The biggest WPT ranking changes after the Areco Malmö Padel Open 2021

With the upsets and drama in Sweden, the Areco Malmö Padel Open has caused plenty of WPT ranking changes - here are the ones of note.

For the women's Circuit, it was the final Open of the season before the Madrid Master Final, which takes place from 15-19 December.

While there is already a mathematical number one in the women's Circuit, it is still up for grabs on the men's side of things.

Men's WPT ranking changes

Despite again losing in the semi-finals, Juan Lebrón and Alejandro Galán are still comfortably at the top of the men's rankings.

In hot pursuit are Francisco Paquito Navarro and Martín Di Nenno in third and fourth place respectively after reaching the Malmö Padel Open final, which they crucially did not win, leaving 400 points on the table. The gap between the number ones and Navarro is 2.150 points and 2.335 to Di Nenno with 3.300 points still available in 2021.

After an impressive win in Sweden, Agustín Tapia has solidified his fifth position, while his team-mate Daniel Sanyo Gutiérrez moves up three places to become the new number six, the biggest of WPT ranking changes.

Jorge Coki Nieto and Adrián Tito Allemandi, who surprisingly made the semi-finals, are now 19th and 24th with 2.606 and 2.203 points respectively.

Within the top 50, Brazilian Lucas Bergamini is the biggest gainer following his round of 16 appearance, moving up four places to become 46th.

Women's rankings

Heading into the Malmö Padel Open, Gemma Triay and Alejandra Salazar had already mathematically wrapped up number one status for 2021. After winning in Sweden, Ariana Sánchez and Paula Josemaría have cemented their status as the number two pair.

Their fifth tournament win of the year leaves them on 11.425 and 11.210 points respectively. Finalists Delfina Brea and Tamara Icardo have both moved up one place to sixth and seventh, leapfrogging semi-finalist Patricia Llaguno, who is now eighth after dropping two places.

Looking down at the rankings, quarter-finalists Bárbara Las Heras and Verónica Virsedas both went up two places, now sitting at 24th and 26th respectively. Young duo Carmen Goenaga and Beatriz Caldera also made the quarter-finals, and move up to joint-30th.
