“Golden match” in French Futures

The 6-0, 6-0 win by 18-year-old Dan Added over 34-year-old French countryman Freddy Prioton in qualifying at a Futures event in Poitiers this week stood out.

Added won all 48 points played – a “golden match“. It’s hard to do. At the very least, your opponent can shank one out. Or double-fault. Added did neither.

Added is ranked No. 853 and  was ranked No. 22 in the ITF juniors a year ago.

Prioton’s only previous pro experience was the qualifying of the same event in 2016 (he also lost 6-0, 6-0).

Tennis-Actu reported his French ranking was a 30, equivalent to a 3.0 in the U.S.
