At Padel Attitude, the French 2016 padel championships have given very hot first matches! Back on the highlights of this first day.
In the ladies, favorites go quietly
No surprise and perhaps we should say absolute supremacy of the pairs of the south on that of the north.
In Pool A, the champions of France did not give much to the opposing pairs. Despite the defeat of the other southern pair (Ligue Côte d'Azur) Damiano / Berard on French 1 numbers, she seems very well to win the second place in this group.
In Pool B, we had a good match between the French 2 numbers Godard / Sorel (Côte d'Azur) vs Collombon / Ginier (Lyon). The first ones prevail in 2 sets (7 / 5 6 / 3) but not without difficulty. Lambregts / Rouquette inclines however against Lyon. The group's Lorraine women were brave but fell into a terrible group.
In Pool C, there was clearly a pair above, Lyonnaises Pironneau / Lovera and they did not make neighborhood. However, the battle is tough to get this famous second place and validate his ticket for the final table. In this game, it is the 4e at the championships of France 2015 that will fail. Rioja / Blankson Hemans will notably bow to Loriot / Plunian-Blot in 2 sets very hung ...
In Pool D, Meites / Vidal (Midi-Pyrénées) left only 3 little games to their opponents of the day. On the other hand Dalain / Nadal (Provence) had all the difficulties of the world not to be surprised vis-a-vis Kik / Sannelli (Flanders) (6 / 2 - 6 / 7 - 1 / 0 (8)).
In men, very close matches and the feat Lyon!
In Pool A, which is considered to be the hen of death with 3 pairs that have the level to finish in the top 4, there have been huge games. First the feat of Morillon / Bergeron against Ritz / Mannarino. At the end of a very tight match, the Lyonnais hit hard to find themselves 1er of the pool. With 1 lost to Boulade / Gauthier and Ritz / Manna, everything will be played tomorrow for the famous second place.
In Pool B, Carité / Lepanse had a very good match against Moreau / Bensadoun won at the super tie-break. Second place will be played between Authier / Lopes and Moreau / Bensadoun.
In Pool C, the French paddle champions do not make any details. Biegel / Trancart seems well placed to take second place.
Finally in Pool D, Lapouge / Veber proves that his result in the interregional phases was not a misunderstanding (with this victory against Ferrandez / Fouquet) going so far as to beat the 4e pair at the French championships 2015: Boissé / Devrand. For second place, everything will be played in the match Boissé / Devrand and Romanowski / Dulion.
