A week after their second round reached in Brussels, Alix Collombon et Julieta Bidahorria have the opportunity to reproduce this effort at P2 in Seville.

Valiant adversaries

The Frenchwoman and her Argentinian partner inherited a team from qualifying in Andalusia. They will face the Spanish Lara Arruabarrena, former 52nd world tennis player, and the Italian Carlotta Casali, respectively 61st and 53rd in the FIP ranking.

Both players had to work hard to get their ticket to the final draw. Seed number four for the Previas, they first made a comeback at the expense of Ribeiro/Arellano (1/6 – 7/6 – 6/3), before repeating the feat today against the Transalpines Stellato/Petrelli (6/7 – 6/3 – 6/4).

Dreaming of a rematch against Brea/Gonzalez?

Alix Collombon and Julieta Bidahorria have been warned: even if their opponents will certainly be physically worn out, they are full of confidence and will not give up. In the event of victory, the Franco-Argentinian pair could cross swords with Sofia Araujo et Virginia Riera (TS7) in the second round, before potentially falling back on Delfi Brea et Bea Gonzalez, titled in Brussels.

You will be able to watch the first round of Collombon and Bidahorria tomorrow in the sixth rotation from 9 a.m. on Court 2 of the Cartuja stadium, broadcast on the Youtube channel of Premier Padel.
