COE players Felix Burestedt (Sweden) and Milan Ludik (Czech Republic) have both moved three spots up on this week’s men’s singles world ranking list, standing on positions no. 87 and no. 88 respectively. They have both qualified for the European Games to be held in Minsk, Belarus at the end of June. 

-I am satisfied with my current ranking which gives me a good position before the qualification for the Olympic Games will start. However, I always wish to be higher than I am at the moment.

The European Games, he added, has been one of his goals for the current year and he is happy to have been able to cross it out of his list. 

-I am very happy to qualify for the European Games and really excited to play in Minsk and perform my best at this multisport event.
