Gaston Alton (ARG) after beating Kanak Jha (USA) 4-2 in the men’s singles round of 32: “I changed my receive of service at the end of the seventh game and returned long instead of short”, said Gaston Alton. “Playing Kanak was very difficult, he’s so strong from the backhand, he kept forcing me back from the table.”

Gui Lin (BRA) after beating Jiaqi Zhang (USA) 4-2 in the women’s singles last 16: “Her short game is good, so I had to play long and keep the ball on the table. She returned my services so well, so it was important that I kept things as simple as possible and that I was patient.”

Pierre-Luc Theriault (CAN) after beating Timothy Wang (USA) 4-1 in the men’s singles round of 16: “Even though Tim is ranked higher than me I felt I should win; I felt that if I’d have lost it would have been a waste of all the effort I have made to reach the last 16 of the competition. Last September in the Men’s Team event at the North American Championships, I lost to Tim, here the crowd lifted me; also, I received service well and I was strong with my service and first attack.”
