Top start of qualifying Malaga Premier Padel P1 with in the running five French people, including two 100% French pairs. Unfortunately, no Frenchman will advance to the second round of qualifying.

Max Moreau and Johan Bergeron faced the number 5 seed of the previas, the Spanish pair composed of Carlos Marti and Jose Luis Gonzalez. They were defeated in two sets, 6/3 6/2.

The pair Bastien Blanqué / Dylan Guichard also suffered a heavy defeat in two sets, 6/1 6/0, against the number 6 seed of the previas, Aitor Garcia and Miguel Angel Sorbes. A match to forget for the French pair.

Finally, Thomas Leygue and Roger Aromi narrowly lost to the Spanish pair Jesus Moya / Pedro Vera in three sets, 6/4 4/6 6/4. As the Frenchman told us, he is looking for “consistency” with a partner. It is perhaps this lack of consistency which cost them the match today, which was narrow. Remember that Roger Aromi is well known in France for having been the partner of another French player, Jérémy Scatena.

As for the men's draw, it's already over for the men in Malaga. Only Léa Godallier will represent the French colors. She will be associated in the main draw with the Italian Giorgia Marchetti. Remember that Alix Collombon will fly to Mexico on the sidelines of the tournament in Malaga.

This day was nevertheless special for Silingo who perhaps played his last match on the professional circuit in Malaga.

Agustin Silingo and Gustavo Nunes lose to the Deux brothers, 6/1 6/0. A cruel defeat if it was their last match, but what longevity for Silingo who will have left his mark on this sport.
