Austrians dominate in Vienna

The Vienna Classics are the first international tournament in the year which where held at City and Country Club Wienerberg last weekend for the second time.
It looks like the Austrians showed their best game at their home tournament and so both Elite podiums were full of Austrians. All results are now online on fir.tournamentsoftware.com

In Women Elite World no.1 Christine Seehofer (credit:racketlon.at) was too strong for the rest and saved her first title in 2017. The Podium was filled by Bettina Bugl on the second place and Elisabeth Seehofer on the third.

In the Men Elite draw Lukas Windischberger  showed that his top seeding was correct. He won over Michi Dickert (second) and Stephan Schmutzer (third).

Also the doubles were lead by the players of hosting country: the gold medals went to Windischberger/Dickert in the men doubles, Seehofer/Seehofer in the women doubles and Seehofer C. /Windischberger in the mixed.

But also all other Draws where tight and we saw some spectacular ralleys from the „Amateurs“. Leigh Sands from Australia for example showed us a „Superman“ dive on the Badminton court.

Florian Ptacnik did a great job as Tournament Director and had a great Team behind him, so everything ran very well.
