A slightly unusual fact in Bordeaux P2, which some may have noticed: Miguel Lamperti did his warm-up with the racketAgustín Tapia. The world number 1 was not present in Gironde but it is with an AT10 model and not ML10 that Miguelito has started. For what ? Quite simply because an unusual disappointment happened to the Argentinian, who found himself without his bag a few minutes before his match against Bastien Blanqué and Dylan Guichard.

The fault of Fernando Belasteguin, as told to us Julen Fabas, coordinator of the ball boys, who had a special experience: “In the room where the players were, everyone started to panic so I asked what was happening... in fact, Bela had left with Lamperti's bag, who ended up without his rackets..."

Obviously, there is general panic because finding yourself without a racket a few seconds before your match never bodes well. This is where Julen comes in: “I took my bag, with my racket. So I told Belluati that I had Nox. So we ran off to get my racket, which is that of Tapia. So, he warmed up with mine then, at the end of the warm-up, he collected his bag”.

Obviously, we are not far from the catastrophe for the native of Bahia Blanca who was lucky to come across Julen's racket.

In any case, the adventure continues for Miguel Lamperti who will play his second round, with Juan Cruz Belluati today, at Bordeaux P2. The veterans of the circuit face the 3 seed this Thursday: Momo Gonzalez and Alex Ruiz.

It was his brother who one day told him to accompany him on a track. padel, since then, Gwenaëlle has never left the court. Except when it comes to going to watch the broadcast of Padel Magazine, World Padel Tour… or Premier Padel…or the French Championships. In short, she is a fan of this sport.
