HUITIEMES - LAST 16
If the top seeds Gilevskiy and Hofman didn't have any troubles
with even a 11/0 for the first one to finish, we have a few matches that
didn't go to seedings!
In the Egyptian Derby, Hasanen upset his compatriot Elshbaihy
in 3, while Ismail managed to break the French hearts ousting
home favourite Loaec, 12/10 in the 3rd.
Another upset, the early exit for the 3/4 from Turkey Sen, beaten
in 3 by Swiss Khalil. Last surprise, Swiss Cull managed to
squash French 5/8 Shroeder in a very close scoreline, 11/9,
10/12, 11/8, 11/9 in 49m.
French Douillard had
to fight very hard to get to the quarters, English Besant only
bowing 11/9 in the 5th! All the other matches were only 3 games.
Two matches didn't go to seedings, English Johnson overtaking 5/8
Irish Smith and Egyptian Easa beating Dutch Markus, 11/1 and 11/0
in the last two games.
No upsets really in that
round, apart from one match, French Manu Paquemar bowing to English
Carter in 33m and four game, with none of the other matches getting
more than 3 games.
Everything went according to seeding in the GU15 last 16, all matches
only three games, and the only match that went to 4 was Swiss Simona
Frevel against French Emma Hodapp.
Appart from Elmashad beating German Jeeva in 3 verrrry
close games indeed, 12/10, 12/10, 11/8 in exactly one hour, all the
other results didn't show any suprises.
To be noted the excellent match from the French Dubarry who led
2/1 and pushed 3/4 Vorlicek to 11/8 in the 5th in 76m!
No trouble for the first 2 seeds, French Segers & Dutch
Permentier through to the quarters.
Little upsets with Swiss Neill and Dutch Fritsche that
ousts better seeded Ludin and Elserty. A big deception for the French
Camp as Maelle Fuhrer, 3/4, lost a disputed 42m 4 setter against
Swiss Charlotte Jagger 9/16.
Blast! That was not the
result the French audience wanted to see! One of French most loved young
players, Enzo Corigliano, lost to Welsh Elliot Morris.
What a drama too, as Enzo lost the first two 7, 8, only to claw back 8,
finally bow 13/11 in the 5th! on Elliot first match ball...
One little upset seeding
wise, with the victory of the Irish Oisin Dunne who beat Swiss
Roman Allinckx in 4. Nice to see Sébastien Bonmalais still on
course, he comes all the way from La Réunion - where Thierry Lincou
comes from. That was a trip worthwhile bless him.
One French girl in, with Lauriane Maingot that manages to upset
3/4 Lowri Roberts 14/12, 16/14 in the last two games, while
another French goes out, Julie Rossignol, against Egyptian
Hamouda, 11/8 in the 5th...
I won my
first round against Andreas DIETZSCH and then this evening, against
teamate Rohan MANDIL. I am happy with the way I played. I had good
Quarter final against Oisin Dunne from Ireland tomorrow at 11:55 !
J'ai gagné aujourd'hui mes 2 premiers tours contre Andreas DIETZSCH et
Rohan MANDIL. J'ai fait des bons matchs avec de bonnes sensations. Je
suis prêt pour les quarts de finale qui se tiendront demain à 11h55. Je
serai opposé à l'irlandais Oisin Dunne.
A demain ...
FULL SPEED THIS MORNING....
Yesterday afternoon was a slow-ish
day - results here - with still a few marathon/heartpumping matches from
Erwann Poulain in the BU17 coming back from 2/0 down to take the
match 11/9 in the 5th, and
Emma Tauzin in the U19 that win an easy encounter, 15/13 in the
at the Wam, and
