It was the surprise this weekend: Alix Collombon and Lorena Rufo have separated et won't play together on the Premier Padel this season. This information is all the more surprising given thatAlix Collombon had delivered, during the N1 2023 interclubs, want to continue the adventure with the young Spanish player.
We asked the Lyonnaise about this separation. As well as on top the identity of his future partnere.
A decision on the part of the Spaniard
"It's not my decision, it was Lorena who decided to end our association. To be honest, I also asked questions at the end of the season. Even if my basic idea was to give us time et to improve which didn't work at the end of the season.
Her decision, I totally respect her. I have no problem with her, it's part of the padel. "
Convincing beginnings and disillusionments
“Our association had worked very well in Roland. It boded very good things and that’s what we hoped for. Afterwards, it got more complicated, we had draws that were not easy to be honest.
We lost a few matches, we lost confidence. It was hard afterwards to give our best version of the team. It’s as if we hadn’t managed to find the mayonnaise that had taken Roland so well.”
The future partner already known?
"I already know who I'm going to play with this season and I will announce it soon. Probably in the next few days in fact.
My new partner, what I can already say about her is that she has a large grinta and big physique. She is a player with whom I get along very well for a while now I am excited to begin this association !"
A new player with a big grin and a big physique? Can we imagine an association with Marta Barrera or Carmen Goenaga? Alix tells us, we will have to wait. But do you have a prediction about Alix Collombon’s future partner?
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.
