As we told you last week, this FIP Star is an opportunity for Benjamin Tison to glean a first international title for the padel French male. Associated with Teodoro Zapata, the sixteenth-finalists from Miami will form the No. 6 pair of this tournament.
All this therefore indicates that there will be 5 higher ranked pairs that could end up on the path of Tison/Zapata.
Chance of the table, Ben Tison will compete against his teammate in the French team Maxime Moreau and his young compatriot Dylan Guichard. The two Frenchmen benefited from a wild-card to participate in this tournament. See you at 13 p.m. this Friday.
Victor Ruiz/José Rico, Raul Marcos/Javier Garcia, or even Del Castillo/Luque make this tournament even more prestigious by their level.
Spotlight on padel Egyptian

6 nationalities (Spain, France, Italy, Egypt, Qatar, United Kingdom), will be represented. The Russian player Vladimir Nifontov also intended to participate, but the war in his country put his career on hold.
