Orleans Masters (Super 100)
Xuefei Qi (N.44, Seed N.7) and Thomas Rouxel (N ..) were out on the same move when they entered the court at the Palais des Sports in Orleans at about the same time. After an almost identical and extremely disappointing match.
The Bad Club Roseren player never knew how to find the right tempo against the Indian Ira Sharma (N.91) he first met, who erupted in joy after a 21-14, 21-17 victory in the 40s. Poor performance of the French champion after the progress he saw at the Swiss Open.
Basel did not concede a draw as they fell to future finalist Christie, and Thomas Ruxel was unable to capitalize on his chance at the Lloyds this Wednesday. With a bad start (13-21), the Bretilian from Chambli looked like he would have won the third round against Taiwanese Chia Hao Lee (N.117), just like the next FIFA. But the qualifier, who lost to Ruxel at the Irish Open seven years ago, had the final say (13-21, 17-21 in 33 ‘).
No wonder Romane Cloteaux-Foucault
At the end of the day, young Bretilian Romane Clotox-Foucault returns to the BWF Tour in 2021 after his singles experience in Orleans. With her partner Anouk Nampot (N.773) pulling out twice in a qualifier, they logically beat a Swiss pair 21-12, 21-17 against N.76.
On Tuesday evening, at the Polish Open, they lost to Ukraine’s Danilo Bosniu (N.92) – experienced Spanish player Pablo Abien (N.55) 21-16, 21-15, from the recent semifinalist BC Ross Train.
