For the last matches of the French team in these padel world championships, France has rather unfolded against Germany. The two countries clashed for a place of honor at the 11e place of the world over 16 participating countries.

First atypical French pair since it was to play Scatena associated with Bensadoun in match 1. Interesting match, since we could see that Jérémy Scatena on the right, it was able to hurt a lot too. Laurent Bensadoun unfolded by limiting the mistakes. He has achieved a very good world including the one against Portugal that will remain in the heads. The French pair beats Germany on the score of 6 / 4 6 / 2.

In match 2, the pair Lapouge / Veber is once again associated. 4e at the French Championships padel a month ago, having already won their match against the US, she realizes a new match very correct, even if it has been more inconsistent in the game. Especially in the first set where Lapouge seems a bit tired of yesterday's match against Portugal. Difficult to start the game, Lapouge / Veber nevertheless wins the first set 7 / 6. Then, the match becomes easier thanks to a Lapouge returned to business, while the metronome Fabien Veber remained true to himself in "wall" mode from the beginning until the end of the match.

In 3 match, the Mannarino / Ritz pair finishes the job. Match without stake, since France leads 2 matches at 0, the match remained serious and more hooked than expected. The level is good. Germans do not want to go home on an 3 / 0. In the first set, it is played little, a small break at 5 everywhere and France validates his set. Same in the second set but this time, the Germans push the French to a tie-break. Despite a very tight set and long points, France eventually beat Germany on the final score of 7 / 5 7 / 6.

France is thus officially the 11e world nation. Is this a good result? Given the circumstances, probably even if she hoped much better. France has been particularly inefficient in their first group matches. She should have at least finish second of her hen in view of the hen said for some the most homogeneous to say the weakest. No seed, and no country such as Uruguay, Portugal or Brazil in Pool C of France. But she arrived 3e. Behind, she plays Portugal because 3e arrived in the death row. France did not go far from the feat but it was certainly before we had to react to avoid this situation.

France will have to go through the qualifying stage to try again in these paddle world team championships.
