Stupaczuk and Di Nenno take men's title, Josemaria and Sanchez live up to the hype in women's event- World Padel Tour Amsterdam

With two high-class finals, the second edition of the World Padel Tour Decathlon Amsterdam Open came to an end on Sunday. In the men's event, Argentines Franco Stupaczuk and Martin di Nenno ran away with the title. For the women, Spain's Paula Josemaria and Ariana Sanchez won.

Among the men, Stupaczuk and Di Nenno continued their good form of the second half of the season. They recently won four tournaments in a row and also proved the best in Amsterdam. The world number three and four defeated Frederico Chingotto and crowd favourite Francisco 'Paquito' Navarro in the final: 4-6, 6-2, 6-2.

Stupaczuk and Di Nenno did not get the win easily. In the first set, they struggled against Chingotto and Navarro, who occasionally got the crowd on their couches with his defensive skills and beautiful balls. At 34 years old, Navarro may be a few years older than the other three players on the court, but the quality is still dripping off him.

But in the second and third sets, Stupaczuk and Di Nenno showed why they have been in excellent form lately. They did not let themselves be thrown off guard, turned the match around and crowned themselves deserved winners. 'Amsterdam was amazing,' said Di Nenno. And Stupaczuk: 'Thank you and see you next year.'

Among the women, Paula Josemaria and Ariana Sanchez more than lived up to their status. The Spanish duo had started the World Padel Tour Decathlon Amsterdam Open as favourites and beat Spain's Beatriz Gonzalez and her Argentinian partner Delfina Brea (7-6, 6-0) in the final on Sunday afternoon.

With their win in two sets, they not only wrote the World Padel Tour Amsterdam Open to their name. Their victory also closed the year 2023 as numbers one in the world. Moreover, it was already their thirteenth title on the World Padel Tour this year. A record.

The first set in the attractive final was evenly matched and lasted more than an hour. Josemaria and Sanchez got a set point as early as 6-5, but it was expertly cleared by Gonzalez. In the tiebreak, the virtually unbeatable duo won the set after all.

Gonzalez and Brea did not recover from this mental blow. They had to watch as Josemaria and Sanchez easily won the second set and captured their thirteenth WPT title of the year. 'A dream has come true,' Sanchez said of finishing the year as the world's number one. And Josemaria: 'The Netherlands will forever be in my heart.'
