From Brussels to New York, modernity in tradition

Written by Vincent Schmitz

Behind Court 16, a Belgian: Anthony Evrard. Son and grandson of "Bourgeois Sport", the first Belgian "pro" tennis store, created in 1968 and well known in the world of rackets in Brussels. Anthony will naturally spend a lot of his time learning to string rackets at the same time as the alphabet, like his father for professionals. He will also drag his first setbacks at the Royal Leopold Club, still in the wake of his family, one of the first "proletarians" to tread the courts of the mythical "Leo". And more precisely on the 16, his favorite, the second on the left when you enter the club.
