Charlotte Carey’s ITTF Hungarian Open came to an end on the evening of Wednesday 16th January as a result of losing to French pair Gasnier & Grundisch. In round one of the doubles event, Charlotte, who is partnered by England’s Maria Tsaptsinos, beat Natalia Bajor / Natalia Partyka of Poland 3/2 to progress.
“We performed better as a pair today; after taking a two-nil lead it gave us a chance to play safer and more consistently. They had to take more risks which they did; suddenly the result was two-all. We changed things around with the tactics, played more positively in the final game; it worked in our favour.” Charlotte Carey
