He is one of the players in form on the FIP Tour on the French side: Thomas Vanbauce made the best progress in the FIP ranking this week among the French Top 300!

The Big Player Padel jumped 18 ranks to land at 233rd in the world. This was made possible thanks to the performances of the FIP Rise of Nola where alongside Maxime Joris he notably beat a team of Spaniards ranked in the 80 best in the world, before continuing facing a pair of Italians who are among the outsiders in the table.

An extraordinary journey in Italy which ended in the semi-final, like at the FIP Rise in Dubai where the two men had already reached the last four. Results which gave them eleven points on two occasions, which represents around thirty places gained since the start of the season for Vanbauce. Maxime Joris also climbed the ranks with 51 places gained to become 310th in the world this week.
