Three Number Ones to start 2021

The World Padel Tour ranking is already in motion. After the freeze suffered in 2020 due to COVID-19, 2021 already has the updated world ranking, recalculating the positions based on the actions of 2020 and 2019. And new year, new numbers one. Alejandro Galán, in the male classification and Alejandra Salazar and Ariana Sánchez, in the female, lead the World Padel Tour ranking to start the 2021 season.

Alejandro Galán (Leganés, 1996) achieves at the start of 2021 his great dream since he was a child: the Number One of the world. After completing two seasons of vertigo, the Madrilenian reaches the after a 2020 season in which he has dominated the game, winning in 6 of the 11 torunaments held in the year. In the 2021 season, his competition will start from the top, next to Juan Lebrón, to pursue an end of campaign with the two Spaniards at the top of the ranking.

Alejandra Salazar (Madrid, 1985) already knows what it means to occupy the most privileged position in the World Padel Tour classification. Almost two years later, the Madrid player regains the position she gave up at the start of 2019, and she does so after signing eight titles between 2019 and 2020 together with Ariana Sánchez. In 2021, she will join one of the fittest players on the circuit, Gemma Triay, to try to retain the crown.


Ariana Sánchez (Reus, 1997) makes her debut as number one at 23 years old, becoming the second youngest player to reach that poition after Marta Ortega. After two seasons with Alejandra Salazar, in which her consistency has taken her to the top of the world ranking, she will seek to remain anchored at the top with her new sports project with Paula Josemaría.
