Marc Durieux and Antoine Melmiès win the magnificent Angers Open Padel this week-end.
An event she won without losing a set, and without being really worried.
Head of series 4 of the tournament, she will manage to spend ¼ and half halves without a hitch.
In this final of the Open Angers Padel, Durieux / Melmiès arrived motivated and the batteries fully charged.
The same can not be said of their opponents in the final.
Placed in a game of table certainly a little higher, the Parisian pair, Clément Oudart / Sylvain Gimenez will have to fight to create the feat and win his half against the seed of the tournament 1 No: Otherwise Boissé and Justin Garnier .
A huge semi-final from the 4 players. Oudart / Gimenez mainly used Justin Garnier who has not stopped being assaulted in this part. More than 2 hours of matches with marathons points. The pair that was going to win out mortgaged their chance in the final.
The Parisian pair wins and 3 sets ... But at what price!
Behind, in the final, Gimenez / Oudart delivers a very complicated game compared to his performance of the semi-finals. Blame it on aggressive and regular northerners, but also on a physical and mental breakdown.
Melmiès / Durieux asphyxiate Parisians already badly in point. Too fast, too regular, Marc and Antoine achieve a flawless and win in 2 sets their final (6 / 4 6 / 4).
Undeniably, we see the level that goes up. Or will we stop them? The pair Durieux / Melmiès was a gift to anyone and she showed it in this tournament.
Note the very good performance of two pairs qualified: the Nantes pair, Baptiste Marquez / Julien Couratin and the pair of Orleans Damien Duport and Simon Aurélien.
A special mention to the flawless organization of Christelle and Olivier Menier, the managers of the Padel Angers.
