Marcos Freitas vs Par Gerell
Men’s semi-final, European Table Tennis Championships
4 October 2015
Hugely entertaining match between these to left-handed attackers. Freitas (Portugal) is the player with the higher ranking, but Gerell (Sweden) takes a 3-1 lead with some very consistent and aggressive attacking play. Freitas finds his own attacking rhythm and wins the next two sets to take the match into the final set. Freitas leads 6-3 in the final set, but Gerell wins 5 straight points to take an 8-6 lead. I’ll let you watch the match to find out if Gerell can see out the match. This match has loads of great topspin to topspin rallies. Enjoy!
