Two tricolor pairs were still in the running in the FIP Rise Burriana, during the round of 16. Check out the results.

Men: Thomas Leygue, the last survivor

The adventure ends here for Bastien Blanqué and Dylan Guichard. Coming up against Jose Martinez and Alberto Garcia, the two sidekicks snatched the second set in the tie-break, before collapsing in the last round. They bow 4/6 – 7/6 (5) – 1/6.

The last Frenchman in the running is therefore Thomas Leygue, following the double package of Moreau/De Meyer and Arredondo/Martinez. Alongside his partner Alvaro Montiel Caruso, the French number 1 will face the winners of the match Mouriño/Mouriño against Collado/Santigosa. With, at stake, a place in the last four.

Women: it goes for Touly/Ginier

Carla Touly and Jessica Ginier battled to snatch their place in the next round. The two French women dismissed the Italians Caterina Baldi and Guilia Dal Pozzo (6/1 – 4/6 – 6/3) and will have a good quarter against Perez/Garcia, the number 4 seed.

The rest of the tournament resumes tomorrow in Iberian lands...
