At the Challenger World Padel Tour in Lisbon, we celebrated a great first, a French 100 showdown on the professional paddle circuit.

Much more than just a game, it was a first confrontation between two of the three best French pairs: Bastien Blanqué / Johan Bergeron vs. Robin Haziza / Jérémy Scatena.

In 2018, these two pairs had not yet clashed yet.

It's done. And the French champions padel 2017 wins this first duel in 3 sets:

5-7 / 7-6 / 6-1

Bergeron / Blanqué will play his second pre-qualifying match tomorrow at 10h against David Antolín Solla / Mario Lozano Encinas.

A match where the pair Haziza / Scatena could have yet win this match in 2 sets. But she will eventually lose it at the tie-break.

Remember that another French is racing in Lisbon: Maxime Moreau. He plays tonight with the Spanish Borja Lopez Vidal against the pair Fabricio Cattaneo / Jesús Moya Sos
