Table tennis: Alexis Lebrun doesn't stop and offers a double final in Zagreb

Alexis Lebrun surfe sur une dynamique de premier plan et pourrait décrocher deux titres ce dimanche. XinHua – Zhang Ziyu

Winner of the Korean An Jaehyun after a suspenseful match, the Montpellier Alexis Lebrun offered himself a new singles final, the second in two weeks, this Saturday June 8. And he will also play the doubles final this Sunday.

Alexis Lebrun continues and sees more and more of the Olympics in singles. Two weeks after a final in Taiyuan, the Montpellier native is offered a new one, in Zagreb this time, thanks to his beautiful success on Saturday over the Korean An Jaehyun, 11-9, 10-12, 11-4 , 7-11, 11-6.

Defeated a fortnight ago in China on the verge of a WTT title, the eldest of the Lebrun brothers will challenge this Sunday (4:15 p.m., on RMC's Twitch and Youtube channels) the winner of the second semi-final between the Japanese Tomokazu Harimoto (11th in the world) and Shunsuke Togami (19th).

Associated with Gauzy for a title

This Sunday could even be a day of total glory since the 20-year-old table tennis player (30th in the world) will also play the doubles final. He will be associated with Toulouse's Simon Gauzy (28th), with whom he largely dominated the Singaporeans' Pang Koen and Quek Izaac (11-2, 11-6, 13-11) on Saturday. For the title, the doublet will be opposed to the Egyptians Youssef Abdel-Aziz and Mohamed El-Beiali or the Poles Jakub Dyjas and Samuel Kulczycki.

Alexis Lebrun and Gauzy, who should compete in the Olympics together, are also competing for the last place in singles alongside Félix Lebrun. Defeated in the round of 16 of this Contender WTT, the Haut-Garonnais saw the Héraultais move back in front while the counting of points for Paris 2024 will be stopped on June 18 . The gap could widen further this Sunday.
