair 100% Bullpadel moved up a gear, stringing together 4 consecutive games to win their first title.

With this coronation, Gemma, who played her fourth final of the year with Claudia, confirms that she was right to bet on this young player. Satisfied to return to success, the Minorcan did not shy away from her pleasure in an end-of-match interview: “Claudia and I felt a very strong connection from day one. The results came quickly and Claudia handled the nerves and pressure admirably. For my part, I have to learn to appreciate winning a tournament. When you are used to winning, you don't give it more importance, but when you don't win, you realize how difficult it is!”

The Spanish will try to confirm in Bordeaux, where following the absence of Josemaria / Sanchez, they will form the 2nd seed. Enough to almost guarantee a place in the final?
