At P1000 Padel Infinity of the 4PADEL Bordeaux club, Bastien Blanqué and Johan Bergeron, the reigning French padel champions flew over the competition, like the final won easily against the Parisian pair Tison / Maigret.
Favorites at the rendezvous
Sunday, no surprise, since in the final we had the two best French pairs of the moment Maigret / Tison face Bergeron / Blanqué. A classic now.
A final that everyone was waiting for here with an opposition between the double champions of France 2017 and 2018 and the leader of the French classification. The Shock Tison / Maigret vs Blanqué / Bergeron has therefore taken place at 4PADEL Bordeaux. A shock that will give birth to a smile, and will see the pair Blanqué / Bergeron triumph on their first appearance here at 4PADEL Bordeaux in the final. Score without appeal: 6 / 1 6 / 3.
An incredible level of play of the champions of France, imperial in defense, they left absolutely no chance to a Parisian pair in search of solutions. Blanqué / Bergeron has certainly achieved an exceptional match, but it certainly also benefits from slow playing conditions with a field without silica that does not always favor the attackers.
A beautiful stage of Padel Infinity Tour which brought together 70 pairs this weekend, divided into 4 categories P1000H, P100H, P100F, P100MX.
Vanbauce / De Meyer hit again!
Thomas Vanbauce and Dorian De Meyer, the local players, never stop cutting heads in the padel events. They re-offended this weekend by taking out two big pairs at the P1000.
Their first victims of the day were Thomas Dulion (40) and Jorge De Benito (11) defeated 6 / 3 6 / 1. A very solid game from them against opponents obviously elsewhere in this tournament at home.
The next round they were opposed to another local pair Peyrou / De Barbeyrac. A strange match since each pair had its moment of glory before tiring ... In this case, it is Peyrou / De Barbeyrac who starts the game better by winning this first set 6 / 3. But in the second set Vanbauce / De Meyer puts more physical impact in the match and Peyrou / De Barbeyra bows in the following two sets: 6 / 2 6 / 2.
Thomas Vanbauce offers himself a beautiful birthday present with this ticket for his first semifinal of P1000.
