This evening in Mexico will be held the last face to face between Arturo Coello et Agustin Tapia, against Juan lebron et Alejandro galan. One last match between these two pairs who thrilled us throughout the 2023 season. A rivalry that will remain engraved in memories...

Since the start of last season, Coello/Tapia and Lebron/Galan have faced each other 8 times. And in these 8 meetings, perfect equality between the two pairs: 4-4.

As demonstrated by the statistics of Padelmarket, the meetings between these two teams have always been very balanced. As many sets won (10 everywhere), only 3 games difference in eight matches (102 for Coello/Tapia and 105 for Lebron/Galan) and 3 tie-breaks won by both sides. Suffice to say that these two teams have always been neck and neck.

However, what is interesting to note is that out of the 8 confrontations between the two teams, the last 4 matches were all won by Juan Lebron and Alejandro Galan. The latest was at the start of the season, at Riyadh P1, with a victory in three sets: 7/6 4/6 4/6.

What deserves to be highlighted last is the efficiency of each team. Because, if Lebron and Galan won more titles and reached more finals, they were much less effective than Arturo Coello and Agustin Tapia. Indeed, the Spanish-Argentinian pair won, 16 finals out of the 20 played, i.e. a ratio of 80%. For Juan and Ale, it's about 33 titles for 47 attempts, which equals 70% of success.

Obviously, the comparison would almost seem a bit easy because Juan LeBron and Alejandro Galan played 176 more matches together as Coello/Tapia. Over 300 games and four seasons, it is hard to maintain a constant level.

Now all that remains is to see which team will gain the upper hand over the other. This is much more than just a final. A match to decide between them. A match for history...

It was his brother who one day told him to accompany him on a track. padel, since then, Gwenaëlle has never left the court. Except when it comes to going to watch the broadcast of Padel Magazine, World Padel Tour… or Premier Padel…or the French Championships. In short, she is a fan of this sport.
