G. Sathiyan, after two consecutive 3-2 victories, registered a convincing straight-games win on Friday for his team Jaroslaw to maintain a perfect start to his Polish Superliga stint.
World No. 32 Sathiyan defeated Poltarex Pogon’s Adam Dosz 14-12, 13-11, 11-8 in the third and deciding singles match of the tie.
In the opening game, Sathiyan inched ahead 10-9 to set up game point. However, an unforced error helped Dosz level the score. The Chennai-born paddler was quick to recover as he saved two game points to stay alive in the game. At 12-12, a Sathiyan sent down a fierce forehand drive through the centre of the table to gain advantage once again. This time, he made no mistake in closing out the game as Dosz’s backhand return fell long after clipping off the top of the net.
