But we never know, can this unbeatable duo pull out a miracle and grab the top spot by the end of this year? We can’t wait to watch.
Here are the highlights of Navarro’s brilliant performance in the Cordoba Open:
Francisco Navarro Compán was born on February 10, 1989, in Seville, Spain, a young prodigy who started playing padel at the age of five while playing soccer with the children in his neighborhood.
While living in Aguadulce (Almeria), Paquito Navarro’s family taught him the basics of shoveling in the court of urbanization. At the age of eight, he became a member of the Zaudn Golf Club in Seville, where he frequently played with family and friends throughout the summer months.
A few months after this event, Paquito Navarro started competing in junior competitions in the United States and abroad. When he was only ten years old, Ana Bastarreche, enthralled by the immense talent of the young Sevillian player, called to invite him to his first World Cup in Mexico.
The rest, well is history. Now the young boy playing in the court sits on top of aspiring players garnering trophy after trophy.
Alejandro Ruiz and Franco Stupaczuk were defeated in two sets by Navarro and Di Nenno, who scored 25 winners, with Navarro taking the majority.
It was Navarro’s decisiveness and quality that stood out among the other rally leaders like Di Nenno. Two-set defeats for Ruiz and Stupa resulted from the 20-time event winner’s dominance against the pair. This was Ruiz and Stupa’s opportunity to avenge their loss in the Sardinia Open final, which they lost to Ruiz and Stupa.
