Beach Tennis - Munich in May 2012

MUNICH, GERMANY: The second ITF Beach Tennis Tour event to take place in Munich over the past week drew entrants from nine nations across the men's and women's events.

The men's event saw the second seeds from Italy, Giulio Petrucci & Luca Rosatone, emerge from the tournament without loss of a single set and victory in the final was secured with a 76 62 win over the fourth seeded Brazilian pairing of Marcus Ferreira & Thales Santos, who themselves had also reached the final without loss of a set.

Not losing a set en-route to the final was also the theme in the women's event, although only half the drawsize of the men's event. A 60 63 triumph in the final saw the Italians Guilia Curzi & Gloria Gadoni emulate their male compatriots by claiming the title as second seeds.
