First tournament of the year and already a first final for the French pair Manuel Vives and Julien Seurin at the FIP Rise Australian Open.

The number 1 seed is not wasting time in this tournament. Since the quarter-finals, Vives and Seurin have swept the competition with victories in two rounds.

During the quarters, it’s against the locals Taylor smith (954) et Ross taylor (564) that the tricolors won. Perfect victory, 6/0 6/4 and a place in the semi-finals at stake.

Later in the day, it's against Andrea Melisi (564) et T (447), seeded number 3 and fans of a certain Pat’ Rafter, which Julien Seurin and Manuel Vives imposed themselves. 6/2 7/5 and a place in the final for their first tournament of the 2024 season.

Manu and Julien are now expected on the slopes this Sunday to try to win the title. They will be opposed to the Spanish pair Sergi Guimet Bigas (480) et Nicolai Maniucov Maniucova (210), seeded 2.

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.
