Brea, from the candles in the hotel to the cake on court: good debut with Bea Gonzalez

“Cumpleaños feliz, te deseamos a ti”. Delfina Brea’s day began and ended the same way. It started in the hotel hosting the Milan Premier Padel P1 players, with ‘colleagues’ showing up at the table where she was having breakfast with two slices of cake and a candle; Brea, the number 3 seed in the women’s draw at the Allianz Cloud, then made herself a present (with cake, this time a whole one, and the birthday’s song) also on the court, passing the first round paired with Bea Gonzalez, beating 6-1 6-2 Spain’s Beatriz Caldera Sanchez and Portugal’s Ana Catarina Nogueira, also with her family in the stands.

“Hello Milan, thank you all – Brea said –. I’m very happy to be here and to have won on such a special day”. She is only 24 years old, Delfina, but she is already firmly in the Top 10 of world padel: Bea and Brea, in this 2023 that marked the debut of the women’s draw in the Premier Padel circuit, have already won a tournament, in Madrid. And Milan Premier Padel is also decisive in this year, considering that the three stages played were won by three different ‘parejas’ (Triay/Ortega in Rome, Josemaria/Sanchez in Paris). In the round of 16 on Thursday, Brea and Gonzalez will face qualifiers Xenia Clasca Vidiella and Raquel Piltcher.
