    “Do it again. Play it again. Sing it again. Read it again. Write it again. Sketch it again. Rehearse it again. Run it again. Try it again. Because again is practice, and practice is improvement, and improvement only leads to perfection.” By Richelle E. Goodrich

    With a group of three people in the final round, Tim Stephens, Nasser Alzakari and Quan Nguyen, all were ready to play every match until the end.  They each knew that one of them will be the next Equal Challenge Champion.

    How was every match?

    The first match was between Quan Nguyen and Tim Stephens with a final score of 3-1 for Quan.

    The second match was very exciting, very tight and challenging.  It was very difficult to say who would be the winner.

    Nasser Alzakari and Tim Stephens played until the end, both of them making great shots.  The pressure for both participants also played against them, especially on the high balls.  Both of them made mistakes at 10-10, 11-11 and 12-12.  At the end Nas Zakary defeated Tim Stephens with a score of 3-2.

    The 3th match was a real final.

    With one match earned each, Nas Zakary and Quan Nguyen had to decide who would be the champion for that night.

    Even the public was ready to watch the final match.

    Nasser and Quan have very similar levels and they try their best.  Forehand smashes were the favorite weapons for both of them.

    It was a very interesting match, especially in how they figure out how to place the ball in a weakness area to force a mistake and gain some points.

    At the end of the night Nasser defeat Quan with a score of 3-2.

    Congratulations Nasser for your victory and good luck next time Quan!
