The French players will have held on until the end in this meeting against Mexico for the 5th place of the world championships. New defeat 2-1, this time against the Mexicans, in a final match which will have been decided on a last point in the tie-break of the third set.

The blue started this meeting badly, with a defeat in the U14 match, 6/4 6/0 in less than an hour of play.

Kimy and Lou, who continue to shine in these worlds, continued their momentum during the second match of the day. They put the tricolors back in the race, winning 6/2 7/6 in 1h02 of play.

All French hopes rested on the shoulders of Psonka/Bahurel. Getting off to a bad start in the match, losing the first set 6/4, they managed to get back into the match by winning the second set 6/3.

This decisive match and this third set could not end otherwise than with a decisive game... ultimately won 7/4 by the Mexicans.

The French women therefore finished 6th in these world championships and can congratulate themselves on their good performance in Paraguay. France is therefore 6th nation among girls and 5th in boys !

It was his brother who one day told him to accompany him on a track. padel, since then, Gwenaëlle has never left the court. Except when it comes to going to watch the broadcast of Padel Magazine, World Padel Tour… or Premier Padel…or the French Championships. In short, she is a fan of this sport.
