Toulouse. Three Haut-Garonne crowned at Roland-Garros

We start with Hugues Besson (15/2, Emulation Nautique), crowned French champion on Sunday for the first time. “I’ve been taking part in this competition for twenty-five years. At most, I had reached the quarters. It’s still a surprise to win this title in the 75-year-old category (laughs). In any case, on this magnificent site of Roland-Garros, I felt really good”, confides this former 4/6, winner in the final of François Pierson (15/2, Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur League) in the super tie-break ( 6-4, 2-6, 10-5).

Three days later, in the 70-year-old category, Alain Vaysset (15) offered a second national crown to Emulation Nautique. “It must be my fifth or sixth title. It’s my third year in this category. I had the chance to walk on the most beautiful clay court in the world, with referees on the chair and access to the medical service. . What more could you ask for? (laughs)”, specifies this former 2/6, also titled in the super tie-break (6-4, 0-6, 10-7) against Dominique Leman (15/1, Ligue des Pays de the Loire). It should be noted that this Montpellier resident, licensed at Emulation for three years, plays international tournaments.

Singles and doubles for Patrick Vergnes

Finally, at the beginning of the week, Patrick Vergnes (2/6, Stade Toulousain), responsible for relations with the Territories within the FFT, won in singles among the 50-year-olds and in doubles among the 45-year-olds (with the other Stadiste Mathieu Cordelier, finalist in 45 years against Arnaud Clément). “I had already won in singles in 40 years and 45 years. On the other hand, it is my first title in doubles. But beyond the results, I especially remember the pleasure that I took on this court N.14 of Roland-Garros”, underlines this former – 30, winner in two sets (6-2, 6-2) of Montpellier Stéphane Tancogne (2/6).
