World Junior Men – New Zealand, Day 2

Sandeep and Parth won won their matches in the morning  however lost to higher ranked opponents Tom Pashley (Eng) and Simon Rosner (Ger)  in the 3rd round. 

Earlier in the day in their second round matches both Sandeep and Parth moved ahead in contrasting fashion. Sandeep had an easy 3-0 victory whilst Parth  had to battle thru and win in 5 games. Both Harinder and Naresh lost in matches that too went the distance. Both boys after losing their first games played with alot of grit and dertermination to take a 2-1 lead. Unfortunately they both could not convert it into a victory.

Naresh lost to David of  Canada who was seeded 17/32in the event. Playing some delictae drops and forcing the length Naresh was in control of the match. David fought real hard.  7-7 in the 5th was anybodys match. David took his chances and hit 2 perfect foreharnd kills to win the game and match. Harinder losing the first easily came back real strong hitting winners at will. Leading in the 4th game suddenly he was unable to convert any of his winners and made a series of errors.  Overall the results gives us a perspective of what needs to be done to ensure we do well in the teams which is our main goal.
