Alejandro Galan and Juan Lebron went out of a complicated match last night, at the Palau Sant Jordi in Barcelona, facing Coki Nieto and Jon Sanz. It’s simple, the double title holders did not go far from the exit door.
In an electric atmosphere in the capital of Catalonia, where Ale Galan and Juan Lebron were whistled during the entire meeting, El Galantico had some problems with arbitration decisions.
A little context: at the start of the third set, while the former world number 1s are in a very negative spiral, Ale Galan against a smash from Jon Sanz. The latter calls on video refereeing, believing that his former partner is touching the net. The referee agrees with him, Galan hit the net with his t-shirt.
A few games later, again. On a smash from his opponents, Galan succeeds in a tightrope counter. Once again, video refereeing takes away the point: he hit the net with the t-shirt.
If the Madrid native had managed to keep calm the first time, a hint of exasperation appears. Penalized twice because of his t-shirt, Ale Galan gives us a whole new style. Jersey tucked into the shorts, he should no longer be disturbed by his top on the counterattacks.
Of course, the gesture is only there for form, since he gets dressed properly the next second. However, one can easily understand the annoyance of the former world number 1.
Fortunately, these two points will not have been detrimental since Galan and LeBron went for victory, not without being scared in the process.
We will meet the Spaniards again today, facing Stupaczuk and Di Nenno who didn't do well against Gonzalez and Garrido. In this match that looks like revenge, Will Galan arrive with a tighter t-shirt to avoid touching the net? Answer in the evening, during the last match of the day!
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.
