After being a runner up in Junior Girl’s Singles event at the European Youth Championships in Istanbul last July 2010, Dora Madarasz finally improved her standing and won the Girl’s Singles title in the 2011 Joola Hungarian Junior Open held in the north-western town of Hungary.

In recent years, the Women’s Team of Hungary has been the best TT team in Europe and a very good contender for the Asian teams. This year’s Joola Hungarian Junior Open aims to produce the best TT players their country can offer and one of them might be Dora Madarasz.

In the opening round, Dora Madarasz defeated Poland’s Maja Krzewicka in six matches 4-2 (6-11, 11-8, 12-14, 11-8, 11-8, 11-8). Such win led her to fight against Mateja Jeger of Croatia, seeded number six in four easy straight matches 4-0 (11-8, 11-9, 11-6, 11-4). In the semifinals, Dora posted a six games win against seeded number three, Sofia Polcanova of Austria.

In the finals match, Dora Madarasz, seeded number two, encountered the 16 year old girl from Romania, Bernadette Szocs. Seeded number one, Bernadette Szocs was the winner of the ITTF Junior Circuit in Czech Republic earlier this year.

After the finals match, Dora Madarasz won in five matches 4-1 (11-9, 11-3, 8-11, 11-9, 11-6). Her coach Zsuzsanna Olah said that Dora was in a very good physical condition. “I am very happy that I was able to win our tournament. I dedicate my victory to the Hungarian spectators and TT fans.” Dora smilingly concluded.
