We cannot hide it, this last tournament of World Padel Tour in Mexico gives us a number of surprises in the feminine picture. Obviously, it doesn't matter which team wins at the end of this tournament week, there will be a little surprise at the end of the road.

Already, the big favorites of the tournament, Paula Josemaria and Ariana Sanchez had to withdraw before the start of the competition. A chance for the other teams dreaming of going for the title in Mexico.

The fall of the seeds

But there, if the top seeds had a shot to play, many of them are already eliminated before the start of the quarter-finals. First of all, these are Alayeto binoculars, seeded number 7, who surrendered against Jimena Velasco and Noa Canovas.

Well, one seed less, it’s happening. But Thursday was a real massacre in the women's table. And to say, the big favorites of the tournament, Marta Ortega and Gemma Triay, took the exit door. A first for these two players who had always reached the semi-finals together, all circuits combined.

And the decline didn't stop there. A few hours later, it was the turn of Patty Llaguno and Lucia Sainz hit a wall, the pair Bea Caldera / Ana Catarina Nogueira. A defeat in two sets which therefore expels the two experienced players out of the picture in Mexico.

And now, which favorites?

4 seeds out of 8 offside in Mexico, but who is left then? Well, with the defeat of Triay/Ortega and the withdrawal of Josemaria/Sanchez, the team best placed to claim the title is none other than Brea/González.


The two friends, in addition to being in good momentum after their title in Malmö, are the highest ranked in the last remaining teams. THE superpibas therefore clearly have a shot to play in this last tournament of the World Padel Tour.

Yes but be wary because Alejandra Salazar and Sofia Araujo are still in the running. And the Spanish-Portuguese pair showed very good things in Sweden, reaching the final. If both players continue this momentum, they may be able to annoy the “new favorites".

Also watch out for other teams who will want to push behind. We think of the pair Icardo/Riera, the surprising Osoro and Castello or even Jensen/Virseda. The latter is clearly doing the right thing in this tournament by offering herself a ticket for the Master Final.

So, which female pair will win on Sunday? We are waiting for your predictions!

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.
