No.2 seed - Tang Peng from Hong Kong, who never won men's singles title sadly fails again, as Frenchman Simon Gauzy got his revenge for defeat in WTTC 2013 in Paris. This time Simon won 4 games to 1. To be honest, i really cheered for Tang, but it seems that Tang who is currently ranked no.14 in the world will never win men's singles title. That is just absurd.
|He got his revenge!|
Also, Tiago Apolonia from Portugal who was seed no.4 also got defeated by another Frenchman - seed no.27 - Adrien Mattenet. Adrien won 4-2. It's been a tough year for Tiago Apolonia, ever since he showed in 2014 that he could be a new threat to Chinese, and to the world, as he player matches of his life.
And last but not least upset - Patrick Baum - seed no.8 lost 4-2 to Quadri Aruna no.30 seed. We all know that Quadri Aruna is full of surprises, as he managed to go all the way to 1/4 finals of Men's World Cup 2014, where Zhang Jike struggled with Arunas mighty forehand.
