Interview with Hampus Nordberg

How do you and your team Angers perform in the French Pro A?

My Team is performing really well. We were leading Pro A before the Christmas break, and we are in second place at the moment. We had a difficult start to the season, but we managed to come back to the top of the table. I had a tough start as well, but now my score is 6-3 which I’m happy with. Especially with my last two games after the Christmas break, I was really happy.

How do you prepare for your matches?

It is a long process. I am very accurate in my preparation for analyzing my opponents, make up my match plans, and I try to adapt my training to the following game. Simply I try to be as professional as possible.

Recently you became a father, how does it affect you?

It doesn’t affect my table tennis career, but he gave us much joy in our life. Sometimes the nights can be difficult, although he is a really calm baby. I´m looking forward to hearing his voice cheering for me in the future!

What kind of material do you use?

I use Yasaka Max Wood blade and Rakza X max. rubbers, I’m very happy with my racket. Max Wood is an all-wood blade which gives me confidence in my strokes. Rakza X has the perfect hardness for me, it fits my open game and hard forehand topspin.
