The “German Giant”, also known as Clemens, had to spend Christmas in the British capital due to strict isolation rules. Clemens will start as a clear outfielder against Clayton. In the fight with the young Williams, Clemens took advantage of the fact that his opponent missed almost every opportunity on the dual domains. He was ruthless in this regard, converting six of the seven shots in the first two sets. The best German professional was able to achieve average performance over long distances to reach the next round.

Florian Hembell is still represented in the competition. After defeating Belgium’s fifth seed Dimitri van den Berg, he is in the third round and will face Australian foreigner Raymond Smith on Monday (4pm). Hembell is currently enjoying the most exciting and successful phase of his career at the World Cup. As an individual, the 31-year-old from Cologne has a lot to cut. Due to strict isolation rules, Hembell could not go home at Christmas, and he spent the romantic festival in London.

Christmas at the Blair Hotel

“Of course, this is not what you want when your son is at home, celebrating Christmas with the whole family, and you can only connect with him at maximum time,” said Hembel of the German newspaper agency. He said he would make Christmas at the Soldiers Hotel “definitely beautiful depending on the situation”. The former Second Division handball player won a stunning 3-1 win over Van Den Berg on Tuesday evening.
