Aruna Quadri exits German Open, heads to Swedish Open

After his narrow loss to unknown Hungarian – Bence Majoros in the preliminary round to exit the 2017 ITTF World Tour tagged German Open, Premier Lotto ambassador – Aruna Quadri will be heading to Swedish Open, which holds next week in Stockholm, Sweden.

Despite the disappointing 4-2 loss to the Hungarian, Quadri restored his pride with a convincing 4-1 win over Czech Republic’s Michal Obeslo. But the victory could not aid his advancement to the knockout stage of the preliminary round.

A saddened Quadri said: “I think the second match against the Obeslo was much more difficult having lost the first group match. The first match was a very difficult match because I knew nothing about Hungarian opponent while his style of play was strange with a very strong backhand. I hope I can play better in the next tournament but it happens like this in sports. I am not going to give up, I just have to continue to play and remain focus in training. The tournament is tough because the best players in the world are here and I must also commend the organization of the tournament.”

On Thursday November 9, the main draw of the singles will start with all eyes on the new ITTF World Cup champion, DimitrijOvtcharov and his compatriot – Timo Boll.

The Swedish Open is the last ITTF World Tour for 2017 and Aruna Quadri has been seeded number 22 and the tournament serves off on November 13 with the preliminary round while the main draw will start on November 16 to 19.
