Many of you do not know what differences there are between the sleepy, dejada and cushioning door. If these three shots are similar, they are all different.

So what is a sleepy, a dejada and cushioned door ? We explain everything here so you can become experts on the subject.

La dejada

La dejada…it is quite simply a depreciation on padel.

In short, dejada is a move often used by players to break the rhythm during a point, generally to surprise the opponent. When touched to perfection, it can even make it possible to achieve a winning move.

Bea Gonzalez is also very talented in this matter…

Cushioned door

Amortization door is, as its name suggests, a damped.

So, what's the difference with dejada ? The cushioned door is none other than a dejada which ends its race outside the field. The effect is significant enough that the ball goes through the door. A master in the field? Arturo Coello.

The sleep

La sleepy – which means “marmot” in Spanish – is a move that you will only find in padel. It's about a cushioned shot made on an opposing smash who hit the back wall.

If the shot is well adjusted, the ball is expected to fall just behind the net, often with a retro effect. For the most successful shots, it even happens that the ball goes out of the field with a lateral spin or that the ball returns to its court thanks to a huge backspin.

This is the case in the following video, with the superb sleepy de Juan lebron.

Gwenaelle Souyri

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.
