The new French pair, Fiona Ligi / Tiffany Phaysouphanh, on the FIP Tour, gets off to a great start at FIP Rise Tenerife. After a first victory against the other French pair Camille Sireix and Wendy Barsotti in 2 sets 7/5 6/4, Fiona and Tiffany put in a great performance to beat the 5th seed, Lopez / Sanz, 6/2 7 /5.
Next round in the quarter against Montaner / Miret Llorach (pair n°12), a pair supposed to be in the ropes of our French women after the great performances delivered in this tournament.
Fiona returns to this flawless performance for the moment:
“For Tiffany, this is the first FIP tournament with a primary objective of playing against the French. A first round where it works for us. Then, we played against the 5 seeds. We played against players we didn't know at all. In terms of sensations, we were very good since we won our 2th in 8 sets 7/5 6/2. Tomorrow in quarters at 11:30 a.m. (local time, or 12:30 p.m. in France), we play a player that I know well and who will be in my diagonal since it is Clara Miret. I know more or less how to approach it. It will be a discovery, however, for the player on the left. We are on a good dynamic and I think that can make the difference against the Spanish players who don’t know our game.”
