After his adventures Alicante FIP with Lucia Rosa Vadillo, Laura Buteau returns to the FIP Tour road this weekend with her training partner in Lisbon: the Portuguese n°20 Carina Filipa Costa.

Directly entering the main draw of the FIP Rise Rocks Lane in London, the Franco-Lusitanian pair are firmly awaiting the number 8 seed of the tournament: the Italians Martina Parmigiani and Erika Zanchetta.

A certain physical and mental battle is taking shape for the young Nantes player and her teammate against these two talented, eye-catching and punchy ex-tenniswomen.

The key: a modest opening of the table and a round of 8 against a pair from qualifying or not seeded!

So for a mini-feat from the first round and a new notable performance this season, good luck Laura (and Carina)!
