There has been a lot of talk about it, several new pairs will make their debut at the Caja Magica in less than a week during the World Padel Tour Madrid Masters.
Lima's last against Lebron/Galan?
And by chance of the draw, two of them will end up in the first round. Indeed, Sanyo and Agustin Gutiérrez will reunite with the latter's former partner, José Rico, and his new teammate Jorge Ruiz. Can the family pair start with a victory?
We will also follow the debut of Momo Gonzalez and Javi Garrido, who will be opposed to another recent association, Garcia/Ramirez, who has already made a name for herself by notably taking a set from the almost invincible Coello and Tapia.
Among the most interesting clashes of the first round, we will notably follow an Augsburger/Libaak vs Del Castillo/Benitez which looks undecided. For their last tournament together, Edu Alonso and Juanlu Esbri, who want to finish in style, inherit the legends Lamperti and JM Diaz. Pablo Lima, who will retire at the end of the tournament, has a gala match with Agustin Silingo against Lebron and Galan. Will the elders be able to create the feat?
Tough for Collombon/Rufo
Very complicated draw for Alix Collombon and Lorena Rufo in Madrid. The Franco-Spanish pair, which comes out of a quarter-final at Roland Garros inherited from Gemma Triay and Martita Ortega. The Lyonnaise and her teammate are therefore forced to perform from the first round.
Not an easy draw but still more lenient for Léa Godallier and Eli Amatriain, who face Ana Catarina Nogueira and Bea Caldera, a pair beaten in the eighth of the Greenweez Paris Major by… Collombon/Rufo!
On paper, the most undecided match of the first round is the one between veterans: Alayeto/Alayeto vs Llaguno/Sainz!
A Frenchman in advance
In advance, we will carefully follow the results of Thomas Leygue and Ferran Insa, who begin their competition against Ivan Garcia (145) and Daniel De Castro (143). The Frenchman and his partner will clearly have a hand in this meeting, scheduled for Saturday at noon.
