MXD 1st round DUDA Benedikt/WINTER Sabine (GER)-NUYTINCK C/LUNG Lisa (BEL) 3:4
NUYTINCK Cedric (BEL) on defeating Germany 11-9 in 7th:
“I think the pressure was for them when they have a crowd like this. You have to tell yourself in your head that since you are not the favourites they will be experiencing the pressure in this situation much more. Lisa held her service and receive really well; they were stronger in the rallies but we were better in the short short game. I think we can win the next match and then why not the next match and the match after. We have a good draw, and with a draw like this, if we can beat some seeded players we can go deep.” ITTF
