Hopiness talents show their tennis skills

At the BNP Paribas Fortis Champions two Hopiness tennis talents got the opportunity to show their skills. Hopiness is a non-profit organisation supporting young sporting talent. On Saturday, before the ATP Champions Tour final between Xavier Malisse and Mark Philippoussis, two young players were able to put that talent on display.

In the David Lloyd Club of Brussels Sofia Costoulas (13, Belgium) took on Madelief Hageman (15, Netherlands) in front of a full grandstand. After an exciting one-set match Hageman won with 7-5.


Hopiness and BNP Paribas Fortis Champions organised an auction with unique items or experiences for young sports fans. The profits will be invested by the organisation in supporting young tennis starts at the organisation.

Do you dream of meeting John McEnroe, attend the prestigious ATP Finals in London or put up a signed picture of Kim Clijsters? Check out all the auctions at www.hopiness.eu/auction.

This auction was made possible thanks to contributions by Jaguar, Golazo, Imagellan, Academy Justine Henin, Okazoom, David Goffin, Thierry Van Cleemput and Jacques Borlée.

All proceeds will be donated to Hopiness.
