GAME SET MATCH VERRAZZANO!
par Paul Jacques
The first edition of the Verrazzano Open, organized by Patrick Mouratoglou and Guillaume Rambourg (CEO of Verrazzano Capital, title sponsor) at the Mouratoglou Academy has proven to be a huge success.
The tournament, which attracted a large crowd of tennis fans and some of the best tennis players in the world, culminated in the worthy victory of British player Aljaz Bedene, who beat Benoit Paire in the final.
Bedene, who won the title without dropping a set, received the winner’s trophy from none other than World No1 Andy Murray who chose the Mouratoglou Academy as the training base to prepare his clay season.
All in all, the Verrazzano Open delivered way beyond expectations for the general public and the players who often compared the tournament to a 250 ATP equivalent. See you all next year!
