The World Cup in table tennis. Marek Badowski beat the world champion

The Taiwanese is the world champion in doubles in 2013 (in tandem with Chuang Chih-Yuan, also a Houston player of Dartom Bogoria Grodzisk Mazowiecki), but Badowski won surprisingly easily, losing no more than 8 points in any set. Jakub Dyjas, who won the Croatian Frane Kojic, also went to the second round. In the second round, Badowski will face the great Swede Kristian Karlsson, and Dyjas will face the even better (number 2 seeded in the World Cup) Japanese Tomokazu Harimoto.

Ping-pong players played their singles fights a bit earlier. Only Natalia Bajor, who competed with much weaker Belgian Nathalie Marchetti and won 4: 2, after a fairly even game, advanced from Polish women to the 1/32 final. The second obstacle is going to be more difficult, because it will be the great Romanian Bernadette Szocs. Natalia Partyka and Anna Węgrzyn, however, dropped out. Partyka was leading with the 59th in the world Cheng Hsien-Tzu ranking 2: 1 in sets, but lost the next three games. It is a pity, because the Taiwanese did not present anything special, but made fewer mistakes. Partyka and Bajor also play doubles, while for Węgrzyn a 0: 4 defeat with the great Romanian Elizabeta Samara means a complete farewell to the competition.

Both our mixes inaugurated the championships with their victories, although Dyjas and Partyka had a surprisingly long struggle with the average Argentinians. In the second round they will face the French Emmanuel Lebesson and Yuan Jia Nan. Badowski and Bajor, however, after eliminating the Slovaks, will play for the 1/8 finals with the Hong Kong duo of Ho Kwan Kit, Lee Ho Ching.
