A1 Padel

Saved matchpoints — defended the title on A1


The A1 tour number one was in trouble for a long time and had match points against him in the third set. 
But Maxi Arce and Franco Dal Bianco turned the match around and won the A1 France title. 

At 5-4 on their own serve, Pablo Lijo and Miguel Semmler had a dream opportunity to decide the match. But A1's giants Maxi Arce and Franco Dal Bianco turned it around and won after a decisive tiebreak.

The match ended 6-1, 5-7, 7-6 for the Argentines. 

This means that Arce and Dal Bianco consolidate their position as number one on A1 and defend their title from last weekend in Seville.

Pablo Lijo is suspended from the World Padel Tour until this summer due to a gesture to the crowd in Argentina and therefore plays on the A1 tour. 

On the women´s side, the French team with Jessica Ginier and Lucile Poitier won the title at home.
