01

No room for upsets

Even though surprises are becoming a staple of this Premier Padel season, with lower-ranked teams advancing to unexpected stages of each tournament, the top teams made sure they left little room for upsets in Asunción.
The semi-finals of both the men's and women's competitions confirmed the superiority of the top teams. In the men’s contest, third-seeds Juan Lebrón and Paquito Navarro faced top-seeds Agustín Tapia and Arturo Coello, while fourth-seeds Franco Stupaczuk and Martín Di Nenno matched up against second-seeds Alejandro Galán and Federico Chingotto, with the two top seeds advancing to the final.

In the women’s competition, top ranked Paula Josemaría and Ariana Sánchez encountered third-seeds Gemma Triay and Claudia Fernández, while second-seeds Bea González and Delfina Brea met fifth-seeds Martita Ortega and Verónica Virseda.

Magical rallies

Once again, Premier Padel players demonstrated why this series is the best in the world, with extraordinary rallies that made the crowd in Asunción roar.
Chingotto seemed to be in control at all times, with no-look, behind the back shots that left opponents confused, while Lebrón and Navarro showcased their extraordinary defensive skills at several stages of their semi-final match against Tapia and Coello.
In the women's competition, Triay produced one of the shots of the year in an encounter at the net against Sánchez Josemaría in their semi-final match. Her behind-the-back volley caught the top seeds off guard and granted her and her team-mate Fernández a point that had seemed impossible to achieve.

Coello and Tapia find their form again

Tapia and Coello were back to winning ways in the men's competition. Their last win took place at the Puerto Cabello P2 on March 31. Since then, Galán and Chingotto had won two consecutive tournaments in Brussels and Seville. This time, Coello-Tapia took revenge and defeated Galán and 'Chingo' in the final (6-1, 3-6 and 7-5).
To reach this final, Tapia and Coello overcame considerable obstacles. They had to bring their best game in their quarter-finals match to defeat red hot sixth-seeds Mike Yanguas and Javi Garrido (6-4, 6-4). The next day, in the semi-finals, they faced Lebrón and Navarro. Coello and Tapia came back from an adverse match point situation to cap off a three set nail-biting win (3-6, 6-0 and 7-5).
This win means Coello-Tapia have claimed four trophies this season. Their closest competitors, Galán and Chingotto, have won two tournaments this year.

González and Brea continue to look unstoppable

González and Brea entered the tournament as the overwhelming favourites to win the women's competition in Asunción. The pair were coming off three straight Premier Padel tournament wins and they managed to add a fourth one in spectacular fashion in Paraguay.
Bea and 'Delfi' battled through a tough quarter-finals match against seventh-seeds Virginia Riera and Sofía Araújo to win a three-set thriller in the tie break (6-1, 1-6 and 7-6). They then swept past Ortega and Virseda in the semi finals (6-2, 7-5).
In what was a repeat of the Brussels P2 final against Triay and Fernández, González and Brea once again came out on top. Smart decision-making was key throughout the match to claiming a fourth straight tournament win (6-3, 7-5).
