Wessels takes the Gold Medal in ladies division

In a tough and fiercely contested final match, Henrique Correia (POR) defeated Frank Willner (GER) 7:5. Correia had smooth sailing in the beginning. Things went according to his likings and he was able to gain a comfortable 5:2 lead over Willner. But “Willie”, as his friends call him, tried everything to strike back. However, Correia was just too good for him today. In the end, the result of 7:5 for Correia is a true and fair display of the player’s performances.
