It is also the end for Benjamin Tison and his partner Aitor Garcia, released in two sets by the number 1 seed Javier Martinez and Enrique Goenaga. The opposition lasted only one set in this second semi-final of the day. A fairly tight first set, before the Goenaga/Martinez pair unfolds in the second round. In just 45 minutes, Ben Tison and Aitor Garcia lost 4/6 0/6.

There are no more French people competing in this FIP Rise Bourg-en-Bresse, with the defeat in three sets, after a big fight, by Dylan Guichard and Bastien Blanqué.

All it took was one game...

The debates were fairly balanced in the first set of this second semi-final. Both teams hold their service game without great difficulty and we even envisage a close match. Ben Tison and Aitor Garcia are at the event.

And it only takes one slightly less good game from the Franco-Spanish pair for everything to change. Several mistakes from Ben and Aitor offer the first break opportunities to Goenaga and Martinez, who were not asking for so much. The station wagon in your pocket, Javier Martinez and Enrique Goenaga just have to tighten the screws in this first set.

…and everything goes downhill

The second set was one-way in Ain. Benjamin Tison and Aitor Garcia can do absolutely nothing against the two Spaniards who produce their best padel. The games follow one another and, without a solution, the Franco-Spanish pair only endures the game.

It will take less than twenty minutes in this second set for Enrique Goenaga and Javier Martinez to secure the last ticket to the finals. In the post-match interview, the Spaniards congratulate themselves on their level of play.


A defeat with an aftertaste of bitterness

On their side, Benjamin Tison and Aitor Garcia have a completely different discourse. Aitor Garcia and Ben Tison are unanimous: “we played very badly“. Lots of frustration from the two players who had no solution in this meeting.

"I am especially disgusted because I would have liked to do much more for the public and the event“, testifies Ben. “Missing a match like that hurts“, he concludes. Despite everything, Aitor and Benjamin will have had a very good tournament.

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.
