Ben Jones and doubles partner Dan Little avenge final defeat to win third ITF World Tennis Tour title at M25 Toulouse-Balma tournament
Team Bath Tennis player Ben Jones and partner Dan Little claimed their third men’s doubles title in five months on the ITF World Tennis Tour after a week of strong performances at the M25 Toulouse-Balma tournament in France.
University of Bath graduate Jones and Little dropped just six games as they eased through the opening two rounds to set up a semi-final against French duo Arthur Bouquier and Martin Breysach.
It was a repeat of the previous week’s final at the M15 Poitiers tournament, which top seeds Bouquier and Breysach had won 6-4 6-4, but Jones and Little came out on top this time to progress 3-6 6-4 10-8 after a hard-fought contest.
Theo Arribage and Luca Sanchez provided another French test in the final but Jones and Little came through it with a 7-5 6-4 victory to add the title to their two doubles crowns won in Sharm-el-Sheikh, Egypt, in November.
