Malaga's Carolina Navarro wins first padel championship with new partner Eli Amatriaín

  • The final of this new Challenger of the World Padel Tour, against Alix Collombon and Jessica Castelló, was a tighter game (6-4, 7-6)

Local padel player Carolina Navarro and Eli Amatriaín of Logroño have won their first title together this season, the Calanda Challenger (held in Teruel).

Both played a good tournament, winning all their matches in just two sets. In the semifinal, they beat a new women's doubles pair who have already had great results: Estepona's Mari Carmen Villalba and Carla Mesa.

The final of this new Challenger of the World Padel Tour, against Alix Collombon and Jessica Castelló, was a tighter game (6-4, 7-6). Navarro and Amatriaín maintained their dynamic play in the first set and they ended up winning 6-4, despite fierce resistance. In the second was even harder, as Collombon and Castelló took the initiative, although the Malaga player and her partner came away with the title.
