AUSTRALIAN IN FORM, FINN LUU CAUSES MAJOR UPSET
Pride of place went to Finn Luu. He accounted for Belgium’s David Comeliau, the highest rated player in the first phase of proceedings, the top 16 names gaining direct main draw entries; most impressively, the 14 year old Australian prevailed in three straight games (11-9, 12-10, 11-3).
Defeat for David Comeliau but it was his only reverse, he duly finished in second position in the group and thus progressed to the main draw.
Success for Finn Luu against the highest rated in the group; it was the same for David Bessa who beat the Czech Republic’s Frantisek Onderka, the third rated player in the initial phase (3-11, 11-9, 11-7, 12-10), as it was for Szymon Kolasa. He ousted Switzerland’s Elias Harmeier, the eighth listed (9-11, 11-6, 7-11, 11-7, 12-10).
All we can say is we are super proud of our boy and good luck in the next stage. Keep focused, one shot, one point, one moment at a time! Focus on keeping it simple and you’ve done your best!
Well don Finn!
