The best Padel players in the world will be coming to Vale do Lobo next month for the fourth edition of the Padel Nations Cup, one of the top summer sports events in the Algarve involving players from the top four nations of the world.
The event is taking place on Thursday, August 2 and Friday, August 3 at Vale do Lobo’s Tennis Academy.
Fernando Belasteguin (Argentina) and Pablo Lima (Brazil), the Portugal Masters titleholders, return to the Algarve alongside Godo Diaz (Argentina) and Gervásio del Bono (Brazil). Spain will be represented by Aday Santana and Juan Martin Diaz, while the national colours of Portugal will be defended by Miguel Oliveira, the world vice-champion, and Vasco Pascoal.
The scheduled matches and programme of the Padel Nations Cup promises to provide spectators with games filled with drama and excitement, beginning with Portugal facing Brazil on August 2.
This match will see Brazilian Gervásio del Bono, who is also the current Padel coach for Portugal, teaming with the world number one, Pablo Lima. They will be taking on Miguel Oliveira, who recently achieved the best ever result of a Portuguese player in the World Padel Tour after reaching the semi-finals in Cabrera del Mar, who will be playing alongside Portugal number three Vasco Pascoal in this very challenging match.
The first day is completed with a match between Argentina, being represented by Belasteguin and Godo Diaz, the winner of the Lisbon Challenger 2017, against Martin Diaz and Aday Santana of Spain.
