Unfortunately, there will be no coronation for Wendy Barsotti and her partner Catarina Castro Vilela, beaten in the final at FIP Rise Dubai. The Franco-Portuguese pair was beaten in two sets by Lucia Perez (94) and Laura Lujan (126): 6/4 6/2.

The step was too high for the Barsotti/Castro Vilela pair today in Dubai, facing the number 1 seed of this FIP Rise. Wendy and Catarina had already been badly shaken during their semi-final, against the Germans Hoefer/Kurz. They also had to save two match points in the third set.

Despite nice exchanges, Wendy and Catarina committed too many mistakes in this meeting, costing them the break many times.

Wendy Barsotti and her partner will still be able to be satisfied with a good level of play throughout this tournament, which allowed them to reach this final!

Next deadline for the French player: FIP Rise Rocks Lane, March 27-31 !

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.
