For these first European team padel championships for a large part of the group, it is a great success.
On 6 matches played (3 in the ladies, 3 in the men), 5 resulted in a victory.
A complicated first match
If Line Meites and Emmeline Lambregth have perfectly mastered the first game of the day in the ladies with the 6 / 0 6 / 1, Robin Haziza and Jeremy Scatena opened the ball at the Gentlemen.
The beginning is strange. We feel a little nervousness in both men. The Italian pair is complicated to play but it is the French who play backwards.
Alexis Salles, captain of the team Gentlemen, puts them in the right way. The French team finally wins 6 / 7 6 / 3 6 / 1
The other French teams have overall been better than their opponents in all respects.
Only small grain of sand
The defeat of Simon Boissé and Jerome Ferrandez is a pity, but has no consequences on the rest of the adventure.
Faced with a very solid Italian pair and a particularly slow game, the French pair offered only a relative resistance with many direct mistakes to the key and a defeat (6 / 1 6 / 2)
In the end, she could not find her rhythm to make this Italian team doubt.
A very positive assessment
Continuation of the adventure for women tomorrow. The men will play again on Friday.
Sandrine Testud, package?
A priori, Sandrine Testud captain and player of the Italian team had to withdraw in his match against the Swedish team. In spite of this package, Italy continues its route and will meet France tomorrow.
