Review of the French adventure at the World Padel Tour of Barcelona.
Our French 1 numbers in combat
In men, the competition is very tough. We will have to play and train with the best to be able to go further in the qualifying tables and access the final table. Jérémy Scatena and Robin Haziza, the spearheads of the French paddle did not wait for this defeat to make stays in Spain, the Mecca of the padel world, to compete and compete against the best.
Against Miguel Gonzalez Garcia / Roberto Rodriguez Alonso, Jeremy Scatena / Robin Haziza had to bow to the 2 sets, but here too the potential is important. Recall that they fell in front of a pair that will have lost the 3th round qualifications in 3 sets against against Solbes / Ramos (TOP 50 world pair).
Beautiful achievement for girls
This is a first French side since history will remember that the first French to have won a qualifying round at a World Padel Tour are none other than the champions of France title Laura Clergue and Audrey Casanova. This match was won earlier in the day against Ingrid Van Boven (PB) / Paula Manchón Zugasti (ESP 120) on the 6-7 6-2 6-3 score.
Against Andre de los Santos (ARG N ° 54) / Tere Anillo (ESP N ° 56) the march was too high for our French. "But they were not dropped. On the contrary, and it's very encouraging". They lose in 2 sets but on the score of 6 / 3 6 / 3, score quite honorable.
If it remains certainly "a step up for girls"To go further in the qualifying table and reach the finals, they showed"a big potential and a big desire"
When we know that this pair only plays together since 1 year and a half. What a road traveled.
Congratulations to the team of France and it's only beginning.
