The double double for Israel
The Hatzor International came to an end today in Israel with home fans having a lot to cheer about. Their star Ksenia Polikarpova managed to win back-to-back double titles for Israel in the women’s singles and women’s doubles.
Polikarpova cruised her way to another singles title without dropping a game. In the doubles, with her partner Heli Neiman, whom she beat in the singles, it was much the same. Perhaps many more titles will be coming their way.

In almost perfect symmetry, Germany’s Felix Hammes had a great tournament and also won the double in men’s singles and men’s doubles. Like Polikarpova, he too had to defeat his doubles partner, Christopher Klauer, in the singles, but their showdown was the final.
