Following their victory over Nigeria’s duo of Aruna Quadri and Olajide Omotayo in the main draw of the men’s doubles of the 2019 ITTF World Championships, Germany’s Timo Boll says his side rely on their experience to get them over the line over the Nigerians.
Aruna and Omotayo led 2-1 in the encounter before the Germans duo of Boll and Patrick Franziska snatched the game and ran out 4-2 in the highly entertaining game.
“It was a tough match because we never expected them to give a serious challenge and this happened. From the start, they are very strong but we had to restrategize to overcome.
“I think experience holds the key for us in the encounter. We had to rely on our experience in the game to muscle the victory from them. I am so happy we started well and I hope we will improve as we progress,” he admitted.
Quadri will face world number one later today in the second round of the competition.
