      Austria - Champions of Europe!

      Gardos commented “We were ready for a long match, we were aware that if you want to beat Germany you have to be prepared to play the marathon. This was shown in my first match and i never gave up, i just kept fighting“

      The majority of the matches were closely fought and it was to be Austria’s Fegerl to face rge pressure of the fifth match, just as he did in both the Austria vs Russia and Austria vs Portugal matches. In both of the previous matches Fegerl had managed to emerge successful and he was to do the same on this occasion, as he managed to overcome Germany’s Patrick Baum in three straight sets (11-9, 11-8, 11-6) claiming victory for his country. Fegerl stated“This time it was easier than in the previous matches, Germany were under a greater pressure, meanwhile i felt and played relaxed.“
