the marathon of Mouriño and Huete in Bourg en BresseNovember 27, 2023
More than a padel tournament, it was a marathon. Argentina’s Federico Mouriño and Spain’s Mario Huete Hernandez won the FIP RISE in Bourg en Bresse, France, in front of a great crowd, in very tight matches. Forced to the third set already in the quarter-finals and semifinals, Mouriño and Huete – the number 3 seed on the draw – beat the Spaniards Enrique Goenaga and Javier Martinez (who led the entry list) in the deciding match with a score of 6-2 2-6 7-5. Fede and Mario hugged each other for a long time after the decisive point.
“A week that ends in the best possible way – Huete’s words –. Thanks Fede for being by my side in this tournament, and thanks to the organisation for putting us in the best conditions to play. See you next year”. Mouriño and Huete are on the Milano Premier Padel entry list, admitted directly to the main draw: Mouriño will play with compatriot Agustin Silingo, Huete with Diego Gil, Spanish like him.
