Every player is a player, a lesson for Zeyad Aldmaisy
Crowned champion on home soil in Amman in 2015; for Jordan’s Zeyad Aldmaisy it was a difficult start for the 20 year old in his opening contest in the Under 21 Men’s Singles event at the Seamaster 2017 ITTF World Tour Qatar Open in Doha.
He was beaten by Japan’s Yuma Tsuboi (11-6,11-8,11-4).
Simply, Yuma Tsuboi held the aces; at 8-6 ahead in the second game, Zeyad Aldmaisy had an opportunity but the highly structured systematic training background from which Yuma Tsuboi had learned his skills told.
He was able to press the accelerator and smoothly move through the gears to secure victory.
“I practise three times a week, I need more training but I have held from the International Table Tennis Federation; I was able to go and practise in Sweden”, Zeyad Aldmaisy.
Playing in Sweden undoubtedly helped and in his own environment, Zeyad Aldmaisy is one of the leading players. En route to winning the Under 21 Men’s Singles title at the 2015 Arab Championships, he beat Tunisia’s Adem Hmam at the quarter-final stage before overcoming the Bahrain duo of Ilyas Ilyassi and Mohamed Abbas to claim the title.
