Swedish tennis fans all had their eyes on theAPT Padel Tour. Indeed, the two legends Thomas Johansson and Jonas Björkman were driving back the courts together this morning. But this time it's with a racquet padel !
The first match of the previas of this APT Grand Master left us a match that will go down in history: the debuts of two tennis champions of the 1998 Davis Cup, the Swedes Thomas Johansson and Jonas Björkman.
Their opponents were two young players from padel promising Swedes, Gustav Eriksson, 20, and Leo Hylander, only 16.
With his characteristic two-handed backhand, the director general of the APT Padel Tour won his first match alongside his pal Jonas Björkman. After this 6/4 6/0 victory, the two compatriots are only one step away from the main draw of the Grand Master of Sweden!
