SWT King of Rackets
The SWT King of rackets in Oudenaarde, Belgium was held for the 23rd consecutive year. Organization was once again flawless and the conditions great with beautiful weather all weekend. Outdoor BBQ and party with DJ made Saturday night special and King of Rackets have once again outdone themselves. Jesper Ratzer and Nathalie Zeoli once again proved that their world number 1 positions are thoroughly deserved.
Zeoli dominates Women Elite draws
Nathalie Zeoli is back on the world tour with two consecutive SWT wins after winning Women Elite singles in Belgium beating the surprise of the tournament, Amke Fischer in the final. Nathalie also won the mixed double with Jesper Ratzer and the Women Doubles with her mother, Gabriele Zeoli.
Hougaard brothers upset the seedings
In the Men Elite draw, Jesper Ratzer took his 8th consecutive singles title. Last time Ratzer lost a Racketlon match was at last year’s King of Rackets losing to fellow Dane, Kasper Jønsson. Surprises of the Men Elite were the Danish brothers, Jesper and Kresten Hougaard that upset the seedings in the 1/8-finals. The brothers beat Germany’s top two players. Kresten defeated 4th seed Thorsten Deck while Jesper eliminated Makus Zeoli on a gummiarm point. Biggest upset of the tournament came in the likes of local favorite, Peter Duyck who reached the semifinal. The Men Elite doubles was won by 1st seeds Calum Reid and Stefan Adamsson who beating Deck/Hougaard in the final.
