Two weeks ago occured, from 1st to 6th November 2022, the Hylo Open 2022 tournament in Germany which welcomes again some players from our different editions.
Then, we have followed them and noted their performances (going with some thrills !)
◾Concerning our French players, they gave all they have to try land a good place :
Men's Single : after his different victories during all the tournament, Toma Junior POPOV, winner of our 2022 edition, bowed in semi-final before the Taiwanese CHOU Tien Chen (17-21/11-21) by finishing 3rd/4rth on the podium for his category.
Mixed Doubles : despite their good fight, Thom GICQUEL and Delphine DELRUE, the French mixed duo winner of the Orléans Masters 2019 edition, is unfortunately not qualified for the final and ends at the 3rd/4rth place of the podium, submitting by 2 sets to 1 (23-21/14-21/7-21) facing the Indonesian pair KUSHARJANTO et KUSUMAWATI, in 2nd place of our podium in 2022.
This Indonesian pair meets the final and wins the 1st place of Hylo Open 2022 in the Mixed Doubles category in 2 sets (21-17/21-15) against the Chinese duo FENG Yan Zhe/HUANG Dong Ping.
◾On English side, Sean VENDY et Ben LANE, winner duo of our 2021 edition, stop themselves too in front of the final's doors, after fighting at the 2nd set (9-21/17-21) facing the Taiwanese pair LEE Jhe-Huei/YANG Po-Hsuan.
