In addition to saying present in the singles table, where he will face Zizou Bergs (188 °), Lloyd Harris (31st) scored in the doubles section of the ATP 250 Antwerp. But the funny thing is that he will form a couple with Xavier Malisse, a retired Belgian tennis player, who is his coach..
Malisse, who is 41, retired from professional tennis in 2014, leading to a long period of inactivity. In his career, which began in 1998, he achieved three ATP titles: Delray Beach in 2005 and 2007 and Chennai in 2007. Although the most important data for this news is that in doubles he raised nine trophies.
Other of his greatest achievements was having reached the Wimbledon semifinals in 2002, the same year in which he reached his best ranking: 19th. At Roland Garros and the US Open he reached the round of 16, twice per tournament, and in Australia his best result was the third round.
Harris and Malisse will debut, in the round of 16, against the pair made up of Romain Arneodo, from Montenegro, and Matt Reid, from Australia. It still remains to know the date and time of the meeting.
