Number 2 seeded players win

Jairo Bautista and Facundo Dominguez among men, Amanda Girdo and Helena Wyckaert among women. The number 2 seed lifted the trophy in the FIP RISE in Gothenburg, the first of two CUPRA FIP Tour events scheduled in the Swedish city in a month.

 

The Spaniard and the Italo-Argentinian won the final defeating (3-6 7-6 6-2) José Carlos Gaspar and Inacio Piotto Albornoz, who had beaten Benjamin Tison and Victor Mena, the number 1 seed, in the semifinals: after losing the first set, they won the second on the tiebreak before dominating the third.

Less balanced was the final of the women’s tournament, won 6-3 6-3 by Sweden’s (and therefore host) Amanda Girdo and Belgium’s Helena Wyckaert over Aitana Garcia Roman and Alba Perez Momha.

I am really happy with the victory in the FIP RISE in Gothenburg – said Wyckaert – Thank you Studio Padel for the excellent organisation of the tournament. Me and Amanda are proud of our performance: let’s keep it up“. In Gothenburg, where a FIP RISE was already played in April, they will be back on court again at the end of June.
