Gaspert looking for more

Frédéric Gaspard is hoping that his team can reach at least the quarterfinals of the tournament, after a good win against RSP/RBS from Latvia.

The player who competed in both Men’s Singles and Mixed Doubles revealed that the club, based near Junglinster are looking to impress given that the tournament is so close to home, and believes they have advantages.

- We did not really know what to expect because we don’t know the players but it was a good win for us, Gaspert said.

- It is really nice to achieve a win like this. It is not far from the player’s homes and our families are here, so it is nice, he added.

Men’s Singles not enough for ACD Che Lagoense

Bernardo Alitano picked up his club’s only win of the afternoon after he beat Lukáš Zevl in straight games.

The Portuguese player who played in Mixed Doubles as well this afternoon has revealed it is a special feeling to be at the European Club Championships.

- It feels very good to get a point for my team, I came from the European Games so I am a little bit stiff from the journey, Alitano said.

- I think I am one of the more international players in the team so hopefully, the team can pick up some motivation from my result.

- It is my first Club Championships so, I feel proud to be here, also doing some matches here at this level will prepare me for my tournament in Africa, he continued.
