This is a victory that should feel good. Pushed to their limits by qualifiers Arruabarrena (64) and Polo (76), Alix Collombon and Julieta Bidahorria went for a mental victory in the first round of the Santiago Premier Padel P1.

Indeed, while they had lost the first set, the Lyonnaise and her partner fought hard to win the second set and get back on par with their opponents. Behind, the Franco-Argentinian pair imposed their experience in a final controlled act.

Collombon and Bidahorria finally won the match 4/6 7/5 6/2 after 3h06 of play and dismissed those who had beaten Carla Touly and Carla Fito the day before (6/1 6/2).

Thanks to this success, the last French representative and her partner qualify for the second round of the competition. They will face the winners of the match between Guinart / Martinez and Paula Josemaria and Ariana Sanchez, the world number 1s, on Friday!
