During the Head Padel P250 Tennis Open / Padel Club de Marseille (TCM) le week-end dernier, le club a montré qu’il était selon lui “small in size but large in plateau level". A beautiful plateau: that's obvious.
Padel despite the rain!
It was necessary to be brave and certainly a little drugged by this sport to play in the rain. After a qualifying weekend disturbed by the rain or the players showed a good spirit, the survivors faced last weekend the seeded from 1 / 8 finals.
Boulade / Authier winners but on the wire
In the men the hierarchy was respected but heckled except for the pair David / Grandmont falling after a 1 / 4 finals over 2h30 playing after 3 tie-break against Leandri / Launo.
Note a complicated entry for Boulade / Authier 1 seed head to battle 3 sets to get rid of local Cayla / Henriot. Cayla / Henriot, a pair who definitely lacks luck in his draw after the tournament in Aix-en-Provence.
The final was between 1 and Salles / Gauthier. An explosive final with a very beautiful game but leaving the victory to the youth, Authier / Boulade winning 6 / 4 6 / 4.
The 3me place returning to Leandri / launo on Sidbon / Darnal.
Casanova and Sorel TCM Champions
In the girls it is from the semi-finals that business is complicated, Nadal / Dalain facing Vo / Damiano and the other half Pibis / Rouquette played against the 2 members of the France team Sorel / Casanova.
And there too no surprise in both games, the final will see the number 1 number 6 / 4 7 / 5 over Damiano / Vo in a very tight game. The 3 place is for the local team Dalain / Nadal.
Note the return of Mai Vo who had a little disappeared radar after a long injury. The pair Damiano / Vo is to watch closely.
