The difficult conditions in Saudi Arabia (wind and sun) mean that players have a little difficulty sometimes, as we saw with many surprises and here with Gemma Triay who takes the ball on the head during a smash attempt.

Le padel requires us to demonstrate precision and agility and sometimes offers us unexpected moments. During the Premier Padel Riyadh P1, a rather funny scene took place. As proof, it was relayed everywhere on social networks. Indeed, Gemma Triay found herself in a situation that was unusual to say the least, reminding some of the exploits of a certain Zinedine Zidane, also a fan of padel, but in a very different context.

Under the blazing sun and capricious wind of Saudi Arabia, Triay prepared to deliver a big smash, her signature shot you could say. However this time, the elements decided otherwise. Instead of hitting the ball with her racket, Gemma met it with her head. A moment as comical as it was unexpected, which did not fail to arouse reactions and comments.

If the top seed finally came out during this meeting against Sofia Saiz and Melania Merino, she did not really succeed in her Saudi tournament, with a quarter elimination...
