–After Belgium Open defeat
The fine run of Nigeria’s Aruna Quadri was halted in the round of 32 of the International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF) World Tour tagged Belgium Open by Japan’s Kentaro Miuchi with the Asian winning the encounter at 4-3.
Before Quadri met his waterloo against the Japanese defender, he had defeated Slovakia’s Roman Rezetka 4-1 in the round of 64.
Despite exiting the tournament early, the Nigerian is now targeting the Portuguese Super Cup for his club, GD Toledos this weekend.
“It was painful losing to the Japanese but I must admit that I need to play more competition especially against defenders. I had put this behind me as I am looking forward to the Portuguese Super Cup against Sporting,” he said.
He added: “I am seriously looking forward to retaining the Cup having won it last year.
