Alix, First French Player to Reach Quarter Finals at WPT

DELEN
Alix Collombon Padel

The monopoly (or oligopoly) has been broken. For years you would only see players representing two flags on the quarter finals of the professional padel circuits: Argentines and Spanish.  Later, with the rise of Pablo Lima, we saw a Brazilian.

Yesterday was a great day for the development of international Padel. For the first time, a French born padel player reached quarter final of a World Padel Tour tournament. At the Estrella de Levante Murcia Open 2018, playing for the round of 16, Alix Collombon, partnering with Sara Pujals, defeated Marta Talavan and Araceli Martin 5-7 6-2 6-2.  During the round of 32, they defeated Raquel Aguilar and Nuria Rovira 6-3 7-5.  No. 1 ranked team, the super twins Maria Jose Alayetto and Maria Pilar Alayeto, await for them at the quarterfinals.
