First day of competition for the French who traveled to Egypt for this FIP Rise Cairo. On the program for the day: the start of the main draw. Five French players will try to pocket their place for the second round of the tournament.

The first Frenchman to appear on stage today is Harold Bernard. Along with his partner Jose Angel Montoya, they have their work cut out for them. In fact, they will have to create a small feat facing Javier Rodriguez Marquez (150) and Diego Arredondo Garcia (349), seeded 4, if they want to qualify for the second round.

A little later in the day, we will see the 1st seed in action: Johan Bergeron et Maxime Moreau. They will meet a pair from the qualifications, Alexander Khalanskii (689) and Denis Merkulov (768).

Finally, later in the evening, Maxime Forcin and Dorian De Meyer will try to qualify for the second round. To do this, you will have to go through the local pair : Omar Maklouf (537) and Ahmed Alaa Marzouk (443).

The meetings start at 15 hours : Harold Bernard will play at this time. The Bergeron/Moreau pair will play in the second rotation of the afternoon, around 16h-16h30. For Forcin and De Meyer, we will have to wait for the second rotation of the evening, around 20h30-21h.

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.
