Christo Popov’s Strong Start in Paris: A Look at the BWF Super 750 Tournament

Christo arrived this Sunday shortly before 10:30 p.m. at the hotel where the Popov delegation had taken place a few hours earlier. An establishment located a stone’s throw from the new “Adidas Arena”, the new playground for Parisian Betclic Elite basketball players.

A guard of honor from his entire team awaited Christo Popov. A radiant boy after his incredible German week. A victory on a Super 300, a successful performance, for the record, without his usual equipment (and with his warm-up rackets, although a little heavier), which were lost by the airline on his return from the championships. Team Europe last month and still not recovered since. This act I of the European tour should allow him to get closer to the top 16 in the world at the “Race to Paris” and to overtake his brother Toma Junior Popov in the world rankings which will be made official this Tuesday. “We are focusing on the last five competitions which can propel us both very far in singles and doubles. We will see on April 28 who will be qualified or not“, confides the eldest of the siblings. The Games are not done.

Act II in Paris began this Monday with a host of requests for the only two French players present in the men’s singles table. Toma Junior and his brother Christo continued their meetings in front of the media this Monday without neglecting the competition and this Super 750 in the capital. On the menu, a strong first round against Yu Qi Shi for Christo Popov, a Chinese in great shape, world No.2, who remains on a victory in India and a finalist place in the Super 1000 in Malaysia, while an Indonesian Kean Yew Loh will be offered this Tuesday to Toma Junior, N.12 on the bad planet.

Two brothers who will have to be at their best. The training sessions this Monday before the match took on their full meaning in a room that the entire bad planet will discover: the benchmarks, the sensations… “We couldn’t wait to discover this new room. For the moment the first sensations are quite good although this will of course depend on the competition shuttlecocksconfie Christo Popov. The conditions are neither too fast nor too slow but it will be a question of adaptation as in all rooms.“And if the sensations can be as good as in Germany, it would be ideal for Christo Popov. The French champion also counts for him having already dominated Yu Qi Shi last year in China…
