Liam Pitchford gives Ovtcharov a run for his money

Liam Pitchford of England fought gallantly against top seed Dmitrij Ovtcharov of Germany in the pre-quarterfinals of the European Table Tennis Championships at Ekaterinburg but eventually lost 2-4 ( 11-4, 7-11, 8-11, 11-6, 3-11, 4-11). The match was actually balanced till the fourth game at 2-2, but Ovtcharov showed his class by beating the Englishman quite handily in the last two games.
