In Paimpol, the Argentinians hosted the tennis tournament – Paimpol

On Saturday, at the end of the ladies’ final of the Paimpol tennis tournament, the president of the club, Christian Deloget showed his satisfaction: “We lost a little in terms of the number of entries, but that was compensated for by the quality of the game! The atmosphere was very good and the return of the Argentinians enlivened the club. »

The Argentinians are mostly students, who roam the clay-court tournaments, from Normandy to Côtes-d’Armor in summer. “In the department, they go through the Pléneuf-Val-André, Saint-Quay-Portrieux and Paimpol tournament. »

A heightened spectacle

With 162 registered, including 50 women or young girls in fifteen categories, the show had been high since July 28. And this, even if the scores may suggest a very large domination, as in the women’s final, won by a score of 6-0/6-0 by the Argentinian Sol Rabin over his compatriot Morena Ippoliti.

The French Saïd Aït Sali, who came from a Norman club, even if he was dominated at the start of the final by his opponent, showed excellent potential, at only 16 years old.

Contentious exchanges

After the ladies, the public awaited the men’s final, for a confrontation between two promising young players, the Frenchman Saïd Aït Sali, only 16 years old, opposed to the Argentinian Mariano Cassan. If the Argentinian dominated the first three games, the quality of the services and some very disputed exchanges brought the joy of the spectators.
