Renato Zülli / Julien Apollonio 12. Ugo Montironi / Felix Ostwaldt 13. Arnaud Saniez / Boris Belouin (scratch) Paris Net Battle 2012 was yet another great tournament. We were honoured by the presence of players from Frankfurt, Helsinki, Kranj, Lausanne, Montpellier, Nantes and Strasbourg. On Saturday we played all doubles matches with classic side-out scoring best of 3 games to 11 points and best of 3 games to 15 points as of semi-finals. There were 2 up-sets in pool play. Seed 9 Olivier Baillon / Seb Lefay beat seed 8 Quentin Isackson / Julien Coblence. Seed 10 Jaka Stare / Milan Ardalic beat seed 7 Vincent Rousseau / Rado Rusev. All teams won their matches in 2 straight games. In π-finals there was yet another up-set Karim Daouk / Miquel Clemente beat Grischa Tellenbach / Lino Landau in 3 tight games were both teams had match balls. Nice serves Karim ;-) The best match in the tournament was probably the ∏ finals between the 2 local teams Arthur Ledain / Greg Lima vs JF Lemieux / Seb Maillet with lot?s of hard fought rallies. Eventually Arthur Ledain / Greg Lima won in 3 tight games and made it to finals. Florian Goetze / Janne Uusitalo won their ∏-finals against Karim Daouk / Miquel Clemente in 2 games. 3rd place went JF Lemieux / Seb Maillet and in finals Florian Goetze / Janne Uusitalo beat Arthur Ledain / Greg Lima in 2 games. Florian Goetze and Janne Uusitalo were just too strong, they went through the whole tournament without even losing one game. Thanks to Eurik Lindner you already can see some footage online http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZU-tDts6Mtw On Sunday we played all singles matches using rally scoring best of 3 games to 15 points and best of 5 games to 15 points as of semi-finals. 22 players competed in 7 pools and there was only 1 up-set seed 15 Seb Lefay beat seed 14 Miquel Clemente. In the round of 16 there were no surprises. In 1/4-finals seed 5 Greg Lima beat seed 4 Arthur Ledain in 3 games. In ∏-finals seed 3 Karim Daouk beat seed 2 JF Lemieux in 3 straight games and seed 1 Florian Goetze defeated Greg Lima in 4 games. In finals Florian Goetze beat Karim Daouk in 3 games (15-13, 16-14, 15-10). This was Karim?s 4?s finals in row in Paris since June 2010 (RNH Contest 2010, 12e ODF, Paris Net Battle 2011) and Flo is the first player to beat him. Thanks again to all players who competed at the Paris Net Battle 2012 and made it a great event. A special mention to Felix Ostwaldt who competed in his first net tournament ever and Seb Lefay our youngster who took a game from Flo and Karim in singles plus he up-setted Miquel. Last but not least thanks to Flo for the footbag lessons he taught to all his opponents throughout this weekend.
