How the CDMX Open 2021 affected the World Padel Tour rankings

After another brilliant week of padel at the CDMX Open 2021, we take a look at how the World Padel Tour rankings were affected.

The final Open of the season, only the Estrella Damm Master Final remains now. The climax of the season, only the top 16 players on both sides of the rankings can participate.

As we explain below, when 16th place in the rankings is shared, there is a special ruling to determine who goes to the tournament.

World Padel Tour rankings changes

At the top, Paquito Navarro (11.675 points) and Martín Di Nenno (11.910) have missed the opportunity to become the number ones heading into the Master Final. A win in Mexico would have secured this for them, and they would only have to match Alejandro Galán and Juan Lebrón (both 12.535 points) at the Master Final to end 2021 on top. Now, only a win or a finals appearance will do, depending on Galán and Lebrón's performance.

After winning their second title of the year, Franco Stupaczuk (7.515 points) and Alejandro Ruiz (7.015 points) have consolidated their status as the number four pair in the rankings. While overtaking number threes Sanyo Gutiérrez and Agustín Tapia is not possible anymore, it is very unlikely they will drop back to fifth.

Juan Tello and Fede Chingotto are 800 points behind in The Race 2021, meaning they would have to win the Master Final and Stupa/Ruiz would have to be eliminated in the first round for them to regain the fourth spot.

Further down, Javi Rico and Momo González share 16th spot in the individual rankings. This means 12th-ranked Pablo Lima, whose partner Javi Ruiz ranks only 20th and therefore cannot compete in the Master Final, will get either Rico or González. As is WPT regulation, there will be a draw to see which of the two will partner Lima in Madrid next week.
