Lauric JEAN: “I wanted to stop everything”

Roeselare had re-writes its history. In the 83rd Belgian Championships Jean-Michel SAIVE for the first time since 1981 was a spectator: “I really had fun, it’s a different perspective”-

And to greet his heir, did not hesitate to jump on the table after Lauric JEAN dominating the final against Cédric NUYTINCK, the current Belgian No.1 and favorite.

Lauric JEAN, precisely the last to beat Jean-Michel SAIVE – in the quarter finals 2010 – beat Yannick VOSTES (A4) in the quarter after leading 5-8 in the seventh and final set (11-8) and Robin DEVOS (A2) after saving 6 balls, 3-3 (5-10 and concluded his third match point (16-14), then crucified NUYTINCK at unthinkable 4-0 .

“It’s just amazing,” said JEAN with a tear in the corner of the eyes. “When I entered the room, I was ready to die, do not let go and give everything on the ball. Before the final, I did not think about 2010 when I thought that by beating Jean-Mi, while was done. “

Presented for several years as the next Jean-Mi SAIVE, Lauric had a bumpy path: “I got lost on the way sometimes,” he smiled. “But the francophone federation, always believed in me. Jean-Mi (SAIVE), Martin (BRATANOV), Denis (MICHELLOTTO) and Gregory Litt, the physio. Without them, I may have stopped. I restored order in my life. I’m only 22 years old but today I am especially proud of me. At Jülich, Second Bundesliga, I have new benchmarks. But success will not change anything. On Tuesday I will be at the training. “

Nathalie MARCHETTI won her third title. That had not been done for 14 years after Martine HUBERT (1999-20001).
