This is a tournament that will not go down in the annals of the French FIP Tour delegation. Indeed, the only tricolor pair present in Saudi Arabia lost as soon as it entered the fray.

Despite their seed status 6, Arthur Hugounenq and Manu Vives fell in the first round of the FIP Rise in Riyadh.

The French lost a big battle against the Portuguese Caiano (490) and Meireles (1960). All the sets will have been successful, but ultimately it was the Lusitanian pair who were able to show themselves to be the strongest when it came time to conclude.

Final score 7/6 5/7 7/5 for Caiano and Meireles who qualify for the second round.

Return to the country for the French who will be able to rest this weekend. Arthur Hugounenq, registered with Pierre Vincent at Betclic Bordeaux P2, did not pass the cut qualifications. Manu Vives had to play him previous of the Girondin tournament with Jeremy Scatena but the latter being injured in the foot, the French pair withdrew.
