The P500 Mouans-Sartoux Open has booked beautiful surprises and huge games with the victory at the ladies of Casanova / Meites and the local pair Moreau / Fouquet in the men.
Casanova / Meites in good shape
On the ladies' side, the two big favorite pairs logically found themselves in the final.
After their little rout at the stage of My Padel Tour Padel Club (In the Paris region), the pair composed of Audrey Casanova and Line Meites managed a very nice tournament by winning the final that opposed him to the one of the best French pairs: Godard / Sorel in two sets: 6 / 4 6 / 4.
The pair Fouquet / Moreau above
If they were clearly announced as being among the favorites of the tournament, we thought especially of the pair Tello / Pastor, team including a World Padel Tour player, the Argentinian Tello who had almost defeated a year ago ( alongside Chingotto), the 2e world pair Sanyo / Paquito.
But in the semifinals, the big favorites had to bow to the 3 sets against a pair that we would not necessarily necessarily despite their great strength: Corbelli / Pequery (6 / 3 2 / 6 1 / 0). The French pair made a crazy tournament by first getting out of the quarterfinal trap against Boronas / Cubilier (3 / 6 6 / 3 1 / 0). For again, he will have to fight in this final ...
On the other hand, the pair Moreau / Fouquet made life simpler before reaching the final. In half, Facing the Maigret brothers, recent finalists of the P1000 Bois d'Arcy, we expected big game very hung . But northerners fall on a wall. This specialist pair of indoor paddle is also found to play a match in outdoor with wind. She has clearly lost her means. Faced with Moreau / Fouquet, it did not happen.
Moreau / Fouquet thus approached the final with the batteries well charged.
It was a grand finale. But after 2 sets very tight (7 / 5 5 / 7), Corbelli / Pequery explodes physically while the pair Moreau / Fouquet realizes the perfect match.
Kevin Fouquet surprises
A special mention for Kevin Fouquet who managed to foil all his opponents with a game "padel" against tennis players with a game often faster. We hope to see him more often on the circuit because he regaled and shows that very good tennis players can find themselves alone in front of a game licked like that of Kevin Fouquet and an iron defense.
It should be noted that Audrey Casanova and Maxime Moreau make a double this weekend after a victory at the club padel Lorguais.
