  • Description

    The second day of the 33rd World Table Tennis Championships in Calcutta, India on Friday (7 February), was a day of mixed fortunes for Sweden, the defending champion, in the men's championships.

    Starting the day, Sweden scored a resounding 5-2 success over France. But later they went down to a surprise 5-3 defeat by Czechoslovakia.

    As the result, Czechoslovakia moved into second place behind the Soviet Union, with Sweden slipping to third place.

    In one of the matches, the world's second-ranked player, Kjell Johansson of Sweden, played Jacques Secretin of France. But it was Secretin who stole the limelight with his style -- leaping into the air for his harder smashes.

    In a crucial match in the women's singles, Sweden's Ann Christin Hellman played Hungary's Beatrix Kishazi. The keenly contested match ended with Miss Kishazi winning two sets to one.
