Team semi-final place secured for Hirth
March 19, 2017
Trevor Hirth is in to the final day of competition at the ITTF PTT Hungarian Open.
Today will see Australia’s Hirth competing in the semi-final of the Class 6-7 team event alongside France’s Esteban Herrault.
The Australian/French combination was unable to defeat the Romania/Israel team, but with a 2-1 win against Austria/Nigeria, they secured their spot in the semi-final.
“I lost a thriller five setter against the Class 7 gold medalist at this event. It was definitely one that got away. But it was a great game with a decent sized crowd getting in to the action,” said Hirth.
The semi-final against Slovakia gets underway at 11:00am local time (GMT+1).
“We’re guaranteed a medal, it’s just the colour to be decided. Anything is possible.”
