Olympic champions, world champions and currently world No. 4, the Norwegians Anders Mol and Christian Sorum mastered the final against the Dutch pair Brouwer / Meeuwsen (HOL), No. 3 in the world rankings 21-19, 21-18. “ To win here for Norway, on this court where so many great tennis players have won, is huge. We are really very happy to be able to win the first edition of this tournament. As Norwegians, we also wanted to ”aveven” Casper Ruud, beaten in the final by Nadal. Norway won at Roland-Garros », rejoiced Anders Mol. In the women’s draw, the Dutch Katja Stam and Raïsa Schoon, world n°2, enforced the hierarchy against the Latvian pair Samoilova / Graudina (n°7).
Taking stock, David Donnelly, president and co-founder of RnK, organizer of the Paris Beach Pro Tour, remembers: “We welcomed a lot of people with 15,000 tickets sold. There was also great activity in the village and a very good atmosphere in the stands when people know little about this sport and the French pairs were not qualified for the rest of the weekend, even if they are not passed away. The atmosphere rises in two minutes with an audience that quickly gets into the game. It’s great to hear them say as they leave “ wow, I love this sport, I didn’t know, it’s great. »
