Alix Collombon and Lorena Rufo recovered from a bad situation against Victoria Iglesias and Claudia Fernandez this Wednesday in the round of XNUMX of the WPT Malmo Open.
In this clash between pairs 10 and 13 on the circuit, we expected a great battle, and we got it! Indeed, it took a little over two hours of play and three sets for the Franco-Spanish pair to win in this first round.
Manhandled in the first set (1/6), the Lyonnaise and her partner were able to start the second set on a low note to return to a tie (6/4). Dominant in the third act, the Franco-Spanish pair saw their opponents come back to score at the worst moment but were able to put in one last push to leave with victory.
Final score 1/6 6/4 6/4 in favor of Collombon and Rufo who qualify for the round of XNUMX. Alix will certainly be delighted with this success against her former partner Victoria Iglesias, who left her for Claudia Fernandez. A great revenge for the six-time French Champion!
Tomorrow, it is against Delfi Brea and Bea Gonzalez (TS3) that Collombon and Rufo will try to create a surprise in Sweden!
