Galan and Lebron still champions: beat the ‘Superpibes’ in an epic final First Premier title of the season for the Ale and Juan: “We live for this”

An epic final, the kind that will remain in the history of padel. One year later, it is still Ale Galan and Juan Lebron who are the kings of Milano Premier Padel P1, at the end of three hours of battle, show, tricks, hugs and tears. Those of joy of the winners, those of sadness of the ‘Superpibes’ Franco Stupaczuk and Martin Di Nenno, who were able to take the match to the third set.

Three hours, but also three tiebreaks: it ended 7-6 6-7 7-6, a match that Galan and Lebron had to win twice. Yes, because after winning the first set, at 5-4 in the second set the Spaniards had three match points, none of which they took advantage of, with Lebron who in the decisive points could have done something more. It then went to the second tiebreak, with Stupa/Di Nenno able to take home a set that lasted an hour and eight minutes. In the third, the first break, the one that looked like it could be decisive for success, was again that of Lebron and Galan (4-3), who, however, suffered the break in the next game. And perhaps it was right that, after such a show, the match was still decided in the final game: a good start by Stupaczuk and Di Nenno, a comeback by Galan and Lebron up to 5-5, with the fourth match point being the good one.

“First of all, I have to congratulate Franco and Martin – said ‘el Lobo’ Lebron –. The four of us did the show: we live for this, to win the title. Thanks to Ale for supporting me especially in the second set when I didn’t play well. We had a difficult season, with a long period without playing due to injury: but here we are, with the trophy in our hands”. “We were looking forward to being here to live this great week – added Galan –. We know that Italy loves us, as we love Italy and Milan. We faced two warriors, but I am very proud of the work we did and that we managed to show on the court. We wanted to be ourselves again”. They succeeded, winning their first Premier Padel title of the season on the last tournament of the season, against super Franco Stupaczuk, who was voted best player of the tournament (with Bea Gonzalez mvp of the women’s draw) despite losing.
