Marie-Amélie Dardaine and Tiffany Phaysouphanh emerged victorious in a spectacular three-set match against Wendy Barsotti and Élodie Invernon.
In the first set, Marie-Amélie and Tiffany were down 5/3 before coming back to 5 all, and they got two balls to take the lead at 6/5. However, Wendy and Élodie saved these balls and won this first set 7/5. A match which lasted 2h30, including a last set which itself lasted more than an hour.
In the second set, Dardaine and Phaysouphanh were again behind by a break, 4/1. It was the moment for them to string together five consecutive games to equalize at one set everywhere, 6/4.
Like two weeks ago, we saw a third set between these two pairs. But this time, the match was not interrupted due to injury. The set was played in a tie-break. Marie-Amélie and Tiffany led 5/3 and had six match points. However, Wendy and Élodie came back at 5 all, leading the set to a tie-break which Dardaine/Phaysouphanh won, this time on their first match point. (7/4)
Next stop, the semi-final, around 15:15 p.m. in 2nd rotation: Dardaine/Phaysouphanh (TS3) vs Ginier/Pothier (TS2).
This confrontation is unprecedented, although, individually, Marie-Amélie (with Marie Boura) and Tiffany (with Mai Vo) lost last year against Lucile and Jessica.
