Clutch game spells victory for Seidl and Waller

Austria's Robin Seidl and Philipp Waller played clutch to earn two wins in the 2018 FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour Qinzhou 3-star main draw
Qinzhou, China, October 1, 2018 – Austria’s Robin Seidl and Philipp Waller made a clutch finish to earn double victories on the first day of the main draw competition of the FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour Qinzhou 3-star on Monday.

The Haiyang 3-star winners started with a 2-0 (21-17, 21-14) win over Japan’s Katsuhiro Shiratori and Takashi Tsuchiya, then thrived once more with a tactical finish against Australia’s Christopher McHugh and Zachery Schubert 2-0 (21-19, 23-21).

“It’s an Olympic qualification tournament so everyone is fighting,” Seidl said. “No match is easy and it’s really a fight to the end. I’m lucky we were able to win it in two (sets). The other team wanted to fight so hard and they didn’t see the holes, I saw it and I used it against them.”
