Eslovs` player stressed that „daily performance will be the deciding thing” in the returning final leg against Pontoise (Sunday, 17:00 CET, live on laola1.tv)
Mattias OVERSJO opened the 2016 year as world’s no. 199, but that ranking does not match with his current play. The 24 year-old player of Eslovs beat Chinese WANG Jian Jun four weeks ago in the first final leg of Table Tennis Champions League Men, helping his team to achieve maybe historic win (3:1). This Sunday Swedish champion plays returning match in Paris against the 2014 TTCLM winner AS Pontoise Cergy, hence we asked Mattias OVERSJO to give us a short interview…
How do you comment victory in the first leg?
“I think we played a really good match in the first leg. It was a hard match and we had a great audience in the hall that helped us win the first leg”.
What do you expect from the game in France?
“I expect a really hard game of course, like the first match. It is the final now so every match is really hard”.
What could be crucial for the TTCLM title?
“I think it is really close between these teams, so the daily performance will be the deciding thing”.
Are you satisfied with your play in the last couple of months?
“I think that I have found my game a little bit the last couple of months and played some of my best matches in my career so far. But now there is one more match to go. So I need to reach the same level that a have played the last couple of months”.
