Victor Crouin 3-1 Grégoire Marche 11-9, 8-11, 11-5, 11-2 (58m)
“Not sure it was our best performance today, for both of us. I think I was feeling a bit stressed today. I have grown up watching Gregoire, and then training with him in the South of France, so we know each other very well. I have gone up the ranking and reached the national No.1 spot in the rankings, but it is never forever and I need to prove it every time I step on court. I am glad I got my first way against Greg, but not the way I wanted for sure.
“To be honest, the hard part is that I have played on this court. It took me a few minutes, a few rallies, to get into the game. The first game was crucial. Getting that first game 11-9 after being 7-2 down was crucial for the confidence. But to answer your question, I was trying to get the ball tight to the side walls so he couldn’t use the volley and use the attacking shots. Once I had my accuracy to the back, I was trying to use my drops from the middle.”
