Most important moments

In the men’s and women’s singles draws, the round of 16 took place at the end of the morning with two enticing shocks scheduled at the same time. Among the gentlemen, Félix Lebrun was opposed to Can Akkuzu. He managed his game to perfection to win with authority, 4 sets to nil.

The other shock could very well have taken place in the semi-finals as the level was raised between two players who aspired to play this Sunday. Camille Lutz found Océane Guisnel and it was the latter who won in 7 rounds! A tense encounter until the last set (11-9) when Camille Lutz nevertheless led 3 sets to 2. The player from Poitiers was able to turn the tide to reach the quarter-finals.

Still with the ladies, Charlotte Lutz never stopped shining this Saturday and will be in the semi-finals tomorrow after winning her game against Pauline Chasselin with style (4-1). She will face Jia Nan Yuan again in Sunday’s match. Yuan has not lost a single round since entering the Vendéspace. The other semi-final will be played between Prithika Pavade and Océane Guisnel who each fought to obtain their ticket for the semis.

Among the gentlemen, we are also spoiled with two very big posters. Simon Gauzy will have to get rid of Alexandre Cassin to be able to access a new final. On the other hand, it would be a first for the Dionysian. The two players recently met at the Contender in Lima, Simon Gauzy winning 3-1. On the other side of the picture, a fratricidal duel awaits us. The young Lebrun brothers, Félix and Alexis are climbing up places in the world rankings week after week. After having played each other several times at the French Youth Championships, this is now the first time that they will face each other as seniors, and certainly not the last. Félix was notably eliminated in 5 sets the finalist of the last edition, Romain Ruiz.


Mixed Doubles

This Saturday at the Vendéspace, France, it was the day of the finals! At the end of the afternoon, the 3 finals of the doubles tables took place, while on the singles side the posters of the semi-finals are known.

The Lutz/Pavade duo dominated the first two sets unchallenged, before Mostafavi and Zarif recovered and won the third set. They finally gave in in the 4th set having shown a lot of fighting spirit. The two young players from the French team won their first title together and the second of the day for Camille Lutz!
