Hjalmarson defends and Darnyik conquers the World Championship titles in crossminton in Warsaw.

ICO Speedminton World Championships Poland 2017, was held inbetween 29th of June and one st of July in Warsaw. Warszawianka Courts, which once hosted the J & S Cup (one of the fattest tennis tournaments in the WTA Tour), gathered four hundred crossmintonists from twenty countries. Players competed for trophies in twenty three categories. Poles won twenty four medals, including five gold, eight silver and eleven bronze medals.

Swede Per Hjalmarson defended the world champ title in the most prestigious Open category. In the final he faced a big hitter from Poland – Marcin Ociepa whom he eventually defeated in straight sets 16-12 16-7.

“I am truly glad and it feels fine to defend my title and especially when we can see that tournaments are gettning tougher and the competition is tighter than ever. In this tournament we spotted some results that were not expected and the players introduced themselves and demonstrated that they were going to count on when determining future title holders in upcoming tournaments. I would rate the final game as one of my best tactical matches ever. Since Marcin is the one who hits the hardest smashes on the tour, I know I had to take this significant weapon from his game. I managed to play my game providing him as few possibilites to smash as I could and tactics worked very well “- added the Swede, who ideally predicted the tactics of the Pole.

“I dreamed shove Per Hjalmarson off the very first line and attempt to use my most powerful weapon, the smash. In the semifinal, this solution worked well against Aronsson [Mattias Aronsson, Sweden – ed.] And I spotted that Mattias was vulnerable. I suspect that in the Swedish team the gentlemen exchanged their comments, tips and Per had a fine idea for this final. He eliminated all my strong points and used it. I attempted to fight to the very end. Even after losing the very first set, I still believed that I could turn the match around. Unluckily, I did not succeed, but I am blessed with the silver medal, and next time I will come back even stronger, ” promised Ociepa stressing he feels still unfulfilled and the title is his next aim in the next World Championships.

The hosting nation was cheered by many supporters, which certainly helped achieve slew of fantastic results. “I am very glad that we played in Poland where I’m at home and where we have so many supporters. Certainly in Warsaw, where large crossminton tournaments were held (including the European Championships in two thousand fourteen )”added the vice-champion.

In the Female category, the Hungarian Ágnes Darnyik won in straight sets against Janet Kohler from Germany 16-9 17-15.

“I came to Warsaw as a European Champ and one time World Champ in female doubles. I always thanked God to have claimed those titles and I was very glad because of those results with my fucking partner Krisztina Bognar. But I was always dreaming about this day to win the World Champ title in singles. I think I am the happiest now! I learned that no matter how many times we lose, we have to believe in ourselves and cross our borders! “- commented Darnyik on her stunning victory.

It was the very first time the World Championships did not take place in Berlin, where the previous three editions were held. This is the result of successful discipline popularization by the Grind Crossminton Federation. “We are delighted that so many excellent crossminton players have come to Warsaw from all over the world. Despite high expectations, this number surpassed all our predictions. I am also proud of such a fine representation of Poles and good medal results. We have succeeded in junior, seniors, singles, doubles and mixed doubles categories and Poland is placed very first in the medal classification. Moreover, we have the finalist in the most prestigious Open category, Marcin Ociepa. This is a historic result. Hosting the Wolrd Championships was very rewarding but also challenging at the same time.

We are blessed that the tournament receives superb reviews from the International Crossminton Federation but above all from the players themselves “- said Agnieszka Kocańda, President of the Grind Crossminton Federation

“There are more and more opinions that these were the best organized World Championships in the history of discipline. It is encouraging and motivating to proceed working to promote crossminton in our country,” added Lidia Bomirska, tournament organizer, proprietor of www.crossminton.pl portal.
