After participating last summer in Tokyo Olympics, where a sunstroke knocked him out of the quarter-finals, his aforementioned victory in Indian Wells had a huge impact across Spain, although it seemed that some in Catalonia, rather than rejoicing, were upset to see him celebrate his success with a Spanish flag. And of courseOne thing is that the opinions in social networks were for all the usual fans and non-fans, but quite different, and this activates the first, from a Digital newspaper and radio will accuse For not wanting to speak Catalan with the Catalan media.
Thus, in ElNacional.cat An article was written so that it was recalled that “the program” Tu diràs “of RAC1 He interviewed her coach to give her encouragement and warmth as she began to see the light at the end of the tunnel., in October 2019. And now, in October 2021, RAC1 wanted to interview her again at a completely different time for her. A moment of joy, the best career moment of your life for sure. A moment to talk about the successes and congratulate her… But Paula Padusa, now, did not adapt to pick up the phone, and they of many of the station’s programs were behind her all day long”.
“I am sympathetic and understand that today she will have fifty, sixty or eighty requests for international and government interviews.

Interview in “Diari de Girona”
The truth is Paola has always been present in the Catalan and Catalan mediaAnd this time he did too, obviously when he was thinking that he was in the States. for example, In the “Diari de Girona”, a newspaper written entirely in Catalan. “Aside from being one of the best players in the world, I also want to inspire people,” the interview title read. “With the Indian Wells Masters in his pocket, his first major success, the tennis player reviews his still-short career while criticizing excessive pressure on the elite,” the subtitle added.
However, in RAC1 they accused the inks against the tennis player: “Yes, she has given interviews in various Spanish media. If you want to listen to Paula Padusa in Spanish, you will listen to her.”.

He has been taking care of her since 2019. I complain openly about people who act as candidates, who forget their origins. I am convinced that the request for RAC1 will not reach her.”
After a day he was his partner Jordi Basti who congratulated Padusa “for her ability to respond. Bravo, bravo and bravo,” though she then insisted that “RAC1 searched for her all day long to be able to talk to her.
