A busy week of action saw the Eastern leg of the Senior Indoor Nationals circuit come to a close, following the women’s championships and the men’s over 55+ categories last month. In Montreal last weekend, ten titles were handed out across five age categories and the many tough battles were fought to capture a crown at this year’s event.
Among the big winners was Quebec’s Olivier Borlée. On Sunday, he beat Julien Payment of Quebec 6-3, 6-4 to defend the men’s over-40 singles crown. The win was Borlée’s second title of the weekend, having clinched the over-40 doubles championships with Philippe Pourreaux one day before.
Borlée and Pourreaux, also of Quebec, combined to defeat Patric Sachetelli and David Simard of Quebec 6-4, 6-1. The doubles title is the first for Pourreaux in this age category at the Eastern Indoors. Last year, he picked up the over-35 championship with Mathieu Giguere.
Martin Lemay also found himself back in familiar territory. Lemay captured the men’s over-50 crown at the Eastern Indoor Nationals last year, and on Sunday the Quebec-native found himself in another championship final. In a showdown of the top seeds, No. 1 Lemay captured a 6-3, 6-1 victory over No. 2 seed André Lambert of Quebec.
Here is the complete list of champions:
|AGE||SINGLES CHAMPION||DOUBLES CHAMPIONS|
|35||Simon Tremblay-Larouche||Luc Dessureault/Frederick Dionne|
