Snowball effect: Eli Amatriaín and Nuria Rodríguez among many new couples formed

After the announced rupture between former number ones Carolina Navarro and Eli Amatriaín, there has been a host of splits and new couples on the women's side of World Padel Tour.

Navarro announced she will be playing with teenager Claudia Jensen for the rest of 2022.

Claudia Jensen and Carolina Navarro announce exciting new partnership

Eli Amatriaín/Nuria Rodríguez

After splitting with Navarro, Amatriaín has sought refuge in the hard-hitting Spaniard Nuria Rodríguez.

Amatriaín started the season with quarter-final appearances in Miami and Reus, but never returned to the same heights.

Rodríguez made one quarter-final in 2022, when she stood in for the injured Patricia Llaguno and played with Virginia Riera.

The pair will be fighting for the rest of the season to be involved in the Estrella Damm Master Final.

Carla Mesa/Lorena Rufo

As Claudia Jensen is now with Carolina Navarro, Carla Mesa had to look for a new partner.

She found another one of the brightest young talents in women's padel, Lorena Rufo. Having turned 19 earlier this month, she is already a regular in rounds of 16.

Mesa, the more veteran player of the two, reached three quarter-finals with Jensen in the current campaign as well as the semi-finals in Vienna, the first time either of them had ever been among the final four of an Open.

Rufo and Mesa will debut together at the Tau Ceramica Calanda Challenger this week.

Mari C. Villalba/Carmen Goenaga

Another new pairing is the one of Mari Carmen Villalba and Carmen Goenaga.

Villalba and Goenaga too are a combination of experience, Villalba a player who has been around for a long time while 18-year-old Goenaga has all of her career ahead of her.

Goenaga and then team-mate Bea Caldera reached the quarter-finals in Reus, showing their incredible potential.

Villalba did the same with Ana Catarina Nogueira in Brussels, meaning both players know what it is like to compete with the very best.

Carolina Orsi/Xènia Clascà  < - > Anna Cortiles/Sandra Bellver

A partner swap has taken place as Carolina Orsi has teamed up with Xènia Clascà, while the latter's ex-team-mate Anna Cortiles will be playing with Orsi's former counterpart Sandra Bellver.

Cortiles and Bellver know each other well, having competed in local leagues in Catalonia alongside one another.

Orsi, Italy's highest-ranked player, will hope to make her first quarter-final of the season with Clascà.
