Le padel French has a bright future ahead of it. And for good reason, French youth shone during the P1500 4Padel Bordeaux . Indeed, Timeo Fonteny (almost 17 years old) and Louise Bahurel (17 years old) managed to reach the final of this tournament. Louise Bahurel, associated with Camille Sireix, was even able to leave Gironde with title in pocket.

The meteoric rise of Louise Bahurel

Louise Bahurel continues to improve and still has enormous room for improvement. At almost 18 years old, she is heading to the 9th place in France. In November 2023, Louise had even reached her highest ranking, reaching 7th place. In two years, the young player managed to perform the greatest progression in the women's ranking, by earning more than 250 seats.

Bahurel is already a player of the French U18 team and she was present during the Worlds in Paraguay. In May this year, she will be 18 years old and will therefore no longer be able to represent this category. On the other hand, if we take into account his ranking and his latest tournament results, we say to ourselves that a place in the senior French team is not unthinkable.

Timéo Fonteny, the revelation

For his part, Timéo Fonteny, new player Nox, shows very good progress and this final in P1500, alongside Quentin Ayuso, is proof of this. Indeed, the pair seeded number 7 managed to come out Nicolas Rouanet et Norman Sanchez (TS2) in the semi-final. A victory in two rounds, 6/2 6/4, which proves that the young player from Mas is capable of holding his own to the best French people.

Today, Timéo points to 38th rank in the FFT ranking. With this final, it is possible that he could grab a few extra places. Little by little, the young player is getting closer to his goal, French Top 10, which he had established with his usual partner, Yoan Boronad. If he continues his progress, Timéo will soon be one of the must-sees in France!
