Far from the glitter of Premier Padel GNP Mexico P1, six French people will play the quarter-finals of the FIP Rise in Dubai this Friday evening.

We knew that there would be at least three Frenchmen in the quarters of the competition since the French faced each other in the eighth. Among the girls, the Franco-Italian pair Sireix / Ligotti (TS6) crushed the duo Vandaele / Merah. Final score 6/0 6/2. Camille and Francesca will have a big match to play tonight against seed 1 Perez / Lujan.

It also went smoothly for the Franco-Portuguese pair Barsotti / Castro (TS2) who won 6/2 6/0 against Andrade / Gomez. Wendy and her partner will face the Lopez / Neizvestnaya duo from 18:00 p.m. French time. A match to follow below:


Among the men, a little sensation with the convincing victory of Joris / Vanbauce against the 2nd seed in the competition, Vives / Inzerillo: 6/2 6/3! We will inevitably have a French pair in the last four, since Thomas and Maxime face Philémon Raichman and Julien Seurin in the next round. The latter also won in two sets against qualifiers Orloff and Lopez Muñoz (6/2 7/6). The match between French people will be followed on the Julien Seurin's YouTube channel.

Unsurprisingly, Sichez and Martelli lost to the Portuguese Araujo and Deus.
