Olah beating Kallberg has to be all about Kallberg and I say that as a fan of both. Falck I think ran into a team with good pips coaches but my memory may be wrong.
The draws are somewhat insane. I looked at Quadri's draw and he is surrounded by Ionescu (who he survived in a tough match), Robles and Gauzy and if he gets past them all, his reward is potentially Harimoto. Other players are lucky to be getting players from non-sti countries in the earlier rounds. But hey, Kallberg got Olah from Finland and while Olah is a beast, Kallberg should win that 3‐1 up, hopefully highlights will show up sometime.
I'm afraid Alexis plays on 1 leg, he wasn't so dominant Yehvhen pushed him to 7-7 most of the games. The patellar band he wears under his knee is the strongest one that exist here on the french market, the Orliman Patel'Rgreat comeback by Olah to beat Kallberg, happy for him.
dominant performance by alexis lebrun in his game too
Dima and Patrick are not that invincible, at all ! they had to struggle sometimes yesterday facing a french pro B only iranian pair, Amir Hoadei/Amin AhmadianThe Hong Kong Doubles team (Wong, Ho) played well against UK team (Walker, Jarvis) and is through to round of 32, but will face the German pair (Dima, Patrick). Will be another tough one.
best offensive quality amongst JPN male players but a bit weak defense-wise, if he can improve this and his mental sturdiness he'd be one hell of a force in international tournamentsI am rooting for Tongami. In his unassuming body he shows the spirit of RSM. If you’ve watched the mens final of Japan National, Togami slaughtered Harimoto in the last set. His style reminds me so much of the 40mm era

It’s the same for both players, and at my local league level I always welcome any venue, but this is the world championship! I think the lighting doesn’t seem to be as good as it should be😪
