Unfortunately the quarterfinals are as far as Selena and I will go this World Championships. We agreed that we went out there today to win.
If we hit our top level, we are hard to beat for any pair in the world. But today the Chinese world numbers 2 were just too good.
They started out super aggressive, I guess they didn't like us beating their teammates yesterday!;) We kept on fighting and got our game going, but it wasn't enough.
Still we are satisfied with our result. It's not bad to be with the best 8 of the world. Also important is that we receive a lot of good points for the Olympic qualification, our big goal. But what I am most proud of is how we fought our way trough the first two tricky matches. We didn't always play well, but kept our heads cool and fought our way through together. It shows that we are on the right way.
Now I'll rest a bit and then our focus will be on the upcoming tournaments in Japan and Korea.
Itís so great to play in this arena, gives me goose bumps everytime.
Thanks everyone for all the nice messages I got yesterday and today. It's amazing to feel all of your positivity and support. Thanks!
