Léa Godallier and Teresa Navarro lost in the round of XNUMX of the World Padel Tour Danish Open against Patty Llaguno and Virginia Riera, but the Frenchwoman and her partner have still shaken up the seeded 3 of the tournament.
Indeed, for their entry into the competition, the finalists of the last Brussels Open perhaps did not think they would suffer so much against the native of Papeete and her partner. Favorites on paper, the players of Juanma Rodriguez had to fight nearly two hours to get out of the trap that their tender Léa and Teresa wanted.
The first set was hotly contested, with many decisive points. Quite logically, it took a tie-break to decide between the two pairs, and in this little game it was the experience of Llaguno and Riera that made the difference.
Not dejected by the loss of the first set, the Frenchwoman and her partner returned to the second act entry coal. Imposing their rhythm, they led 4/0 and we thought we were heading for a third set. But that was without counting on the tenacity of Patty and Virginia, who were able to take advantage of a few opposing errors to gradually get back into the game. The success had left the Franco-Spanish camp and the favorites finally won the final victory thanks to six games won consecutively: 7/6 6/4. Some regrets necessarily for Godallier and Navarro who deserved a little better in this match. In any case, they will have given us some very nice points, like the one you can see just below:
Despite the defeat, Léa and Teresa will have had a great tournament, with a victory against Amatriain/Navarro and a great fight against one of the best pairs on the circuit. A good omen for the future!
