Truls Möregårdh fell unexpectedly – WC finished sports

Two years after taking home a sensational silver in Houston, Trulls Morrigard is the yellow-blue hope of the restroom in Durban, South Africa.

It all ended in decline.

The world number one faced the Swedish Omar Al-Assar, ranked 30 in the world, in the round of 16 and was the favorite to advance. But the opponent, who was 10 years older, opened the strongest and also took the first set.

However, Trulls Morrigard responded by winning twice in a row and suddenly the psychological advantage moved across the table. When the fourth set was about to start, El Masry was missing and Morrigard had to stand and wait for a long time.

– It’s as if something happened, Omar disappeared, and commentator Peter Jehde yelled at Fiplay.

However, the 31-year-old was back on the table relatively immediately and the game could go on.

Omar El Assar finally won 4-2 and thus the Trulls Morrigard WC came to an end – at least in singles. Tonight he played in the quarterfinals in mixed doubles with Stina Kahlberg.

– Omar makes a flawless effort, and plays better at the short game than I would have thought, and maybe Trolls too. Trolls were very uneven. You should not give Omar the opportunity to enter matches, he never gives up if he gets a set or two, says expert Per Gerell on the broadcast.

– It feels a little snowy. I thought he would have a very good chance today.
