Africa’s pride and number one Tennis player, Aruna Quadri has expressed satisfaction at what he has achieved this season ending after his ouster at the World Table Tennis Cup Final in Singapore on Monday.
The Nigerian had lost 1-3 (6-11, 11-6, 8-11, 4-11) to world number four table tennis player, Hugo Calderano of Brazil to draw the curtain to a great week of great tennis from Aruna.
The 32-year-old had reached the last eight of the World Table Tennis Championship in Houston a week ago emerging as the first African tennis player to reach that height.
The feat moved him four places in the world ranking from 17th place to 13th place, a situation which earned the Oyo born an invitation to join the best 16 players in the world in the maiden edition in Singapore.
Aruna therefore has no regrets, but satisfaction when asked of how he feels about his achievements these couple of weeks after his game against Calderano.
“It means a lot to Africa, Nigeria, my fans and family. To have been invited for top 16 is a lot. I am very happy and satisfied.” Quadri said.
He stated that his “objective is to do much more better than this year next year.”
