Bastien Blanqué and Dylan Guichard did not win this final of the FIP Rise Monaco, eliminated by the Spanish pair, the 5th seed, Daniel Santigosa Sastre / Guillermo Collado Losada, who created a surprise during this tournament.

The Spanish pair, in an underdog position against the French duo, qualified for the final after a fierce battle in the semi-final and then in the final.

Blanqué and Guichard delivered very good performances throughout the tournament, having not lost a set before this decisive final.

However, it was the Spaniards who won the first set 6/4, before the French equalized at one set all. In the third set, the Spanish pair had an excellent end to the match to win in three sets: 6/4 4/6 6/1.

Despite the defeat, Guichard and Blanqué can be proud of their journey. Their fine performances offer a positive outlook for the rest of the season.
