It’s a high-level present that we attended this Saturday at Jean Macé, for the final of the season at house.
However, there was no purpose to think about such a lengthy and disputed assembly… Les creusotins have been disadvantaged of their leader Paul Verdier, so it was Alexandre Molenda, Léo Rozier, Valentin Commeau and Wendy Belhaire who defended the crimson and black colors. Facing them is the Parisian armada, full with the 2 Chinese gamers Hongbin Zhu (N°349) and Liu Rundong (N°371), accompanied by Florian Bon (N°575) who’s at the moment in nice form and Jean-Michel Alner (20).
In flip, our 4 representatives will succeed in making the partitions of the cauldron and the hearts of the supporters vibrate, as a result of sure you’ll have understood it, Paris may have trembled!
From the outset, it was Wendy Belhaire who warmed up the room, sadly in useless… Combative as standard, she deserved higher for her final at house in the colours of the membership, she who will probably be leaving for a new mission this season. subsequent, however as a fatality, as if it have been written that this yr, it is not going to repay for her, she is going to lastly lose 15-13 in the fifth set, after saving 5 match factors…
At the identical time Valentin won’t be able to do a lot against Rundong and Paris takes the lead 2-0 in this sport.
It was then that Alex and Léo entered the world and the temperature rose a notch in the cauldron… Léo transcended, who in his personal phrases, had been on the lookout for a very long time to slam the perf that might function a set off, he reworked his phrases in motion by overtaking a Hongbin Zhu who might solely see the prevalence of the younger creusotin on the sport!
Alex can even win against Bon in a situation that solely the ping can supply us… He will save 5 set factors in the third set earlier than pocketing the set, then 4 match factors in the fifth set earlier than profitable 12- 10!!
2-2, the ball in the middle however will probably be too arduous for Wendy against Rundong and for Valentin against Alner.
Paris breaks once more and leads 4-2 earlier than experiencing what might virtually be likened to the turning level of the match.
Alex and Léo pushes the vice of the suspense till beginning collectively their fifth decisive set, respectively vis-a-vis Zhu and Bon, however they’ll incline not with out combating each and the Ile-de-France residents fly away 6-2 earlier than the doubles.
But we could not cease there… Alex and Wendy did not make it against Rundong/Bon however Léo and Valentin fought arduous to win once more in a fifth set against Alner/Zhu!
7-3 for Paris and the present goes on!
Even if Alex won’t be able to make Rundong doubt, shedding 3-0 and thus sealing the rating of the assembly, Valentin, abandoning all strain, can even slam his efficiency in a match with out stake against Bon, push by the few remaining spectators. Because sure, he too was ready for his perf and it’s deserved, as a result of he’ll (lastly) have succeeded in enjoying against nature to get out of the enemy’s clutches alone and that for a Commeau, it is difficult!
Final rating 8-4 for Paris, but when we had been informed that earlier than the match, little question everybody would have signed!
Even trying rigorously, it’s troublesome to search out a adverse level to this assembly… An intense battle from begin to end, perfs, suspense, joys, tears, confirmations, revelations, maybe a little remorse however above all the arrogance gained and a lot of pleasure. Because sure in the present day with out their leader, the younger folks took their tasks and Alex proved as soon as once more that he has misplaced virtually nothing of his very good!
