Swedish organiser after Icardo's criticism: ”We were surprised”
After leaving the W.O in the Swedish Padel Open, both Tamara Icardo and Delfi Brea strongly criticized the Swedish organizer. Now they respond:
— We don't really know what she means by her criticism, says Swedish Padel Open's chairman, Niklas Persson.
There was never a match for Tamara Icardo and Delfi Brea in Sweden. Icardo suffered an allergic reaction and the pair had to withdraw from the tournament.
After the tournament, both strongly criticized the organization in Sweden. Now the organization responds to PadelDirekt.
— We were very surprised when we first read it. She hasn't said anything to us either. We were in the emergency room with her, we had staff with her there. And stated that there was nothing to be done. We also had doctors to her the next day who stated the same thing. This just needs to heal out. So we don't really know what she means by her criticism, says Nicklas Persson.
Icardo and Brea also miss the Madrid Master and the following competition in Amsterdam.
