German Tim Haller will wake up tomorrow to the prospect of 3 quarter final matches at the Uganda International.




The remarkable achievement today was topping group C in the SL3/4 men’s doubles with partner Pedro Pablo De Vinatea (PER), after a surprising win over strong Indian opposition Suhas Lalinakere Yathiraj and Umesh Vikram Kumar 16-21, 23-21, 21-14.


Taking top spot in the group means avoiding difficult opposition in tomorrow’s quarters, Haller and Vinatea have drawn the Ugandans Hassan Mubiru and Bashir Mutyaba, and hope to meet the top seeded French in a potential semi-final to guarantee a medal.


Comfortable wins in the SL4 men’s group sees Haller through with a bye in the R16 to a likely match up against Suhas (IND) once more, the Indian fresh off a first International victory of the season, claiming the Turkish title a few weeks ago.

SL3-SU5 mixed doubles sees Haller and partner Thory Wieben (GER) come through their group in second place after a loss to Raj Kumar and Parul Parmar of India. Nevertheless they have a good chance in tomorrow’s quarter final which sets Haller up as a potential triple medallist this week. He had this to say:


“I felt very good today, the men’s doubles was so hard, we didn’t expect to have a chance! I can’t believe we won in 3 sets. Amazing. it has been a very successful week for me so far, tomorrow will be tough in the quarter finals and I’m definitely pushing for a medal.”
