5 reasons why you cannot miss the Cervezas Victoria Cordoba Open 2021

The Cervezas Victoria Cordoba Open 2021 is around the corner, with the final phase of the tournament kicking off on the 20th of October.

Just in case you were not excited enough for it already, here are five reasons you cannot miss out on the action for the 15th tournament of the season!

The number ones' coronation?

After winning the Estrella Damm Menorca Open 2021 two weeks ago, Juan Lebrón and Ale Galán arrive in Cordoba with all the momentum on their side and two challenges on the horizon.

Firstly, they can lift their third consecutive trophy after winning in Menorca and Lugo. It would be their first time doing so in their second season as a pairing.

Secondly, and more importantly, they can mathematically confirm their status as the number one pair in the world for the second year running. In the rankings, they lead Paquito Navarro by 4.400 points, with 4.700 points still up for grabs.

While it is virtually impossible for them to be overtaken, if they can manage to reach the semi-final, they can set their number one status in print.

A tournament win or final appearance would do this no matter how Navarro and Martín Di Nenno do. If the number two pair cannot win the Cordoba Open, Galán and Lebrón end the year as the number ones again.

Chasing a world record

In the women's bracket, this season has been all about Ale Salazar and Gemma Triay. The number one pairing has now won four tournaments on the trot, winning 17 consecutive games as well.

This is the second-highest winning streak in World Padel Tour history, only beaten by The Atomic Twins Majo and Mapi Sánchez Alayeto's streak of 30 games.

Salazar and Triay will have to remain unbeaten for the majority of the season if they want to make the record their own. For a pairing that is still in its first year, it would be a remarkable achievement!

Road to the Master Final

With just four tournaments left in the 2021 calendar, the race to be among the top eight ranked pairs is heating up. In either bracket, only the top eight qualify for the coveted Master Final.

With 4.700 points still to be won in Cordoba, Sweden, Buenos Aires and Mexico, the coming weeks will be crucial to see who will and will not book their ticket for the Madrid Master Final 2021.

Comeback kids

The female Circuit will see the return of two of the biggest duo's for the Cordoba Open after doing without them several tournaments through injury.

Number two-ranked Ariana Sánchez and Paula Josemaría will return to action in Cordoba after the former has overcome her muscular injury.

Majo Sánchez Alayeto will reunite with her twin sister Mapi again after overcoming her injury, which ruled her out both in Lugo and in Menorca.

Return to Cordoba

The COVID-19 pandemic left us without a visit to Cordoba in 2020. The Pabellón Vistalegre will now host the best padel players in the world once more after two years of waiting.

A lot has changed since that last Cervezas Victoria Cordoba Open, both on the court and off it, and the local fans in the south of Spain will be rearing to go once more for 2021's edition.
