The news had the effect of a bomb in the world of professional Padel: Juan Martin DIAZ and Fernando BELASTEGUIN will not play together next season. Soon speculations about their future partners were circulating and, from a purely personal point of view, I was hoping for a team composed of Juan Martin and Cristian Gutierrez, my 2 references on the circuit.

But it was not long to know who the lucky ones were. As announced in our August 19 2014 article, the WPT's 2 number also separates to give MIERES-DIAZ and BELASTEGUIN-LIMA.

One could then legitimately think that the competition could benefit from this double separation to get closer to the top of the ranking. It is not so since since this weekend, we know that the number pairs 4, 5 and 6 circuit also separate !!!

We will not see next season the following teams: Cristian Gutierrez - Matias DIAZ; Miguel LAMPERTI - Maxi GRABIEL and Paquito NAVARRO - Adrian GERMANI

The new pairs will be:

  • Cristian GUTIERREZ - Maxi GRABIEL,
  • Miguel LAMPERTI - Adrian GERMANI
  • Paquito NAVARRO - Matias DIAZ.

I would bet a few pieces on Cristian and Maxi for me for next year.

Now, it is also logical to think that the big winners of these changes will be Sanyo Gutierez and Maxi Sanchez, numbers 3 in the ranking, winners of 2013 masters who, despite an 2013-2014 season disturbed by injuries, have been announced for some time already like the future 1 numbers of the circuit!

The team of Padel Magazine can not wait to see all this !!! We hope you too!
