Nacho Gadea and Germán Tamame win the Marseille Challenger

Marseille surrendered to the best padel in the world. The last international Challenger of the season brought together a host of pairings looking to prove their quality and help France fall a little bit more in love with this sport. From the impressive Marseille Cathedral to one of the most important ports in Europe, this week padel has had a French accent.

Gadea/Tamame VS Moyano/Grabiel

The final of the last International Challenger of the season involved the two best pairings throughout the week: Maxi Grabiel and Ramiro Moyano versus Germán Tamame and Nacho Gadea

Both pairings were on the back of tough three-set semifinals and fitness was going to be an important factor. Gadea and Tamame took the lead early on after breaking in the opening game and holding on for 2-0. They grew more comfortable in the following games and broke again in the seventh game. This left them serving for the match at 5-2 and, despite Maxi and Ramiro digging deep to cling on, Tamame and Gadea won the first set 6-2.

The second set was a repeat of the first. An effective Tamame and Gadea broke Moyano in the first game and took a 2-0 lead yet again. This advantage gave the Spanish/Argentine duo wings and the confidence to play without any pressure. They went up 4-0 and forced Moyano and Grabiel to come up with something out of this world to stop them in their tracks. That never occured as an almost perfect performance led German Tamame and Nacho Gadea to win 6-0 and take the Marseille Challenger 2017.
