Christin SILBEREISEN put very hard task in front of her. She is trying to make balance between sport and academic career. She had to reduce her tournament schedule, but her aspirations remained high. Instead of eight, she is having four international World Tour tournaments a year and that keeps the pressure to improve her rankings very high.
At the 2015 NN Table Tennis Club ITTF – Europe Top 16 in Baku SILBEREISEN is seeded no. 10. She is a part of the very strong German delegation, with WU Jiaduo, Petrissa SOLJA and Irene IVANCAN playing at the same Event.
“I have not any special preparation for the Event. Right now I have to be focused on my education. I am preparing myself to be Physiotherapist. That is why I conducted only regular trainings,” explained SILBEREISEN.
Last week, Christin was a member of German team at the Dubai World Cup. The best result last year she recorded at the Swedish Open, where she reached quarterfinal. That made her proud and by her words proved her that self-confidence is sometimes more important then long hours in training hall. With her club, Berlin, she won European Champions Legaue, become German champion and Cup winner. With the 5th position in World Cup and title in doubles at national championships it was great year for her.
Top seeds in Baku are: LIU JIa of Austria, Georgina POTA of Hungary, Elizabeta SAMARA of Romania.
“I think that hot favorite for the title is Georgina POTA. She is in very good shape. I am very happy that I qualified for the Top 16 and for a start I hope I will manage to pass the group stage.”
