I played 4 regional tournaments to warm up and made 2 semifinals and a final. I went on to tie for 2nd place in the national team trial (3 players qualified) and come 4th on countback by one set. I made the top 16 in the New Zealand Open men's singles, only losing to the number 1 player in New Zealand (who has never lost to a NZ player in 4 years) and a member of the Korean Army Team.
Finally after a month of waiting I received the good news that I have been selected in the 4th spot in the national team to play Oceania Championships and World Team Championships in 2016.

I promise to repeat my efforts from China Open by giving you the best on the ground coverage from the events and I will be meeting up with many great players to hopefully provide great content.
