Third French player to enter the Bordeaux track today, Thomas Leygue, faced Maxi Sanchez et sanyo gutierrez with his partner Aris Patiniotis. A first round far from easy for the French number 1 and his teammate who met the 4 seed of this Bordeaux P2.

Very complicated match for the Leygue / Patiniotis pair who took lightning in the first set, won within minutes 30 game by Sanyo and Maxi: 6/0. Thomas and Aris simply did not have the weapons to compete against two former world number 1s, widely favorites in this meeting.

The second set, moreover, started just as badly for the Franco-Italian pair, who conceded an entry break. We feared for a time that the match was going to be hasty. However, Thomas Leygue and Aris Patiniotis managed to find their feet in the second set.

Getting back into the match little by little, the Leygue / Patiniotis pair succeeded to create a small sensation by breaking to return to 4/4 in the second round. Thomas and Aris were even able to push the 4 seed to the decisive tie-break.

The start of this tie-break was tight but the favorites of the match ended up making their experience speak for themselves when necessary.

Despite a burst of pride on a magnificent counter smash from Thomas, Maxi Sanchez and Sanyo Gutierrez avoided a potentially dangerous third set and finished the job. Final score: 6/0 7/6 (4).

Continuation of “french day” on the center of the Arkea Arena with the entry into the running of Dylan Guichard et Bastien Blanqué!

It was his brother who one day told him to accompany him on a track. padel, since then, Gwenaëlle has never left the court. Except when it comes to going to watch the broadcast of Padel Magazine, World Padel Tour… or Premier Padel…or the French Championships. In short, she is a fan of this sport.
