3:1 – Ochsenhausen won Roskilde and ticket for next stage in ECL

Published 10 December, 2010

Tonight in Biberach, Marcos Freitas’s German team Ochsenhausen confirmed its second place in Group C and ticket for next stage in ECL which means participation in ETTU Cup Quarter Final. Germans played without Portugal’s Tiago Apolónia and only their loss suffered his replacement Ruwen Filus. Ruwen Filus lost to Allan Bentsen with 1-3. He missed some good opportunities in second set and maybe, that was the main reason of his loss. In clash between Marcos Freitas and Finn Tugwell you could see “two matches” in five games. Tugwell started with two sets in his favour, but the young Portuguese stopped him in early third set, with some aggressive attacks and several points in a row. From that moment Freitas was unstoppable and won with 3-2. Finally Kishikawa dominated all the time the last match and Bentsen had no chance to avoid the loss by 3-0. The ETTU Cup Quarters will be played in the begining of the year 2011 but at the moment the oppoment team is unknown.

Results of the match:

Ochsenhausen Vs Roskilde

  • Seiya Kishikawa vs Roko Tosic 3-1 (9-11, 11-8, 11-5, 11-9)
  • Ruwen Filus vs Allan Bentsen 1-3 (6-11, 10-12, 11-6, 5-11)
  • Marcos Freitas vs Finn Tugwell 3-2 (9-11, 6-11, 11-7, 11-4, 11-4)
  • Seiya Kishikawa vs Allan Bentsen 3-0 (11-3, 11-9, 11-5)

Croatia and Portugal in Unison at Polish Open

Published 14 November, 2010

Portugal’s 22 year old Marcos Freitas a player from Ochsenhaüsen and sponsored by TIBHAR, in partnership with Croatia’s 26 year old Andrej Gacina donned the Men’s Doubles crown at the Polish Open in Warsaw on Sunday 14th November 2010. Seeded no.6, they overcame the Czech Republic pairing of Antonin Gavlas and Petr Korbel, seeded no.4, in the final to collect their first ever ITTF Pro Tour Men’s Doubles title as a partnership. They overcame the duo from the Czech Republic 11-5, 11-7, 9-11, 11-6, 11-8. Both partnerships formed the classic combination, the left handed attacking player in harness with the right hander of similar ilk. All four are players on duty are in the European mould of being topspin players who are at their best, at what is often referred to as “half distance”, a position where they have the opportunity to unleash strong attacks. However, there are differences, the left handers Marcos Freitas and Antonin Gavlas arguably are the players who realy more on controlled topspin play than power, whilst Andrej Gacina and Petr Korbel are to some extent the reverse. They are power players. Both partnerships have shown their qualities on the ITTF Pro Tour in recent times but neither pairs had ever progressed to a final. Antonin Gavlas and Petr Korbel had reached the quarter-final stage in Poland in 2008 and in 2009 had gone one stage better by reaching the semi-finals,  whilst in the same year they had reached the round of the last eight pairs in Denmark, Qatar, Germany and at the ITTF Pro Tour Finals earlier this year in Macau. Equally, Marcos Freitas and Antonin Gavlas had proved more than worthy opponents but a place in a final had proved elusive. Earlier this year they had reached the semi-final stage at the Qatar Open and at the German Open. In Warsaw, they went one step higher but could not climb the highest step. The top step was reserved for Marcos Freitas and Andrej Gacina.


  • Marcos Freitas (POR) / Andrej Gacina (HRV) VS Antonin Gavlas / Petr Korbel (CZE) 4:1 (5-11, 7-11, 11-9, 6-11, 8-11)
