Drinkhall wins 4-3 / 2 3 -8 -6 -9 4 5

He came out blazing, then it looked like he relaxed thinking he could win easily, then he lost 3 straight looking like a different player, played games 6 & 7 like 1 & 2 to win.

Paul Drinkhall's female coach, Ceri-Ann Davies, is not a table tennis coach. She is a high performance manager. That was his weakness being able to close out matches in the last games. He would lose focus.
