Suhas Lalinakere Yathiraj Ends Lucas Mazur’s Reign

In the SL4 men’s singles semifinal, Suhas Lalinakere Yathiraj defeated reigning champion Lucas Mazur to advance to the finals. Yathiraj’s determination to defeat Mazur stemmed from his loss to him in the Tokyo 2020 final. Yathiraj shared, “Because of the draws, I’ve not had the opportunity to play him the last few years. Because he’s very good at steep shots, I sparred with partners who were of the same height and did special drills to ensure I’d be able to defend against players like him. We have a bittersweet rivalry.”

Celebrating Sweet Revenge

Yathiraj’s victory over Mazur was a moment of sweet revenge for the Indian player. Yathiraj explained, “It’s sweet revenge. And that’s why I just let my emotions out after the last point. The celebration wasn’t planned.” His joyous celebration underscored the significance of his win.
