FIP RISE abs 5100 1º Memorial Candido Fernández Ledo. Málga

 

The last tournament held of the international circuit, the CUPRA FIP TOUR, from September 24 to 27, took place in the magnificent facilities of the Alhambra del Golf club, in Estepona, being, in addition, the first time that this circuit has a stage in Andalusia.

The response to the event was a success, with participation that exceeded 100 pairs and a level of play typical of the best players of the professional circuit.

 

 

The men’s category had a total of 76 registered pairs, forcing the lower-ranked players to win a place for the final draw in a very tight pre-qualifying and qualification previous phase.

The entire competition had a remarkably high level, and this was demonstrated in the tight results. The Spanish team Edu Alonso and Jesús Moya knew how to better adapt to the situation and without losing a set through their way to the championship, defeating 61 61 the seed 5, who reached for the first time a FIP RISE finals, Mario del Castillo and Javier Pérez.

 

 

No less spectacular was the women’s category. The final draw had 24 pairs among which were players used to be part of the main draws of the World Padel Tour.

The seed 1, Nuria Rodriguez Camacho and Ana Fernandez de Osso, both from Andalusia, confirmed their status as favorites, taking the tournament with a result of 63 36 63 against the seed number 2, Nuria Vivancos and Ariadna Cañellas (recent FIP ​​STAR CAGLIARI winner).

.

 

The organization of the competition was a success, and from here we want to thank the Andalusian Padel Federation for their effort in bringing out an international tournament that is not being easy with the current situation. Also always thank the Spanish Padel Federation for their involvement, especially its president, Ramón Morcillo, who was able to enjoy the competition, honoring the competition with his presence.

 

 

We know that the tournament was just a preview of what will be the last tournament of the year in Andalusia, FIP STAR MIJAS, which we are sure will once again leave the name of the Spanish institutions in a high place.
