The Ile-de-France resident offered himself a royal treble this year: gold at the world championships, the European championships and the title of champion of France.

The dream season of Marc Renoult (IDF, 15) continued in Pas-de-Calais, on the courts of Le Touquet, where the 2024 French senior championships are taking place. The resident of Stade Français won his 8th national title after losing in the final Marc Selig (IDF, 15/1) in two mastered rounds 6/4, 6/1.

“Given the absence of Didier Kaisserian, title holder, who was injured during the regional championships and not drafted by his league, I became the favorite, explained the winner. There remained two very dangerous players, my brother and Serge Gresy, the other two ranked 15. I beat Serge in the semi-finals and my brother, who is a great customer, had the good idea to lose against Marc Selig! He is a player who has progressed well but I knew that I was starting as a clear favorite. I’m over the moon, already because I find the trophy really pretty (laughs). And the president of the FFT had the excellent idea of ​​offering two places to the winner to see tennis at the Olympic Games.”

A new chapter to come in this dream season: in the space of a few months, Marc Renoult has been crowned at the Worlds, the European Championships and the “France”. “For my first season in 70 years, it’s difficult to do better. I knew I had to be good this year but this year, it exceeds all my expectations.”
