Peñalver reaches final in Poland

Peñalver reaches final in Poland!

One of our promising U19 players of Pro Team Spain went to Poland this past weekend to play the Polish Junior Open and he did very well for himself. Luis Enrique Peñalver entered the tournament unseeded so he hard a tough tournament ahead of him. In his second round he was up against 2nd seed Wolfgang Gnedt who was sent home in straight sets (21-13, 21-19). In the 3rd round a 5/8 seeded polack was waiting and he was also beaten in sets (21-15, 21-14).  In his semifinal a 5/8 german player was waiting but he had to bow down to the spanish player as well after a 21-16, 21-12 loss. In the final it was time for the last remaining german player in the men's singels tournament, 1st seed Max Weisskirchen, in the end he proved to much for Luis that day and won in 3 sets (21-19, 12-21, 21-16). Still a very strong performance finishing 2nd and sending 4 seeded players home on his way to rhe final!
