Borges’ accusations involve other players. “mTomorrow Tuesday we are going to have a single game as a result of what Lebrn-Galn has done, of what Arroyo has done with Yanguas, of what Pablo Lima himself has done, who says he is coming down here but wants to infiltrate to play Chile. They decide which tournaments they play”, she lamented.
Alejandro Galán’s answer
After the controversial statements of Lisandro Borges came to light, the player Alejandro Galn wanted to clarify the situation by explaining the ailments he suffers from his knee.
“Given the statements by Lisandro Borges, WPT promoter of the tournaments in Buenos Aires, La Rioja, Chile and Paraguay, where he questions my honor and commitment to the sport, I would like to express the following.
Trying to question my honor and respect for this sport is something that I will not allow
Above all is my passion for paddle tennis and above all respect for the fans of this wonderful sport. I have been suffering from major problems in both of my knees for two years, which I have never used as an excuse, but after evaluating it with many specialists, they have recommended that if I want to have a long and healthy career I have to start prioritizing my health over the competition.
Last year, with the objective of the season practically fulfilled, we decided to go to Buenos Aires, Argentina (tournament organized by Lisandro), with the desire to offer the best possible show to the Argentine fans and win there. We did it, ending the year with more than 30 weeks of competition, where we won 14 titles and played more than 80% of the weekends during the season, with the wear and tear that this meant for my knees.
This year, after a very short pre-season and with very little time on the court, due to my injury and the treatment that I have carried out for 6 weeks, I decided to play the first two tournaments of the year and later assess with my medical team and sports. The assessment of the professionals who advise me has been to stop and take care of myself. I will continue training under medical supervision with less workload, with a specific treatment preparing me for Chile and subsequent tournaments.
My intention is always to play as many tournaments as possible. I assure you that it makes me even more angry not to be able to compete with my partner and the rest of the players on the circuit and above all it hurts me not to be able to go to a country that has so much love and passion for paddle tennis such as Argentina. Trying to question my honor and respect for this sport is something that I am not going to allow and take the measures I deem appropriate against anyone who tries to undermine my professionalism. “
