Three German clubs and one Russian won last four matches of TTCLM Round 3, held on Friday, October 27th: TTC Fakel Gazprom - Sporting Clube De Portugal 3:1, Chartres ASTT - FC Saarbrücken Tischtennis 0:3, TTF Liebherr Ochsenhausen - SPG Walter Wels 3:1, Borussia Düsseldorf - Roskilde Bordtennis BTK61 3:2.

 

There are three unbeaten teams after Round 3, with the 3-0 score: reigning TTCLM champion Fakel Gazprom (Group A), 2012 semi-finalist Saarbrucken (Group B) and 2009 runner-up Ochsenhausen (Group C).

 

Four times TTCLM winner Fakel Gazprom beat on its soil the newcomer from Portugal, Sporting 3:1. Portugal`s team suffered its very first defeat, in spite of having one more time brilliant Joao MONTEIRO who beat recently crowned World Cup winner Dimitrij OVTCHAROV. Jun MIZUTANI played crucial role in the host side, as he overcame both, Quqadri ARUNA and Joao MONTEIRO who extended Japanese to full distance in the fourth clash.

 

Saarbrucken had an easy job in Chartres. Bojan TOKIC brought a good energy to his side when he beat Robert GARDOS in straight games of the opener. In other two games Patrick BAUM and Tiago APOLONIA defeated Romain LORENTZ and Par GERELL respectively.

 

Ochsenhause continued its winning streak, playing at home against SPG Walter Wels. Last two out of four matches were crucial and both were stretched to full distance. First Yuto MURAMATSU prevailed against Zsolt PETÖ, then Simon GAUZY beat CHO Seungmin 3:2 (7:11, 11:4, 11:13, 11:6, 12:10) in the decisive encounter. Actual Men`s Singles runner-up of ITTF European Championships won both his matches.

 

Ten times TTCLM winner Borussia Dusseldorf faced Roskilde in very tense clash. Danish team was two matches down, but refused to give up. Laurens TROMER and ZHAI Yijia leveled the score against Stefan FEGERL and Kristian KARLSSON respectively. Sweden`s Anton KALLBERG secured the winning point to the host side in the fifth match against former individual European champion Michael MAZE.
