The tournament will start on Wednesday morning in Leuven, with a number of European stars wanting to write their name in history, as they take on players from around the World.

Last year the tournament was a successful one with a number of players from Europe managing to get a podium position and will be hoping for the same this year.

Hall believes that they have a good chance to win the tournament and being the number two seeds, they have no fear!

-We are the second seeds going to the competition so for me, I feel that we should be looking to win the tournament!

- I am looking forward to playing, it will be my first time playing the tournament and after an average performance in Spain a couple of weeks ago, I'm eager to show a better standard.
