“I think we started well today in the first and second set. We could not contest with them in the third and fourth, and then we are very happy we had the mental strength to take the tiebreak. Probably that’s not enough to get through, I think we needed three points today to go to the next round. But we still have a few matches to go and will see where we finish,” Hendrik Tuerlinckx, Captain and MVP from Knack Roeselare.
He was the top scorer with 25 points, while Milija Mrdak was the best in the German team.
