Denmark in numbers: Ortega's 10th, Tapia's achievement & Araújo's final debut

The first-ever Danish Padel Open 2022 left us with a lot of upsets and excitement, but also with interesting statistics.

Marta Ortega reached a milestone after winning on Sunday, while Agustín Tapia equalled a record and Sofia Araújo became a Portuguese trail blazer.

Below, we have a deeper look at the three best statistics to come out of Denmark!

Double-digit titles

Winning her first title for almost two years on Sunday with the Danish Padel Open 2022Marta Ortega lifted a tournament title for the tenth time in her World Padel Tour career.

Despite only being 25, Ortega has been active in WPT since the first season in 2013. Alongside Lucía Sainz, the Madrilean made her first final in 2014 at 17 years old and won her first Open alongside Ariana Sánchez in 2017.

Seven of Ortega's ten titles came in 2019, the season she and Marta Marrero became number ones together.

Since then, the Spaniard won with Bea González in 2020, and again in 2022 at the inaugural Danish Padel Open.

Tapia equals promising record

Like Ortega, Agustín Tapia conquered the Danish Padel Open 2022 on Sunday. Alongside compatriot Sanyo Gutiérrez, Tapia has now won two titles this season and three since coming together with 2018's number one.

For his career, Tapia has now won eight World Padel Tour titles, equaling Juani Mieres and Matías Díaz.

They were the two players with most WPT titles without ever being number ones of the world. Tapia has now drawn level with them.

At just 22 years old, this surely is a very good sign for Tapia, who many have dubbed a future number now. Could he fulfill his promise this season?

Araújo makes first-ever final

Despite losing on Sunday, Sofia Araújo will look back on the Danish Padel Open fondly.

The Portuguese made her first-ever final alongside Mapi Sánchez Alayeto, a temporary pair for that tournament alone as Mapi's twin sister Majo is recovering from injury.

Araújo is the second Portuguese to reach a final after Ana Catarina Nogueira, who did so three times in 2019 with Paula Josemaría, winning once.

She is also the 23rd different woman to make a final, and the 57th with both Circuits combined.
