The first tournament of the season has just ended with a sublime tournament, and titanic matches. The Argentine pair Fernando Belasteguin et Sanyo Guttiérrez won the Madrid Open 2021 of the WPT.
Sanyo was elected MVP of the final, yet another player seemed to have the public's approval to receive this trophy ...
No, it is not the other winner of this final, Fernando Belasteguin, that it is.
Sanyo still so strong
For many, if there had been a tournament MVP trophy, it would have been Alex Ruiz. Indeed, the Andalusian partnership with Stupa seems to work wonderfully. They were clearly not expected at such a level.
In the final, Sanyo was not unworthy, far from it. He has been true to what he always does: consistency, defense, precision and efficiency. The Argentinian delivered a solid game and above all he leaves with the victory. He was present in the key moments, had a very good tournament, to experience. The pair with King Bela has been incredibly effective.
Next time for Alex Ruiz?
Alex Ruiz meanwhile he had a big match, like his tournament, but he leaves with defeat… Very aggressive throughout the competition, he won over the fans who certainly felt he deserved the MVP for all of his work this week in Madrid. 19th in the standings, he showed that he was capable of competing with the very best, which won him favor with the public, especially since he was the only Spaniard in this final.
Le World Padel Tour used to reward the winners so the decision seems logical. For Ruiz, this is certainly a postponement. In search of his first title on an Open or Master of the WPT, the Andalusian should continue to be talked about this season !
