Truls Moregardh solidified his position as Sweden’s best by winning his third straight National title this week in Sweden. Moregardh is currently No. 5 in the World, ten spots ahead of the next highest Swedes (Kristian Karlsson and Anton Kallberg). The biggest surprise of the week was Finalist Viktor Brodd (outside World No. 600), a 32 year old known mostly for his Doubles skills who pulled out a 4-3 win over Mattias Falck in the Semifinal before falling to Moregardh. Moregardh’s Semifinal win was over Anton Kallberg – a rematch of the 2021 Final with Moregardh winning again.
Christina Kallberg won the Women’s Singles event over Linda Bergstrom. Christina Kallberg also won the Mixed Doubles title – teaming with her brother Anton. And Christina tripled up on titles by winning Women’s Doubles with Erika Front. Men’s Doubles went to Par Gerrell and Jens Lundqvist.
