Men's Norway Open 2001  
Stavanger, 4 - 8 July

Emanuel and Tande win again in Stavanger

Stavanger, 8 July - Brazilian combination Emanuel/Tande dominated the Men's Norway Open in Stavanger, progressing through the preliminary rounds undefeated before taking the final against the Laciga-brothers from Switzerland 2-0 (21-19,21-15). The Brazilians only dropped one set in three days of competition.

Compatriots Loiola/Ricardo however, were not in the same form, unexpectedly bowing-out of the tournament early with two consecutive losses. Firstly to Swedish combination and 22nd seeds, Berg and Dahl 2-0 (21-15, 21-18), then to Olympic Champions Blanton/Fonomoiana, USA in their second match, 2-1 (21-15, 12-21, 20-18).

Paul and Martin Laciga have now competed in every final this season, but are still to taste victory. They are determined however that their time will come. Ze Marco/Para of Brazil defeated the perennial World Tour Canadian team of Child/Heese for third place.
