The top 3 pairs present
Among the ladies, we will find a new pair as seeded 1 of the tournament, Elode Invernon and Lucile Pothier, Jessica Ginier not being able to be present for this last P2000 of the year.
Marie-Amélie Dardaine and Charlotte Soubrié will be seeded 2 in the event followed by Fiona Ligi and TIffany Phaysouphanh.
Marie Lefevre / Mélanie Ros and Alexise Duchene / Charline Tonda will be in ambush.
On the men's side, we will also find an “almost” new pair, Adrien Maigret and Johan Bergeron, an association which worked very well last year at PadelShot Saint Etienne. We then find Authier / Vincent, finalist of the last P1500 in Esprit Padel and Rouanet / Sanchez, keen to achieve a good result in Strasbourg.
We will also find the winners of the Open Esprit Padel by UFF, Maxime Joris and Philémon Raichman, who will try to renew their very good performance.
We will also find another new association: Thomas Mitjana associated with one of the dinosaurs of the padel French, Jérémy Ritz (Pair 18).
Hanouna associated with Joseda Sanchez
And, once again, one of the pairs that will certainly attract attention at 4Padel Strasbourg, it's Cyril Hanouna (n°86th in the FFT ranking) who will be associated this time with José David Sanchez Serrano alias Joseda Sanchez, Spanish player ranked 67th in the ranking of World Padel Tour. The latter had also achieved a feat by winning a record and not the least.
