Doha: Qataris Ahmed Khalil Al Mohannadi and Mohamed Abdulwahhab have qualified for the men’s doubles at the World Table Tennis Championships in Houston, United States, next month.
The Qatari duo have taken a big step forward in the ITTF rankings, thanks to their gold medal at the Arab Table Tennis Championships in Jordan and their results at the WTT Star Contender held in Lusail last month.
Moreover, Abdulwahhab made history by beating Indonesian Fikri Faqih Fadilah in the round of 16 of the Asian Table Tennis Championships on Sunday. He became the first Qatari and Arab player to qualify for the round of 16 of the continental event. Abdulwahhab, however, lost to Indian Sharath Kamal Achanta 3-0 in his next match.
