Sean Lacap didn’t get the result he wanted in the men’s open singles at the Manitoba Open, but he did in men’s and mixed doubles.

After falling in straight sets to Kevin Kylar, Lacap and his brother, Chad, defeated Stephen Dubienski and Mike Lodewyks, 4-6, 6-4, 6-1, in an entertaining men’s doubles final at the Kildonan Tennis Club Saturday.

He topped it off by partnering Anita Paskvalin to a 6-2, 6-2 win over Lori Mann and Mark Vandal, to finish the round robin with a perfect 4-0 record.

It’s the fourth men’s doubles title at the Manitoba for the elder Lacap and the first for the younger.
