It's simply unheard of! We will have three French this Saturday afternoon in the semi-final of Milan FIP Gold.

Always in great shape, Alix Collombon and Jessica Castello made short work of Julia Polo (58) and Alicia Blanco (62): 6/2 6/0. The tournament favorites are leaving very few games behind and they will be in great shape this afternoon in the semi-finals. It will be either against Caro (43) / Cortiles (36), or against Guinart (53) / Rodriguez (57).

In the other semi-final, there will also be a Frenchwoman since Léa Godallier and Ariadna Cañellas also did the job against Caparros (60) / De Osso (52). A 6/3 6/3 victory for the Franco-Spanish duo which is also at the rendezvous of the semi-finals, it will be either against Las Heras (27) / Virseda (28), or against Marchetti (83) / Pappacena (59).

The big surprise of the day is the victory of Benjamin Tison and Teo Zapata against the seeded 4, Zaratiegui (46) / Martinez (44). The French and the Spaniard confirm that they are playing very well together, with this victory against two Top 50 players, and in two sets please: 7/6 6/2. A big performance that allows them to face another big team this afternoon, the seeded 2, Arroyo (48) / Ramirez (29)!

The three Franco-Spanish pairs will play in a row this afternoon on the central track. We'll start with the girls with Alix and Jessica's match, 16h !
