Perfect Sánchez and Josemaría dispatch Brea and Icardo, crowned women's Malmö Padel Open champions

Ariana Sánchez and Paula Josemaría have won their fifth tournament of the season as they dispatched Delfina Brea and Tamara Icardo to be named the women's Malmö Padel Open champions.

Both pairs came into the final without dropping a single set in the previous three rounds. Brea and Icardo also broke the historic 23-game, five tournament winning streak of Gemma Triay and Alejandra Salazar on Saturday.

This will have been music to the ears of Spanish duo Sánchez and Josemaría, whose four finals losses in 2021 were all against Triay and Salazar.

Deserving women's Malmö Padel Open champions

The rankings' number twos started off brightly, breaking in the very first set. Defending their advantage with determination, Brea and Icardo struggled to get on level terms. Barring a few flashes of brilliance, they were broken again and beaten comprehensively by 6-2 in the first set.

The second set saw more of the same dynamic. Sánchez and Josemaría were unmatched on the 20 by 10, breaking service two times in a row at 1-1.

Brea and Icardo were impressive at the end, surviving a match point at 5-1. The next game, they managed to overcome another match point and broke serve.

On their own serve at 5-3, however, they were sprung by their all-Spanish opposition. They were counter-broken, and the set ended 6-3.

Sánchez and Josemaría have won the Areco Malmö Padel Open without dropping a set. With only the Madrid Master Final left on the calendar, it is the perfect way for them to carry momentum into the most prestigious tournament of the year.

While number one status is out of reach, it would be a very nice way to end a promising campaign.

Ariana Sánchez and Paula Josemaría are your women's Malmö Padel Open champions!
