The French number one Alix Collombon hit hard last weekend by winning alongside new Spanish partner Jessica Castello the FIP Star Burriana 2021. 

A victory acquired with style. The International Federation of Padel praised the performance of Alix, which thus becomes “the first French player to win a FIP STAR tournament".

For FIP, it's about "a step forward for the padel French, whose growth is accelerating. Alix Collombon signed, with her victory at the Fip Star Burriana 2021, an unprecedented result in the padel French feminine."

The FIP continues:

One of the objectives of the International Federation of Padel begins to materialize, confirming that players, both from France and from other countries of the world, are entering the most important events of the official FIP-WPT world ranking.
