07/03/2010 – Christian KONGSGAARD won his first title in men? singles in the Danish closed championships. He played a very good match in the final against Finn TUGWELL, the 2009 champion. “I have lost to Finn TUGWELL seven times in the last two years. It is a dream I have fulfilled today and I am very happy to be Danish champion,” Christian KONGSGAARD said after the final. “I was well prepared. My tactic was to play Finn deep in the backhand and short in the middle of the table, and I am very satisfied, that I could keep this tactic. When I won the first set quite easy, I became mentally stronger.”
