I also was able to contact a few top series who have given me their ambitions in this competition:

Matilda Ekholm
My goal in Almeria is to enjoy playing and hopefully perform well. If I do that, I have chances to win.

Romain Lorentz
My goal is to win U-21 because I'm seeded No. 1 won't be easy because there are a lot of French! In the senior draw I'll try to go as far as possible trying to make the performance to progress in the global standings.

Andre Da Silva
the first and great goals is pass the group, thus qualifying me for the main draw. I hope to play the best possible table tennis and win every game waiting to get as far as possible.

Thiago Monteiro
I hope to advance as much as I can.

Caroline Kumahara
I'll give my best in all matches, I want to do everything or almost everything that I'm doing in practices sessions.

Lee Ho Ching
I hope that I can enter in semi-final.
Abdel-Kader Salidou
My goals in Spain are to enter the last four. I think it is possible because the competition is very homogeneous. So that is my goal, but first and foremost need to beat opponents that are not very far from my level of play.
