Ronan Labar and Anne Tran have won the LI-NING Denmark Challenge 2019, making it their first title as a pair.

If the first final of today was anything to go by, then for the rest of the day we are in for a treat.

Three tight games

The match was made up of both pairs fighting for points at the highest level, resulting in the match going the distance.

The first game was won by Gicquel/Delrue 19-21, coming from behind to win against
Labar/Tran who have been a pair since the start of the year.

The second game was a good recovery from Labar/Tran as they invested a lot of energy to make sure that they did not go out without a fight!

The third and crucial game was won by Labar/Tran who won the match with a determined performance throughout, (19-21, 21-18, 21-15)

The feeling is great

Labar and Tran have won their first title as a pair, and Labar told Badminton Europe, how much it meant to him.

The pair have also revealed the aims for the future and a bright future for the new French Mixed Doubles pair.

- I feel quite great, we have taken our revenge from the Orléans final, and a very long game once again, so I am very happy with this first title with Ann, Ronan Labar told Badminton Europe.

- It was difficult to settle, we are used to playing them in training and in the final of the  Orléans Masters, but I think we managed the match quite well, Anne Tran said.

- We are hoping to win some good points and then move up to the BWF 100, 200 and maybe super series, as well as moving up the world ranking, Labar revealed.
