“It happens, that’s what it’s called a game, sometimes, you win and sometimes you lose. It goes up and down”.

“But in the Men’s Doubles, we have tried our possible best and our best have pushed us into semis and talking about our opponents, the guys did their best to show that they are also a good team to play with but have to let them know that we’re better than them.
