Interview with Pär Gerell

I had the opportunity to interview a left-handed player number 98 in the world, Pär Gerell, licensed in the French club of Chartres. Thanks to him who has answered all my questions with great interest.

I was 7 years old and one good friend took me to the table tennis hall and i liked the sport directly..

2.     What was your first club?
My first club was Dänningelanda BTK, in Växjö ,Sweden. I played there until iwas 17 years old, then i changed to Falkenbergs BTK.

3.     What blade and rubbers do you use?
I use STIGA calibra lt on forehand, boost tc on backhand and wood is Rosewood VII.

4.     What is your best world ranking?
I was 34 in 2010.

5.      When and where was it your best match?

I have to say Waldner and Persson.. Also Appelgren is a player i was watching much when i was young because is little bit the same style as mine.
