In addition to old familiar tournament venues, new locations will be in store for the world's best padel players in 2015, including Dubai, Monte Carlo and Lisbon.

Firstly, the change in the competition format, with two new tournament categories, the "Masters" and the "Challenger". Secondly, especially the new venues in Dubai and Monte Carlo and thirdly, after 13 years of dominance, Juan Martín Díaz and Fernando Belasteguin will go their separate ways on the padel court and compete against each other from now on."
