Thomas Leygue et Alvaro Montiel did not wait long to take their revenge in the first round of qualifying for the P1 in Mar del Plata this Saturday evening.

Thomas Leygue, last Frenchman in Mar del Plata

During the same poster as last week in Asunción, the French number one and the Spaniard this time got the better of the French Dylan Guichard et Bastien Blanqué : 6/2 – 7/5 in 1 hour. The Franco-Iberian pair were aggressive from the start of the match and were able to take advantage of the inconsistency of their opponents in their service games.

Well helped by the five breaks achieved in the game, Thomas Leygue and Alvaro Montiel qualify for the second round of previas where they will have a good card to play against the Spaniards Alonso Rodriguez et Daniel Santigosa.

Moreau/Bergeron defeated on the wire

At the bottom of the blackboard, Max Moreau et Johan Bergeron will not see the rest of the qualifiers in Argentina. Facing the Italian Emiliano Iriart and the Spanish Marcos Cordoba (TS8), the Blues have long believed in an achievement, especially after having equalized with one set all in the tie break. However, they finally cracked after 2h23 of a tough fight: 7/5 – 6/7 – 6/3.

Tomorrow, Carla Toully will open the ball alongside Carla Fito Fernandez on Center Court against the favorites of the previas Thomas Leygue and Alvaro Montiel will try to obtain their ticket for the main draw on Court 2 in the fourth rotation.
