Dmytro Zavadsky of Ukraine won the FZ Forza Slovenia International 2015 (5.000 US Dollars) men's singles title after he beat Kalle Koljonen from Finland in three tight games. It was a big comeback from Zavadsky after he had lost the first game and was able to save a match point in the third game.

His fellow countrywoman Marija Ulitina beat current European Junior Champion Mia Blichfeldt of Denmark. The young and talented Danish youngster surprised Ulitina in the first game, but it was not enough to win the match against the more experienced Ulitina.

The all-French final of the mixed doubles event was won by Bastian Kersaudy/Lea Palermo. They beat their national team mates Marin Baumann/ Lorranie Baumann in three games.

Germans Linda Efler/Lara Kaepple won the women’s doubles title as they beat Chloe Birch/Jenny Wallwork of England in three games in Sunday’s finals.
