Brocéliande Tournament – Ploërmel
Célia Frassin retained her title in women’s singles series 1 without having to force her talent too much since she imposed herself quite largely on all of her matches of the day. In mixed, the pair Lila Berton and Baptiste Roturier also had a smooth run until the semi-final where they had to battle against the pair Rogue / Lanier after three extremely tight sets.
They had come looking for confidence and left satisfied. “The two finalist pairs left feathers in the semi-finals but we managed to take the direct upper hand. We have been playing together for four years and we train together in a club so we know each other very well. Our strength is our automatisms but also our right-handed-lefty duo which can disturb the opponent. We are full of confidence after half-hearted tournaments where the level was higher”.
As a single man, Kévin Tropée had a complicated start in the pool with a hung first match then he played his game by offering two good performances against two N2 including Victor Reichert in the final. The local Pierre Gauttier confirms his return to form in single series 4 by winning the tournament and should regain his best ranking.
