The queens of Amsterdam are them: Paula Josemaria and Ariana Sanchez. The Spaniards went for the title against Delfi Brea and Bea Gonzalez. After 1 hour 35 minutes, they won 7/6 (5) 6/0.
There was a lot at stake in this match. On the one hand, Delfi Brea and Bea Gonzalez had to prove their return to the best level, after a particularly complicated month of September. On the other hand, Paula Josemaria and Ariana Sanchez could ensure they finished world number one at the end of the season.
The lucidity of Josemaria/Sanchez
Mediafixer superbibas broke very early in this meeting, helped by the numerous errors of Paula Josemaria at the net whose legs were very shaky. And then all of a sudden, everything goes wrong for the Spanish-Argentinian pair. At 2-1, 30-15, Brea and Gonzalez fade away. They concede eight points in a row, allowing the world number ones to take the advantage on the scoreboard: 3-2.
This match takes a very surprising turn. In the right diagonal, Paula Josemaria and Delfi Brea seem to be dragging themselves on the court and the number of fouls committed is high. Both teams are far from playing at their best, with surprising decisions in the points. Brea/Gonzalez and Sanchez/Josemaria find a parity score: 4-4.
We found a little intensity during the ninth game of this first round. THE superpibas offer themselves four break points on Paula Josemaria's service. This is what the latter needed to get into her game. She makes Delfi Brea make the mistakes who cannot get into it and makes the mistake.
However, the Spanish-Argentinian pair is the one that creates the most opportunities. They get 7 break points, but do not convert any of them. They even have to save two set points to get back to 6-6. Ultimately, it was the world number ones who took the first round, after being imperial in the crucial moments.
A victory worth a hundred
We take the same ones and start again in this second act. Especially for Delfi Brea who still can't get into her match. Completely out of control, she commits three faults in her first service game. Bea Gonzalez, who didn't have a lot of waste in her game until now, misses a smash and offers the first break to Josemaria and Sanchez. Head down, Delfi Brea returns to the bench and seems psychologically affected.
The world number ones are much more upbeat in this second round. However, Paula and Ari are not obliged to bring out their best padel in this meeting. They just have to play fair to win the points. They take off on the scoreboard, 3-0 in just ten minutes of play.
Nothing is going well for the superpibas completely underwater in this second set. They sink more and more in this part. Where Bea Gonzalez has until now managed to keep the rhythm and deliver a good level of padel, she too begins to make mistakes. 5-0, the score is severe.
After 25 minutes of play, Paula Josemaria and Ariana Sanchez inflict a 6/0 on Delfi Brea and Bea Gonzalez. The world number ones will therefore finish at the top of the rankings this season. The masters final last December seems a long way away.
This is the 14th title this season for Paula Josemaria and Ariana Sanchez and a 22nd consecutive victory.
With 27 titles to their credit, Paula and Ari get closer to the record held by the Alayeto twins (32). It will not be for this season, but as we already know, they will play together during the 2024 season.
The adventure continues for the world number ones, on the roof of the padel world.
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.
