Pro A (3rd day). TC Quimperlé – Sannois OSS, this Saturday from 11 a.m. at the Concarneau tennis-padel.
The matches ending in the super tie-break are not popular for TC Quimperlé, who have never managed to do well at the end of the matches. “This rule was intended to shorten the duration of the matches, and we had no success. The two lost matches were played in a ten-point super tie-break. It undoubtedly favors those who want it the most, ”underlines captain Philippe Huon, who hopes to see his team meet more success.
Bretons Manuel Guinard and Evan Furness paid the price for these great tie-breaks, both in singles and doubles. “But they give their best. We hope to see them win. »
Sannois, a solid promoted
The opponent of the weekend, OSS Sannois, has just faced the two favorites of the championship, with a narrow defeat against Loon-Plage (2-4), then a very good draw at Boulogne-Billancourt (3- 3). “We expect to play their best team because they know that if they win, their survival will be almost assured. And our position in last place makes us the team to beat…”, explains Philippe Huon, who does not like to see his TCQ end up last in the group after two days. “To get out of it, we absolutely have to win. Not only against Sannois, but also next Wednesday against Annecy. » Z
