Davies bows out in Czech quarter-final
Rob Davies was unable to take home a medal at the Czech Para Open in Ostrava last week, as he was beaten in the quarter-final stage of the event.
Competing in only his second tournament since winning his fourth consecutive European singles title in 2019, and his first this year, Brecon’s Davies started well with a 3-1 win against the in-form Alan Papirer from France, gold medallist in both the Egypt Para Open and Al-Watani Para Championships this season.
He lost his second match 3-0 to Timo Natunen from Finland, who took silver in the Paralympic World Qualification Tournament last year but progressed to the quarter-finals where his lack of match practice told against Kim Hakjin.
Davies had chances to win the first set but the Korean edged it 14-12 and took the next two 11-8 for a 3-0 win.
