WPT men's rankings changes: Bela climbs, Campagnolo shoots up

Following the spectacular Blockchain.com Miami Padel Open 2022, the WPT men's rankings have been shaken up as the first tournament of 2022 reached its conclusion.

The tournament featured many upsets, including a shock round of 16 exit for number ones Alejandro Galán and Juan Lebrón.

A tournament win could have moved number twos Paquito Navarro and Martín Di Nenno within touching distance of overtaking the reigning champions, but a quarter-final loss prevented this.

Top ten: two Argentinians swap places

Further down the top ten, the only change in WPT men's rankings is Miami Padel Open winner Fernando Belasteguín.

El Boss, who won his 63rd WPT tournament on Sunday, has moved up to eighth, dropping Franco Stupaczuk down a spot to ninth.

Stupa and his partner Alejandro Ruiz stranded in the quarter-finals, leaving them short on points.

Within the top 20, first-time finalist Javi Garrido jumped two places to find himself 18th now. While first-time winner Arturo Coello, currently 15th, made big gains on the players ahead of him, he stays put for now.

Big gainers in WPT men's rankings top 100

Looking down the rest of the top 100, finalist Lucas Campagnolo is the biggest gainer of all. The Brazilian, who made his first-ever final as well on Sunday alongside Garrido while also knocking out two of the top three pairs, earned 700 points.

This meant he shot up 14 places, now putting him at 25th. It is the 26-year-old's highest ranking of his career.

Further down, Swede Daniel Windahl has moved up to 90th, gaining seven places after his career-best result of reaching the qualifying final.
