The big favorites for the WPT of Brussels
Also in this edition of the WPT, big names are participating who have a chance to win the title of the WPT in Brussels. Among the men, you should especially look at Franco Stupaczuk & Martin Di Nenno (WPT rank: 2), Sanyo Gutierrez & Jeronimo Gonzalez (WPT rank: 3) and Fede Chingotto & Paquito Navarro (WPT rank: 4) . The biggest favorites for this edition of the WPT are perhaps Arturo Coello & Agustín Tapia (WPT rank: 1), as they have won 3 of the last 4 WPT finals. The final that was lost was against the number 1 of the WPT ranking Juan LeBron and Alejandro Galan.
There is also a huge setback for the men for the original number 1 of the WPT ranking. Juan LeBron has suffered an injury, preventing him and Alejandro Galan from participating in the Brussels WPT and therefore unable to defend their 2022 title.
Among the women there is really only one big favorite and that isGemma Triay & Alejandra SalazarWPT rank: 1). Of the last 9 tournaments, this duo has only lost 1, this was in the final of the WPT in Barcelona.
