Victor Crouin prend le titre!

Il a dit:
Delighted to have won a 15th PSA title & a 3rd 20k event this year in Houston, Texas.
After 3 weeks of good training and despite the midterm-exam season, I was really excited to travel and compete again. Playing four matches back-to-back was definitely challenging but I am glad I found the mental resources to make sure I would not embark myself in physically long and intense matches. Indeed, I was relieved to win my quarter final match against Emyr Evans in 4 games but I knew I had to change something. In fact, I learnt a lot from it; I adjusted my game to rely more on my racket skills and less on my physical abilities, ultimately seeking to be more decisive, and it was succesfull.
Thanks to the organization for putting up this event. We are lucky to have a few 20k and 30k organized all around the USA, which allows me to continue to compete on the Challenger Tour, something I’ve always cherished!
Thanks everybody for your support!
It’s now time to focus on the U.S. college season which looks like one of the most competitive season ever! Let’s see if Harvard can defend its individual and team titles! 💪
Finally, congrats to all the newly crowned French junior champions this weekend in Lille!!
