At the Monte Carlo Padel Master 2016, the French came in numbers to try to qualify last weekend first for the qualifications of Monday, then and especially for the main draw of the Monte Carlo Padel Master which began Monday for the gentlemen and Tuesday for the ladies at Padel Soleil.

Unfortunately, 100% of the French men's pairs fell during the pre-qualifiers of this weekend. Note that in the ladies is almost a faultless.

Qualifiers that show the way to go

Nallé Grinda alongside Sweden's Anton Anderson and Laurent Bensadoun who played with Denis Perino were unable to reach the final draw of the tournament. Their respective matches are similar since clearly the Spanish-speaking pairs have made a mouthful of our mixed pairs which counted a French.

Same for our French pairs fallen on the grounds of Padel Soleil in Beausoleil.

The tournament continues with French 0 at the start of the tournament.

This tournament shows that it will take a lot of work to France to level with the Spanish-speaking competition.
