A 3-0 penultimate round success in opposition to Egypt’s Ziad Elshawa and Ammar Attia secured a place in the junior boys’ team final for Filip Delincak and Adam Klaiber; the combination of Frenchman Vincent Picard and Morocco’s Salim Karam awaited.

Impressively Vincent Picard beat both Adam Klajber (11-7, 11-4, 11-4) and Filip Delincak (11-8, 11-2, 11-8) but that was the sum total of disappointments for the Slovakians; a 3-2 win and the title was the outcome. Earlier in the day in the counterpart semi-final, Vincent Picard and Salim Karam had recorded a 3-1 win when facing the Czech Republic combination of Dan Janovsky and Jan Morejs.

The top step of the podium for Adam Klajber and Filip Delincak; in the cadet boys’ team event it was the same outcome for Jakub Goldir and Kristian Uherik. At the semi-final stage they recorded a 3-0 win in opposition to partnership formed by the Czech Republic’s Matyas Lebeda and Morocco’s Kamil Leroy, before a 3-1 success was gained against Saudi Arabia’s Salem Alsuwajlem and Khalid Alshareif.

Mainstay of the success in the title decider was Jakub Goldir. He beat both Salem Alsuwajlem (11-3, 11-8, 11-9) and Khalid Alshareif (11-7, 6-11, 8-11, 11-8, 11-9), whilst sandwiched in between partnering Kristian Uherik to doubles success (8-11, 11-5, 11-4, 11-4). In the opposite half of the draw, Salem Alsuwajlem and Khalid Alshareif had posted a 3-0 semi-final win when confronting Sweden’s Kevin Brunzell and Isak Edwardsson.

Team events concluded; the individual events now start; play ends in Agadir on Sunday 16th June.
