Nico Ruponen reaches semifinal in Ireland

Nico Ruponen together with Amanda Hogstrom reached the semifinal in Irish Open. They entered the tournaments as 1st seeds and made it through to the semifinal with a few 3 set wins on the way. In the semifinal they went up against the 5th seed dutch pair of Arende/Piek that proved to be too difficult in this tournament. Upon his arrival back to Sweden Nico was informed by the Swedish Olympic Comittee that he and Amanda were granted financial support from SOK for the coming years up until the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio. This is a much needed support for a player as commited to his sport as Nico is.
