It was written: The 10th edition of the French Open of padel was a huge success and saw the reigning French champions and Argentinian champions lift the Dominique Baudis cup. Back to these finals and surprises ...
Laura Clergue and Audrey Casanova still on top
In France, the French champions of padel and European champion of padel by team leave nothing but crumbs for their opponents. For the women, in the final, it was therefore the great classic: Géraldine Sorel / Sandy Godard Vs Laura Clergue and Audrey Casanova.
Sorel / Godard, the pair vice-champion of France, always in ambush, a dangerous and regular pair but who most often stuck face the French numbers 1. This was the case this Sunday losing in 2 sets 6 / 2 6 / 3.
It must be said that everything seemed to lock. Audrey Casanova offered very few opportunities in her diagonal while Laura Clergue hit hard.

Argentina 3 - France 0 for men
There was only one Argentine pair in the male table. But the Lara / Capitani pair has been above everyone else.
In the final, Ritz / Moreau came out of a very tough match against the French champions Scatena / Haziza won the super tie-break 12-10. An exploit that calls others when we see these two players in the field.
2 hours later, it was necessary to put the cover, in the final against the big favorites of the tournament: Lara / Capitani. Despite a serious match, the level difference was too great in this final and hope to see the Argentine pair beaten. Especially since they did not lose a set during the entire tournament and it was displayed on this very fresh final with an average of 4 games lost per game.
The pair Fouquet / Ferrandez, however, delivered a big game against the Argentine quarter-final. A special mention for the pair Biegel / Salles who resisted well against the Argentine half.

The match of the tournament: Moreau / Rtiz Vs Scatena / Haziza
This is definitely the match of the tournament with a match that ended in a super tie-break and incredible suspense. The French champions of padel were the favorites in the high part of the tournament to reach the final especially after the abandonment of the Spanish pair, junior world champion, Eric Ginel / David Quiroz. But that was without counting a huge Jérémy Rtiz, the team's watchmaker and a Maxime Moreau with genius shots. The match will soon be live on the Youtube channel of padel Magazine
