Brussels in numbers: Lebrón hits milestone, Lima and Llaguno's historic streak

The seventh World Padel Tour event of the 2022 season saw the men's and women's Circuits touch down in Belgium for the Circus Brussels Padel Open 2022.

Besides the many memorable moments the best players in the world left for the local fans throughout the week, it was also an event full of stand-out statistics.

Here is an overview of the best numbers and stats that have emerged from Belgium!

Juan Lebrón reaches another milestone

Three-time reigning number one Juan Lebrón conquered the inaugural Circus Brussels Padel Open 2022 on Sunday alongside Alejandro Galán.

For the 27-year-old Lebrón, it was his 20th World Padel Tour title. This draws the man from Puerto de Santa María level with legend Juan Martín Díaz, who won his last WPT event in 2015.

It was also the 15th title Lebrón and Galán have won together since coming together in 2020. Only three other pairings have won titles together in World Padel Tour history, with Fernando Belasteguín/Pablo Lima leading the way with 35 wins between 2015 and 2019.

Perhaps not entirely coincidentally, Lima and Bela are the only other two male players who have been number one for three consecutive seasons, as Lebrón is currently.

Lima and Llaguno on top for ten seasons

Both Pablo Lima and Patricia Llaguno reached their first final of 2022 on Sunday. While both lost their respective matches, they did keep a historic streak going.

Llaguno is now the second women's player to have reached at least one final in all ten World Padel Tour seasons, Alejandra Salazar being the only other player with the same record.

Lima is the third men's player after Belasteguín and Sanyo Gutiérrez, who both also have won at least one title in all ten seasons. The Brazilian Lima could equal this if he were to win a tournament in 2022. It would also be the 50th title for The Cannon from Porto Alegre.

Reaching finals in all ten World Padel Tour seasons not only shows how extraordinary the players are, but how consistently great they have been over the past decade.

Belgium, part of WPT history

After four Exhibition events in the past, Belgium has now hosted its first-ever official ranked event.

The Circus Brussels Padel Open 2022 was a resounding success, with the Tour & Taxis at the heart of the Belgian capital proving a stunning venue.

Belgium is the 12th different country to host a ranked World Padel Tour event, with Denmark, Austria, France and the Netherlands to make their debuts as well later this season.
