The 2019 season of World Padel Tourcould not start better for Marta Marrero and Marta Ortega . The duo directed by Juan Alday managed to conquer the inaugural tournament of the course, the Cervezas Victoria Marbella Master 2019 and in addition to this success in its premiere, the couple obtained enough points to start the next appointment as the number one seed of the women's draw. With the 1,700 points that each has added, Marrero, who is third in the ranking, accumulates a total of 11,440 points for the 6,900 of Marta Ortega: a total of 18,340 points for the binomial. A figure that betters the 16,980 that accumulate the finalists in Marbella, Alejandra Salazar and Ariana Sánchez. On the other hand, Gemma Triay and Lucía Sainz will start in Logroño as the third favorite pair, with 7,775 points each. The fourth seed for the Logroño Open 2019 will be the one formed by Majo Sánchez Alayeto, who holds the number one solo in the ranking with 12,350 points and Delfi Brea, who after his first semifinals of Master as a professional, already occupies the 18th plaza adding a total of 2,085 points.
A dream start of the year that will allow the Canarian and the Madrilenian not to measure seed number 2 until a hypothetical final. As it is known, the first four seeded pairs in the women's draw are exempt from the first round of 32, starting their competition from the round of 16, both in Open and Master tournaments. It will be the first time in the career of Marta Ortega that a tournament begins with the status of favorite number one. A privilege thatMarta Marrero knows first-hand, but that she does not enjoy since the end of May 2017.
☺️ ¡Una emoción única!
