Piwowar and Sellado team up for silver in Greece

on

Kacper Piwowar and Abraham Sellado took team silver as the Europe Youth Series moved on to the Greece Open.

The duo qualified for the Under-15 Boys’ Team final with a spectacular 18-0 record in the group stage and semi-finals, overcoming teams from Croatia, Belgium and hosts Greece, including the Greek first team in the semi-finals.

There were some close matches, with both players taken to a deciding singles game on one occasion, and then fighting back as a duo from 7-2 down in the decisive fifth game of the doubles in the semi-final.

Their opponents in the final were an older duo from Poland, and the English pair, who won team gold on the Serbian leg of the Series in September, could not extend their record as they were defeated 3-0 and had to settle for silver.

Both Sellado and Piwowar now turn their attention to Mixed Doubles and Boys’ Singles over the weekend.
