Bastien Blanqué and Dylan Guichard are unstoppable at FIP ​​Rise Monaco and are having a great tournament so far, reaching the final without having lost a single set.

And yet, in this semi-final against the Geens / Cassetta pair, it was far from won. On paper, the No. 1 seed was the favorite, and the start of the match seemed off to a bad start.

Indeed, the French pair must suffer a break from the start of the match. It's hard, but the Blanqué / Guichard pair fight and are especially incredibly effective in the points of gold.

In the key moments of the match, it is always the French pair who manage to be the most effective, like this end of the first set.

Bastien Blanqué largely held his diagonal against Clément Geens, while the Italian was perhaps the least consistent player on the track, often caught out by the left-handed Dylan Guichard.

Final victory 7/5 7/5 for the French pair who head to a final where they will be slightly favorite since they will play against the number 5 seed of the tournament, the survivors of this tournament, Collado Losada / Santigosa Sastre, who battled against the 7th seed to win down to the wire in the tie-break of the 3rd set.

The final is scheduled for tomorrow morning at 10 a.m. live on the channel FIP YouTube.
