Alix Collombon and Lorena Rufo entered the competition this Tuesday at the World Padel Tour Madrid Master.
Facing the 2nd seed Ortega/Triay, the Franco-Spanish pair knew they were doomed to the feat at the Caja Magica.
And if Alix and Lorena had very good moments – notably with five break points obtained (including three converted) – they were generally never able to really put them on the scoreboard, the numbers 2 accelerating each time he had to.
Final score 6/3 6/3 for Martita and Gemma who won 60% of the points and took their opponents' service six times (out of ten opportunities). They will meet Marta Caparros and Teresa Navarro on Thursday, who dominated the young Arruabarrena and Fernandez in two sets: 6/4 6/2.
For Collombon and Rufo it is therefore (already) the end of this Madrid stage. The Lyonnaise and her partner, who had clearly not been spoiled in the draw, will inevitably be a little frustrated, they who arrived with confidence after having reached the quarter-finals at Roland-Garros. They obviously hope to have an easier match to play next week in Germany, at the WPT German Padel Open.
From now on all French hopes in this Madrid Master rest on Léa Godallier, who starts tomorrow with her partner Eli Amatriain against Ana Catarina Nogueira and Bea Caldera.
