timo Boll as the new european champion for the 5th time !


Today the german Timo Boll has won, for the 5th time the European Table Tennis Championship 2011 in Poland. It was an amazeing tournament, maybe because there were a lot of surprises like the serbian Aleksandar Karakasevic (nr. 50 in europe) and Bojan Tokic (nr. 18) place in semi-final, or maybe because of the final which was exactly the same as the year before ( Timo Boll 4:1 Ptrick Baum), or maybe because of the amazing Gdansk Arena.
The semi finals were pretty good although could be better ( Patrick Baum 4:0 Bojan Tokic, Timo boll 4:0 aleksandar karakasevic ). The women’s event was also pretty exciting with the polish Li Qian and the ukrainian Margaryta Pesotska qualification to the semi final. And the women’s final where Li Jiao (Netherlands) has won against the German Irene Ivancan by 4:3 in a long match. The atmosphere at the tournament was very nice, and the arena there was also extraordinary with the training hall at the top of it. So it was a great tournament and i have to say that Poland did a great job making it.


Borussia Dusseldorf has won Their third ECL tittle in a row


It was a fantastic final of the European champions league between the german team Borussia Dusseldorf and the russian Orenburg. In the first leg of this final the german team has won 3:0 giving Orenburg almost no chance to win the tittle. Both teams Have very good player like Timo Boll, Cristian Suss, Patrick Baum for the german Borussia Dusseldorf and Vladimir Samsonov, Alexei Smirnov and Dimitrij Ovtcharov for the russian Orenburg. The second leg of the final was a bit more exciting with wining against Suss by Samsonov in 5 sets (3-11, 11-9, 11-5, 8-11, 11-9).
The second match was between the European Star Timo Boll and the german hopes Dimitrij Ovtcharov. It was a great match, Ovtcharov was determinated to win this match but he didnt play as good to win against Boll and Lost 3:1. After Bolls victory the german team has already won this tittle, so the last two matches were played as exhibition games by the Smirnov win 3:2 to Patrick Baum and Samsonov win 3:0 to Timo Boll. Although Orenburg has won the second leg by 3 to 1 the german Borussia Dusseldorf became the best European team in the 2010/2011 season and has won Their third ECL tittle in a row.
