Cordoba Open presentation: WPT travels south as season nears conclusion

Tuesday saw the Cervezas Victoria Cordoba Open presentation take place ahead of the 15th tournament of the World Padel Tour season. After missing out last season because of the pandemic, the best padel in the world is now back in Cordoba.

The presentation took place at the Patio de la Calle San Basilio, a place dedicated to the region's culture and traditions. Local players Javier Garrido, a two-time Challengers winner in 2021, and Xisco Gil, were both present at the ceremony. With them was Cordoba's local sports governor D. Manuel Torrejimeno.

Number ones Ale Galán and Juan Lebrón will be looking for their third consecutive tournament win and to confirm their status as the 2021 number ones. However, the cream of the padel crop will all be participating as well, motivated as ever to knock off the most in-form pair at the moment.

In the female Circuit, nobody seems to be able to stop Ale Salazar and Gemma Triay. The Spanish tandem is on the second-longest winning streak in World Padel Tour history at 17 games.

However, the holders of the record Majo and Mapi Sánchez Alayeto are returning to action in Cordoba after missing tournaments. So are the number two pairing in the world, Ariana Sánchez and Paula Josemaría. Can either of them beat the seemingly unbeatable Salazar and Triay?

With the World Padel Tour nearing its season conclusion, there is a lot on the line in Cordoba. And for the first time, 100% crowd capacity! With the Cordoba Open presentation now in the books, roll on the tournament!
