On Australian soil, Julien Seurin and Manu Vives are on cloud nine. And for good reason, they chain together a 7e consecutive victory on the FIP Tour in Australia.
The French don't do lace in Melbourne and continue their good momentum. This time, the tournament favorites eliminated the locals in two short sets Damien Hall (1726) et Robert Gaylard (1259) 6 / 0 6 / 3.
Still no sets lost for Manu and Julien in Australia.
During the quarter-finals, the Seurin/Vives pair will once again face an Australian pair: Luke Morland (954) et Matthew Thomas (733)
For the tennis legend Patrick Rafter, the adventure ends there. After his great performance in the first round against the 5th seed, Tomita/Igarashi, Rafter and his partner Thomas lost in three sets to their compatriots Djurovik/Hamilton : 6/4 3/6 6/3.
The Australian adventure ends for the founding ambassador of Padel Australia. The former world number 1 in tennis will have marked these two FIP tournaments with his presence and his determination.
Perhaps we will have the chance to see him at other tournaments, somewhere other than Australia!
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.
