Collombon takes France's first WPT title

French padel history was made today in the La Nucias World Padel Tour Challenger north of Alicante. Alix Collombon won the country's first-ever WPT title along with Jessica Castello.

The team beat Aranza Osoro and Barbara Las Heras in the final, with Osoro taking care of the backhand position. 

The final score was a clear 6-1, 6-3 to the French-Spanish pair Collombon/Castello. Alix Collombon is ranked 29, and Jessica Castello is ranked 26 on the World Padel Tour. 

In the semi-finals, the team won against Carolina Navarro and Eli Amatriain in two sets. 

The men's final was won by Momo Gonzalez and Javi Rico after Lucas Campagnolo had to withdraw from the match due to injury. The title marks the team's second Challenger victory of the season. 

Add to that the fact that the team went as far as the final of the Santander Open earlier in the year.
