Sebastian Chevallier and Mats Kovatsch are a new team for 2013
and made their first FIVB appearance together at the Fuzhou Open
before finishing ninth at the Shanghai Grand Slam. Since then, they
haven’t had the greatest preparation for the World Championships
following an injury to Kovatsch. Chevallier played with Alexei Prawdzic
at the Corrientes Grand Slam finishing 25
th
before reaching the last
four of the World Cup Final with Philip Gabathuler. Chevallier and
Kovatsch didn’t play at The Hague but Chevallier did play in Rome
with Prawdzic where they finished ninth. This is Chevallier’s second
FIVB Beach Volleyball World Championships after he played at Rome
2011
alongside Sascha Heyer, who was also his partner at the London
2012
Olympic Games. The pair also won bronze at the 2012 Rome
Grand Slam and the 2011 Prague Open. The 23-year-old Kovatsch
played at two FIVB U21 World Championships before he made his
first senior FIVB appearance at the 2012 Stare Jablonki Grand Slam.
