He will join Marcos FREITAS, Tiago APOLONIA, Joao GERALDO and Diogo CHEN on their quest for another big success.

“The practice and preparation were little bit different than usual because I was waiting for the birth of my daughter and my focus was not so much on table tennis,” admitted MONTEIRO.

Speaking about the expectations Joao said: “My expectations for the World Championships is just to try to play the best I can. Regardless the result in China, my wife and I already clinched gold medal.”
