Quadri: All matches difficult in Mauritius

… says title for fans, Nigerian youths



Africa’s number one player, Aruna Quadri, who won the just concluded Men’s Singles at the African Table Tennis Championship in Mauritius, has said that he encountered tough matches on his way to victory.

Quadri, who last month won the International Table Tennis Federation Nigerian Open, explained that the inculcated spirit of nationalism and determination in him led to his victory particularly against Ahmed Saleh of Egypt in the final.

“Winning the championship was tough and all the matches were difficult; but I was able to win due to determination and the Nigerian spirit in me,” he told our correspondent.

He further expressed his gratitude towards the unending support he got from his fans back home.
