The preprevias started this Saturday in the magnificent complex of TennisPadelSun. A first step for the French, with the aim of reaching the final table.
In addition Benjamin Tison, who disposes with his teammate Victor Mena by wild-card and therefore direct access to the final table, the other tricolors must complete a real obstacle course to try to achieve this. First the previas and then the previas.
In view of number of matches and physical demand, many pairs forfeited the previa stage this morning. This is the case of the duo Julien Seurin/Philemon Raichman but also Maxime Joris and Baptise Moura. The latter finally decided to go to the P1000 in Amiens.
No miracle for our tricolors
The morning was difficult for our French. At 9 a.m., no miracle for the pair Bouet/Ferrero, swept away in less than an hour 6 / 1 6 / 0 by the Spanish-Argentinian duo Rounded/Ibarrola. Same price for Gerson and Joshua against Cabrera and Palos.
Arnaud Piacentille and the Monegasque Florian Valsot stood up to the Spaniards Alejandro Moya and Jorge Angles but they lose in two sets 7 / 6 7 / 6.
After having made a committed first set, the tricolor pair Ritz/Valsot finally collapsed. She bows 7 / 6 6 / 0 salary. Corona and Cinca.
Hope for the letter C
The Franco-Italian pair Maturi/Ammouiatook the best on the tricolor Tran/Pérez duo, victory 6 / 2 6 / 0. Dario and Vincent will face Quiros/Escala at the end of the day (19 p.m.).
It was the little sensation of the morning, the victory of Jean-Michel Pequery and Sébastien Corbelli 6/4 6/4 against the young Spanish pair Ruiz/Morales. The two friends assured and are even directly qualified for the 1/2 final of the preprevias. Their adversaries Francisco Gonzalez and Sergio Borrero De La Fuente did not move.
The two Frenchmen will be able to cross paths with the Franco-Spanish duo Peyret/Zeus who also benefited from a fixed price. The two men will be opposed to the Spaniards Sainz and Rubi at 19 p.m.. In case of victory, Zeus and Peyret would face Corbelli and Pequery tomorrow morning, in the race for previas.
A fan of oval football, round ball but also racket sports, he was stung by the padel during his adolescence in Galicia. As comfortable in front of the camera as behind a microphone, Vince will be able to bring his vision and expertise as a fan of the little yellow ball.
