Tennis. Marius Portebois wins… almost at home

Pont-l’Abbé Open

After eleven days of competition, and 199 matches involving 158 players from thirteen categories, the Open de Pont-l’Abbé ended on Monday. A grand finale with the senior finals.

Among the ladies, Pauline Doré (- 4/6) was opposed to Juliette Trunet (0). The first, from Gradignan, was the number 1 seed of the tournament and had entered the previous round. Juliette Trunet, meanwhile, had beaten Lucy Furness (seed number 2) in the previous round. Unsurprisingly, the favorite Pauline Doré won (6-4, 6-1) by logically dominating her opponent of the day.

Among the men, the results were turned upside down by the elimination of seeded Hugo Pierre and Loan Lestir, big favorites of the tournament. The latter lost to Marius Portebois (1/6), a native of Quimperlé, finalist and winner of the tournament. Facing him, Malo Paulesquen (0), just 17 years old, propelled into the final after the abandonment of Grégoire Barety, Hugo Pierre’s scorer. Tired by his victory against the Argentinian Mateo Galdon (0), the same morning, the Quimperlois was not sure to hold on until the final. Driven by his large crowd, Marius Portebois won easily (6-2, 6-3).
