1. Hi, Dave, and congratulations for winning the game! You are the new world champion at table tennis. What is it like?

Well, I really describe this feeling. I'm very happy, of course. And quite confused, at the same time. At the break, my opponent had a much higher score than me and I didn't think I win the game. I still believe I be dreaming.

2. You definitely aren't dreaming. It's all real. you tell me what your plans are for the next couple of months?

I say right now. I go on a holiday, but I'm not sure yet, because my kid is starting school in September. I miss this. We go on holiday before school starts, but I have to talk to my wife first.

3. Yes, that's understandable. Dave, when did you start playing table tennis? you play it when you were a child?

Yes, I . Actually, I started playing when I was 6. My father bought table tennis equipment for Christmas that year. We play for hours and hours together. I loved it. Then, when I was 8, my father thought I become a professional one day, so he took me to a training center. This be the best thing that has ever happened to me.

4. you play other sports besides table tennis?

Yes. I play regular tennis and basketball. Five years ago, I also play football, but I haven't practised for a while..

5. I ask you, Dave, where do you see yourself ten years from now?

I think that's a simple question. I do anything else for a living. Table tennis is the only thing I do very well. So this is what I will be doing for the next ten years. Afterwards, time will tell. I open a sports center.

6. Dave, thank you for the interview and good luck!
