World Padel Tour Returns to Austria – Vienna Open Begins
The World Padel Tour circuit returns to the Austrian capital to hold the highly anticipated Vienna Padel Open.
With many novelties, expected comebacks, and notable absences, the first round of the World Padel Tour Vienna Open begins this Tuesday.
The chosen venue for this eleventh event of the circuit is the impressive Steffl Arena, an indoor stadium with a capacity of 7,000 spectators. This meeting place will become the epicenter of the competition, hosting the world's best padel players.
One of the novelties of this Vienna Open is the change in the color of the carpet used on the center court. After eight years, the circuit brings back the black color, abandoning the typical blue that has been used in recent years.
Additionally, the competition will see the return of Agustín Tapia and Arturo Coello after Coello's recent injury setbacks that caused them to miss the last tournament. However, Juan Lebron and Alejandro Galán will not be present at the Austrian event. The number one seeds will be unable to participate in the tournament due to Lebron's recurring epicondylitis injury.
Tuesday marks the start of the first round of the last 32 in the men's draw, without televised coverage. The streaming will begin on Wednesday, May 24, with the second day of the round of 32. All matches played on the center court will be broadcast live through WorldPadelTourTV, the official circuit app.
