After the first round, the Hoarau sisters won against the Italian pair, and the Reunion Island pair then met the German-Italian pair. The meeting ended with victory by the Hoarau pair in straight sets. Arrivals in the quarterfinals, Marie-Eve and Mathilde Hoarau, respectively ranked No. 10 and 3 globally, and must compete with the world’s no. 1 in beach tennis: Brazilian Barijan/Cortez.
