From October 6 to 13, Menorca will become the world capital of padel with the dispute of the Estrella Damm Menorca Open 2019. The thirteenth appointment of the World Padel Tour calendar, will make Mahón the meeting point of the best players on the planet. A new opportunity to see the fight between the experts of the circuit in action. A tournament that comes loaded with incentives, reasons for no one to miss this meeting with the best padel in the world. Next, we give you five arguments so that no one is missing from this party of the best padel in the world.
Three candidates for the throne
For the first time in the history of professional padel, 3 couples reach the final strecht of the season with options to finish at the top of the ranking. Sanyo Gutiérrez and Maxi Sánchez will arrive in Menorca holding that privileged position. The Argentines will try to resist the push of Pablo Lima and Ale Galán, who already add together 3 tournaments, as well as Paquito Navarro and Juan Lebrón whose challenge is to be crowned again in a great event. A narrow margin of points separates these three pairs of aspirants to reign in the men's professional padel. Who will be better off the date in Menorca? Which couple comes best to the date? Who will better withstand the pressure? The answer, in Mahón.
Important appointment for "Las Martas"
Marta Marrero and Marta Ortega managed to get their sixth title in Cascais. Her income with respect to Ale Salazar and Ari Sánchez exceeds 1,000 points for the first time. A distance that becomes more important if we consider that in Mahón, will be the second to last appointment of the course for the women's team before the Final Master. A new triumph of Marrero and Ortega, would serve to take a giant step in their goal of reigning this 2019 course in the world women's padel, will they get it? Will Ale and Ari react ?
The visit to the capital of Menorca will undoubtedly be a more than special moment for one of the most talented players in the world. We refer to Gemma Triay. The player, will seek to recover her best version before their countrymen in their homeland. In 2018, together with Lucía Sainz, Triay managed to win 4 tournaments and check the number one women's padel. An extra motivation, returning home to recover the competitive tone that makes her one of the most decisive player of the World Padel Tour circuit.
Fight for the Master Final
This is one of the great challenges of each campaign for players. Finishing the course between the 16 first classified in the individual ranking is an achievement that gives access to the most special event of all, the Estrella Damm Master Final. But to get that passport to the "tournament of the tournaments" you have to sweat. In the absence of the last third of the campaign, these places are more expensive than ever and everything can happen. A good result in Menorca would open the doors of the Master to players who know how to take advantage of their options. So Menorca, will be a key event for players.
Premier in Menorca
The Estrella Damm Menorca Open 2019, will be the first visit to Mahón of the World Padel Tour. An expected landing by all Minorcan fans and the entire Balearic community. The tournament will be the return to that community since in 2016 Mallorca accommodated the last Open event held there. A reunion that will be synonymous with emotion and spectacle. 3 years later, the best padel on the planet returns to the Balearic Islands.
Don't forget! See you in the Estrella Damm Menorca Open 2019!
