Mohajer and Lovli rally to win tiebreaker for main draw spot
Norway’s Sadegh Mohajer and Ruben Olai Lund Lovli were the first team to move into the main draw after fighting off Slovenia’s Andrej Grut and Matevz Berk in a three-setter. After losing the opening set, the Scandinavians came back strong to register a 2-1 (16-21, 22-20, 15-11) victory.
Issa Batrane, who played last year in Montpellier with a different partner, competed this time with 19-year-old Frederick Bialokoz. The newly formed England pair easily beat Italy’s Emanuele Labate and Lorenzo Panerati 2-0 (21-10, 21-7). The Italians tried to play a fast game but the Englishmen played solidly and consistently, especially in reception.
