The future of women's padel looks for a place in the elite of the World Padel Tour

In recent seasons on the women's World Padel Tour, we've witnessed the breakthrough and consolidation of some young players, who have made it to the top at a very short age. Marta Ortega and Ariana Sánchez's win at the Santander Open 2017 made them the youngest ever winners on tour. A feat that went to prove how the new generations are ready to make the step up. Victoria Iglesias has also become an established top 20 player. This will surely be an example for some of the young candidates looking to become the best in the world. This season there's a group of players to look out for:

Marta Talaván - Cuartos - Granada Open 2017

Marta Talaván (Madrid 12/04/1995) The player from Madrid adapted her game to play on the forehand court next to Carla Mesa. Talavan is a versatile player with a huge capacity to adapt to the demands of the professional game. Eight last sixteen appearances and one quarter final, with a total of 1185 points which left her 23rd in the rankings. Her task is to reach the final rounds and keep up with the pace of the world's best players.

Tamara Icardo - Octavos - Estrella Damm Zaragoza Open 2017

Tamara Icardo (Valencia 10/10/1995) The Valencian made an important stride last season. Her strong finish to the season showed the weapons she possesses on the backhand court. She has a huge reach and is powerful and quick. Icardo stands out because of her elegant execution and her class on court. She seems to have no limits and will look to conquer her targets alongside Lucía Martínez. Last year she made the quarter finals once and grabbed 1017 points which left her 28th.

Elena Ramírez - Dieciseisavos Cerveza Victoria Mijas - Costa del Sol Open 2017

Elena Ramírez (Huelva 29/08/1996) The Andalusian played with Paula José María initially last year and ended the season with Sara Pujals, proving her adaptability on court. Her character and temperament translate onto court, where she is all energy and determination. Last year she couldn't progress beyond the last sixteen. In 2018 she will fight alongside Andrea MedinaThe bar to beat: 942 points and 29th in the rankings.

Nuria Rodríguez - Dieciseisavos - Estrella Damm Zaragoza Open 2017

Nuria Rodríguez (Sanlúcar de Barrameda 09/12/1994) The last sixteen was also a bridge too far for the Andalusian in 2017. A powerful backhand court player that has learnt and grown next to the experienced Angela Caro. Her target is to reach the quarter finals and show her best padel at the latter stages of tournaments. A demanding task on the women's tour.

Aranzazu Osoro - Octavos - Granada Open 2017

Aránzazu Osoro (Parana 03/06/1996) She started the season next to Paula Ehyeragibel and after Paula's injury, ended it with Sandra Hernández. Courage, personality and a competitive edge. That's how this young Argentine international plays on court, who will look to continue evolving next to the experienced Nela Brito. A powerful and energetic player that ended her first full season on tour with 912 points in 32nd place.

Paula Josemaría - Dieciseisavos - Estrella Damm Zaragoza Open 2017

Paula José María (Moraleja 31/10/1996) There are only two left handers in the top 50. The first one is  Cecilia Reiter and the second is this exciting youngster in 39th. She is, however, a very different player to Reiter. Aggressive, vertical and an executer. She doesn't think twice about her shots on court and possesses that sweet touch that all lefties have. In 2018, she will try and grow next to Valeria Pavón.

Beatriz González - Dieciseisavos Cerveza Victoria Mijas - Costa del Sol Open 2017

Beatriz González (Málaga 23/11/2001) The youngest player on tour will turn 17 at the end of this season. A record breaker in terms of her youth, this quick, powerful and creative player has experience at thevery top. She's dominated every category of junior padel and will try and turn all that promise into reality. She starts the campaign in 40th on 722 points and will play with Cata Tenorio.

Delfi Brea - Octavos - Sevilla Open 2017

Delfina Brea (Buenos Aires 05/12/1999) She's on the back of her first full season on the World Padel Tour. Alongside Sara Pujals, the young Argentine international reached the last sixteen three times and grabbed 652 points to finish 44th. A player with a lot of character, hard work and an absolute perfectionist. Delfina will try and make her fluid game a little bit more complete. She will line up next to Portugal's Ana Catarina Nogueira.
