FINALS Day

European Masters Champions Crowned in Malmo

SP_10311Day Four and the European Masters Champions 2015 were crowned today.

With just six of the top seeds winning it was a good tournament for the underdog, and a good one for the Brits, as England (and Scotland) took four Men’s and four Women’s titles.

SP_10357Germany took one each while, to the delight of the home crowd at Bellevuestadion, Sweden claimed two titles thanks to Christian Drakenberg and Fredrik Johnson, who saved four match balls on his way to winning the match of the tournament against Willie Hosey.

Johnson and German’s Simone Korell became the only players to win titles at all four editions of the European Masters, Germany in 2009, Portugal in 2011, Poland in 2013 and now Sweden in 2015.
