Alix Collombon, putting French padel on the map

France's Alix Collombon has been one of the revelations in the women's World Padel Tour Circuit this season.

The 28-year-old has won multiple Challengers this season, both in La Nucía and Alfafar, as well as making two finals in Calanda and Lerma.

Not only this, but Collombon has made history as well during the Cervezas Victoria Cordoba Open 2021.

Playing with Jessica Castelló, Collombon reached the quarter-finals of the Cordoba Open. They upset Marta Ortega and Bea González in the round of 16, the sixth-seeded pair of the tournament.

This made Collombon the first French player ever, male or female, to reach the quarter-final stage of a major tournament.

The Lyon-born was knocked out in Cordoba's quarter-finals by eventual finalists Ariana Sánchez and Paula Josemaría, winning the first set 7-5 but only winning three games in the following two sets.

Starting the calendar year ranked 36th, Collombon has climbed 13 places and now finds herself in 23rd. Her compatriot Léa Godallier has climbed 13 places too from 53rd to 40th, although she has not seen the same success Collombon has in either Challengers or Opens.

The 28-year-old Collombon is 21st in The Race 2021 and out of contention for the Madrid Master Final this season.

If she keeps her progression, however, she could well be at the season's climax next season. Until then, she still has the Swedish Open to try and impress people!
