Vienna in numbers: Josemaría/Sánchez break record, Galán's 30

The inaugural Vienna Padel Open was a resounding success, bringing padel to another new country on the globe as the sport continues to spread.

Throughout the week, several stand-out statistics have popped up, and we have put the best ones in a row below.

Without further ado, here are the best statistics from the Vienna Padel Open 2022.

Ari & Paula - Most wins without being number one

Winning back-to-back tournaments in Marbella and Vienna, numbers two Paula Josemaría and Ariana Sánchez have not only taken the lead of The Race 2022, but they have made a record their own.

They are now the sole pairing, male or female, to have the most wins to their name without reaching number one status. Nine total tournaments have now been won by Ari & Paula since getting together at the start of last season, winning six in 2021 and three in the current campaign.

Previously, Sánchez and her former partner Alejandra Salazar as well as Paquito Navarro/Sanyo Gutiérrez had the record for most wins without being number ones with eight titles, but now, that record is for Sánchez and Josemaría.

They could be stripped of this record, however, if they can manage to finish as the number ones by the end of 2022...

Galán reaches another landmark

The week in Austria ended on a low note for two-time reigning number ones Alejandro Galán and Juan Lebrón, who lost the Vienna Padel Open 2022 final in three sets to Agustín Tapia and Sanyo Gutiérrez.

However, for Madrid-born Galán, it was his 30th World Padel Tour final. He is only the eighth man to reach this number and the 14th player overall.

Galán has won 23 of those 30 finals, which gives him the second-highest finals win percentage of any player who has disputed at least five finals behind only Fernando Belasteguín.

At just 25 years old, Galán is only just hitting his stride, but already has a lot of success to look back on in World Padel Tour.

Austria the latest country to host WPT

With a successful tournament in the books, Austria has become the 14th different country to host an official Open or Master event in World Padel Tour.

2022 is the most international season in WPT history, with Belgium and Denmark also making their bow in the competition earlier in the campaign.

This further underlines the worldwide growth of padel as a sport and World Padel Tour as a competition!
