Di Giantommaso and Silvestre seize gold in Siofok
France’s Romain Di Giantommaso and Jeremy Silvestre claimed their first ever World Tour gold in Siofok, Hungary
Di Giantommaso and Silvestre had not lost a single set in the tournament, but the young Lithuanians were up for the challenge to force the tiebreaker. The Frenchmen still claimed gold after recovering in the third frame to record a 2-1 (21-15, 18-21, 15-12) victory.
“This is only our fourth tournament together,” Di Giantommaso said. “After winning the French Championship, we won in Siofok. Super!"
“It’s true that we lost our first set in the final, but we expected a hard game and were successful at the end,” Silvestre added.
