There are players and players. And then there is Cristian Gutiérrez (Mar del Plata, 1978), a player capable of turn a stadium upside down with a simple twist of the wrist. This week he turned 42 and continues offering wonders to the fans of the padel planet in every touch, in every movement and in every decision. It's flesh and blood, but on the track someone might mistake it for a cartoon capable of creating impossible things in 20x10. Welcome to the Cristian Gutiérrez universe.
