Bruguera Wins Seniors Paris

Posted on September 24, 2007

Sergi Bruguera beat Guy Forget 6-4, 6-3 on Sunday to win the 4th Trophee Jean Luc Lagardere senior tour event in Paris.


It was the fourth title of the year for the Spaniard, who lost to the Frenchman in last year's final.
 
"I'm playing very good on the court and I'm enjoying it," Bruguera said. "I'm trying shots that I've maybe never tried and they're going in. I'm really having very good fun when I'm on the court and that's why maybe I won the match."
 
Forget says Bruguera retains much of the speed of his tour days.
 
"He's quick, he doesn't miss much and the balls all jump up in your face with his topspin," Forget said. "I'm really happy for him because he's a great guy. Sergi is the kind of guy you want to be around at a tournament like this one. He's valuable for the crowds, for the kids, for the media, and for the people that come here for lunch. He's always smiling and enjoying life and he's a great player. So it's just wonderful to have someone like him winning a tournament."
 
Bjorn Borg presented the winners' trophy.
