In professional padel it’s well known that when there are break ups, new couples are automatically generated. However, more and more often there are splits, which makes it difficult for fans to know which player goes with whom.
In recent days, there have been many announcements of splits, with the Granada Open being the latest tournament they have played. The proximity of the Brussels Open, which takes place next week, has led to the announcement this Tuesday of the new couples that have been formed.
The list of registered players for the Belgian tournament has been closed this midday. Although some new couples have been published in the last few hours, others haven’t been released yet, making it official with the closing of the list of participants for the next World Padel Tour tournament.
There are many new couples that will make their debut in Brussels, both in the men’s and women’s categories, which we’ll tell you about below!
