Polish Open 2018
24 Jun

The Polish Open 2018 has come to an end! But what an end!
I’m so happy with my performance at this time.

After a tough Group Stage with Robin Joop I have to play in the Quarterfinals, as a Group No.1, against Adrian Lutz. He wins our last meeting … But at this day I started good into the first set and can decide it with 16:14 for myself. The second set was also tough. But I stayed cool and wins it also with only two points difference (16:14).
My opponent in the half finals was nobody else than Jasa Jovan from Slovenia. Last time I met him was the World Champion 2017 in the finals … I lost in two straight sets! The match on this Saturday was also very fast and tough. He wins the first set with 17:15. In the following two sets I played a little bit better and with that much faults. In the end it was a 15:17 16:11 16:11 for me!
This was the first time ever I`ve reached a final from a World Series 1000 pts. tournament in the Open category!
But next Stop was the final against World No. 1 Petr Makrlík from Czech Republic. Last year a newcomer – this year a big Champion!!
I´ve played very well, strong and controlled. It was one of my best matches until now. And after the first set win with 16:12 nobody stopped me: the second set was also tight, but thats what I like. 16:11 and the Title was save!

Thanks to everybody who watched my games and to my Double Partner Jorge from Gran Canaria 🙂
