And three in a row for Grégoire Barrère (ranked 117th) qualified for the final of Play In Challenger, as in 2018 and 2019. The two times defending champion was on the verge of collapsing this Saturday against Picard Maxime Janvier (ranked 219th). With one set down and five games to 2 in the second set, Grégoire then proposed a nice remontada winning the five following games before seeing his opponent falling down in the third set. He will be faced in final, this Sunday, to Belgium Zizou Bergs (ranked 329th), a qualifier, who upset French Quentin Halys (ranked 214th), 1-6, 6-3, 6-3. To be noted the match will be live broadcasted on beIN Sports 4 and on the website of French Tennis Federation, at 3 pm.
