Today, the BOSS German Padel Open presented by SIXT were dominated by the men's and women's round of 16 matches. The complete squad of the top 10 players of the current ranking of the World Padel Tour (WPT) was challenged.

The starting signal for the round of 16 was given by none other than the number 1 and 2 of the world in the women's singles: Ariana Sánchez and Paula Josemaría. The two Spaniards gave their compatriots no chance winning 6-1, 6-1, impressively underlining their ambitions to win the title in Düsseldorf. Delfina Brea (7th in the WPT ranking) and Beatriz González (5th) also made it into the round of the last eight. The duo won against Marta Talaván and Nuria Rodríguez, who had defeated the German duo Denise Höfer and Victoria Kurz on center court at the CASTELLO the day before.

Qualified for the women's quarterfinals are:

- Ariana Sánchez (1st) & Paula Josemaría (2nd).

- Tamara Icardo (9th) & María Virginia (8th)

- Delfina Brea (7th) & Beatriz González (5th)

- Verónica Virseda (17th) & Claudia Jensen (11th)

- Claudia Fernández (20th) & Victoria Iglesias (19th)

- Gemma Triay (3rd) & Marta Ortega (6th)

- Lucía Sainz (15th) & Patricia Llaguno (18th)

- Alejandra Salazar (4th) & Sofia Araujo (10th).

Wins for the favorites and a surprise in the men's race

In the men's event, all but one of the favored duos made it to the quarterfinals. Among them are Miguel Yanguas (17th) and Fernando Belasteguín (12th), who beat Vincent Jülich and Daniel Lingen in the main round.

The main round defeaters of the second German men's duo of Johannes Lindmeyer and Matthias Wunner had the toughest nut to crack in the round of 16. And indeed, the number 1 team Agustín Tapia and Arturo Coello was also too high a hurdle for Iván Ramírez and Pablo García.

Valentino Libaak (41st) and Leandro Roman Augsburger (31st) provided a small surprise. They eliminated the team Jerónimo González (9th) and Javier Garrido Gómez (15th), which was clearly better placed in the WPT ranking.
