ITF Player of the month

Tomas Fabian, 54 yo, played his first ever ITF match in France F2.

He went on court without bag, with just one racquet. When he had to serve, he put the other ball close to his feet. He didn’t even know about the changeover. He ended 0-24 on serve but he managed to win 2 points on return!


Honourable mention for ITF player of the month

Sado Laribi, 0-24 games in 2015 but I admire his love for the game and for the competition


Most incredible 1 set all of the month

Stouff – Coco 61 67 ITF France F2

Stouff had 12 bps. Coco 0. Stouff lost 9 points on serve. Coco 44.
