It's the turn of the French players to make their debut on the track, in Qatar, after a nightmare day for men, yesterday, in Doha.

Three French women will make their debut on the court: Wendy Barsotti, Carla Toully et Elodie Invernon. As a reminder, two French women will already be in the main draw of this tournament: Alix Collombon, French number 1, will evolve alongside his former partner, Jessica Ginier.

Carla, Élodie and Wendy will try to join their compatriots in the final table, starting today, during the first round of qualifying. The matches will start at 13h, local time (11 a.m. for France), with Carla Touly and her partner Margarida Fernandes (117).

A big match from the outset awaits the Franco-Portuguese pair since the two players will play, from the outset, the Dutch Marcella Koek (91) and Stephanie Weterings (91), forming the number 4 seed of these qualifications.

It will be necessary to wait the third rotation of the day to see the two other French women, Wendy Barsotti and Élodie Invernon.

On court 1, Élodie and her Portuguese teammate, Catarina Santos (123) will have a hard time facing the pair 100% María Castañera Hernández (89) and Mireia Herrada Ruiz (81), seeded number 2 in this table !

Finally, Wendy Barsotti, who will play on court 2 with the Dutch Rosalie Van Der Hoek (127), will also have to pass a very tough Spanish pair. The Barsotti/Van Der Hoek pair will be opposed to Carla Castillo Velarde (104) and Lucia Peralta Exposito (97). Certainly, this pair is not seeded, but it is still the 7e pair of this painting…

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.
