Damien Bayard and Jérémy Garcia win the Open Padel 3 Troyes without having lost a single set, or even a little fear to sink your teeth into.

In the final, the logic was respected, since the pair 20 of the tournament, Johan Stark / Ulysse Bertrand, “almost” could not do anything against the gunner Damien Bayard and the iron defense of Jérémy Garcia. Victory for the favorites 6/4 6/2 in 1h09. However, Johan and Ulysse may have some regrets when we see the number of break points obtained: 13 for only 2 breaks. Conversely, Damien and Jérémy will accumulate 5 breaks over these 2 sets out of the 8 break points obtained.

Efficiency was therefore on the side of the 1st seed. We will note a surprising series of 11 points won consecutively in this match and a 2nd set completed in just 21 minutes, which illustrates the few rallies that there were in this match.

It's a match that will not go down in the annals of the best games of the tournament. On the other hand, with this finalist place, Johan Stark and Ulysse Bertrand certainly sign the best performance in P1000 for two players beyond the 200th French place.

Remember that Stark occupies 274th place in France and Bertrand 386th place, they were really not the two players expected at this stage of the competition. And their adventure started with a bang from the 16th, then a prestigious victory against the 4th seed, Authier / Poirieux. Pair 10, Huet / Filho, will also pay the price in the quarter.

A very special tournament, and for good reason, from the 8th and then the quarter-finals, no less than the 2nd seed (Maigret / Hanouna), the 4th seed (Authier / Poirieux), the 7th seed ( Grodenic / Pommier), seed 8 (Garcia / Groll) as well as pairs 10 (Huet / FILHO) and 12 (Olivier / Wolff) had all disappeared, leaving the top of the table open to pairs 15 (Couturier / Durban) and 20 (Stark / Bertrand) to reach this final of this P1000.

We will also note the good tournament in the lower part of the table of pair 11 (Guy de Chamisso / Gortzounian) who lost in the quarter-final against the winners of this P1000.

The 3rd seed (Mitjana / Foure) held its place until the semi-final where it also lost to the future winners.

This first P1000 organized at Padel 3 Troyes is a success and will inspire others!
