Germany’s Jones Ralfy Jansen is excited for his first Thomas Cup

- My preparation for the Thomas Cup are doing well. I have an extra motivation for that as this is my first time to play Thomas Cup and It’s also one of my dream to play there, says Jones Ralfy Jansen

Germany will have to fight against strong opposition
- Talk about my individual goals is to get a good result here (hopefully to give a point for the team as well), to take a good experience and I’ll enjoyed it every part from this tournament for sure. As a team I’m expecting a great work from the team, to fight, to cheer together because that’s what team event means. Japan, Chinese Taipei and Hong Kong is in our group. Which mean we have a strong team who we have to fight it in the group stage. I’m really looking forward for that and cannot wait to give my/our best for that, says Jones Ralfy Jansen
