The European Open tournament has just started but the preparations already began weeks ago. Thomas has been assigned as temporary production manager to help Bruno Sepulchre with the production of an outside practice court just in front of the Antwerp Central train station, and the centre court in the Lotto Arena. The prelude to the official tournament was a world record attempt organised on the Astridplein where Maxime Braeckman competed for the highest number of tennis matches in a row. Record beaten! Maxime succeeded in playing 40 matches in 25h!
