The final outcome finally took place in Reunion where, despite capricious weather, the P1000 of Kaz A Padel was able to end in style with a hooked finale.

In addition, these are the two premises of this final, Alex Pichon from Bury et Paul-Henri Teyssedre (TS3) who won, after a very good fight against Wagner/Moura (TS2).

Pichon de Bury/Teyssedre, in complete serenity

Carried by a public totally committed to their cause and in a fiery atmosphere, the two Reunion Islanders started the meeting perfectly and took advantage of the numerous opposing faults to lead without difficulty in the first set.

Not entering the game well enough, the Metropolis players, Simon Wagner and Baptiste Moura, conceded the first round quite heavily: 6/2.

Five match points saved by Wagner/Moura

In the second round, the expected fight took place. The debates were balanced but the locals made the break at the best moment, at 4/3 for them. In the next game, they even managed to get two match points at 40/15, but the Wagner/Moura pair managed to tighten the game and come back from very far away.

We then felt that the dynamics of the match had changed a little. After three tight games where each team managed to keep their commitment, the two pairs eventually found themselves in a tie-break.

The Reunionese started this decisive game better and took the lead from the start, but Wagner / Moura, once again, came back to score. In a hand to hand terrible and despite three new match balls for the locals, the 2nd seed ended up winning the set 7/6 (13 points to 11).

The locals, at the end of the suspense!

We thought they were reached after the loss of the second set but against all odds, the Reunion Islanders managed to maintain a very good level of play. Not really disturbed by the five unconverted match points, also, the locals of the competition maneuvered perfectly their boat in a slightly more disjointed final act.

At the end of an incredible finale, Pichon de Bury and Teyssedre, after dominating the number 1 seed in the tournament, did it again against the number 2 pair in the tournament and won the title at home, in Reunion: 6/2 6/7 6/3.

It was his brother who one day told him to accompany him on a track. padel, since then, Gwenaëlle has never left the court. Except when it comes to going to watch the broadcast of Padel Magazine, World Padel Tour… or Premier Padel…or the French Championships. In short, she is a fan of this sport.
