Karolin Lampert was my captain in the same tournament last year; she is a great player, she plays very well with the wind and I have a lot of fun with her. We are good friends. I haven’t played with Krista in a while, but I think she’s having a great season. She has had a good run in the team event. Fourth member of the team, the amateur, has a lot of influence”.
“All the girls have very similar skills -they can all make a lot of birdies-, so their role is also important, which is quite nice. I have been very lucky with the amateurs I have competed with. I hope we have a good week; If not, I’ll still have a good time,” he added.
