[9/16] Fares Dessouky (Egy) 3-1 Leandro Romiglio (Arg) 12-10, 7-11, 11-7, 11-7 (58m)


“I felt well on court. Today was a very tricky match, he’s [Leandro] a very tricky opponent.

“I had to be on my toes. It went well, I was moving very well today. The court was a bit fast, so I had to adapt my game a bit.

“The thing is, I was trying to lift the ball a bit more today. I wasn’t trying to just hit the ball hard, I was trying to hit my targets more and soften the game more. I tried to be more explosive if I was going to pick the ball up.

“This is the first time I will be playing Victor, so I’m very excited for this one. He’s a very good opponent and he is playing very well nowadays. Hopefully it will be a good one.”
