Simon GAUZY overcame Abdel-Kader SALIFOU. The young 18 year old player showed a lot of confidence before the World Championships.
“It feels so good! After my injury in 2012, I took some time to come back but I managed. I am really glad I did it. In the final, I played on incredible level and Abdel-Kader SALIFOU also deserved it as much as me. This title will give me a lot of confidence for the future,” said GAZY.
