Complicated day for French players FIP Rise Monaco, with the elimination of four of the six French representatives on the Monegasque tracks. Alone Dylan Guichard et Bastien Blanqué managed to qualify for the quarter-finals.

Fonteny/Boronad, one set away from the feat

Young people Timeo Fonteny et Yoan Boronad did not come far from the feat today, against the 6th seed: Jose Roman Martinez Sanchis (121) and Borja Yribarren Abecia (215).

In fact, the two French players won the first set of this meeting, during a decisive tie-break, thus beginning to thwart all predictions. Unfortunately, the two members of the French junior team were caught by their opponents in the next two sets.

Finally, Timéo and Yoan lost 7/6 2/6 2/6 with, despite everything, a lot of positive things to remember from this meeting.

Regrets for Thomas Vanbauce and Maxime Joris

Cruel defeat for Thomas Vanbauce and Maxime Joris against Teo Gamondi (306) / Rodrigo Coello Manso (237). The Bordelais did not come far from a quarter-final in Monaco.

Like their compatriots Boronad/Fonteny, Maxime and Thomas won the first set of the meeting, 6/4, showing themselves to be very lucid in the face of their opponents.

They too suffered the return of the opposing pair Gamondi/Coello. In the end, Thomas Vanbauce and Maxime lost in three sets: 6/4 1/6 4/6.

Bastien Blanqué and Dylan Guichard get through it

Bastien Blanqué et Dylan Guichard are the only ones to have escaped, ultimately, during this day of competition. They won in two sets against Daniele Catini (523) and Federico Galli (356), 6/3 6/4.

So they will play again tomorrow, in third rotation of the day, facing the 6th seed, Jose Roman Martinez Sanchis (121) and Borja Yribarren Abecia (215), Boronad/Fonteny slayers.

The matches start at 10:15 a.m., you will have to wait 12am-13pm (or even more) before seeing the last French people at work, to try to qualify for the semi-finals of this FIP Rise Monaco!

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.
