Mathias Christiansen triples the bet with Alexandra Boje

Already the winner of the mixed doubles in 2015 and 2016 (with Léna Grebak), Mathias Christiansen did it again in the closing round of the Orléans Masters 2021 with his partner Alexandra Boje.
In a fratricidal final, Boje/Christiansen enforced their status as #7 seeds. Already finalists at the Swiss Open earlier this month, the Danes score big points in the Olympic race.
The last final of the 2021 edition was not the most spectacular match of the week, as it is often the case on such occasions, especially between players who know each other very well.
Amalie Magelund and Niclas Nohr (also winner in 2018 with Sara Thygesen) could never find the tactics to make their compatriots doubt. At the net, at the back of the court, everything was going too fast for them and they found themselves very far behind in the score. 21-13 for Boje/Christiansen.
The second set, however, was a bit more tightly contested. It was a mental game, it was close but the money-time was very clearly in favour of the favourites who needed only two match points to win. 21-13, 21-17 final score.
At the Orleans Masters, the mixed game remains a European specialty. And even more Danish with this fourth title in the last six editions which goes back to Copenhagen.
