19-årige Truls Möregårdh förlorade VM-finalen i bordtennis i Houston i USA med 4–0 i set. Världsettan Fan Zhendong från Kina blev för svår för skrällsvensken.

Jag förlorade inte ett guld, utan har vunnit ett silver, säger skrällsvensken.

Fan Zhendong fick snabbt en 3–0 ledning. I fjärde set gick Möregårdh upp till 7–3 och hoppet om att kunna ta sig in i matchen väcktes, men kinesen visade varför han är världsetta och vände setet till seger 11–8.

– Jag tyckte att jag spelade okej ändå, säger 19-åringen till SVT och fortsätter:

– Jag visste att jag var tvungen att satsa mer än i de andra matcherna. Han spelar så sjukt hårt och sätter press på mig.

Möregårdh, rankad 77:a i världen inför VM, tog sig överraskande till sin första final i ett seniormästerskap efter att ha besegrat den tyske veteranen Timo Boll i semifinalen.

Att ta sig till VM-final ser han som en seger i sig.

– Att komma till VM-final när man är 19, det är ju fantastiskt. Jag är jätteglad, säger han till SVT.

Nu väntar silverfirande.

– Jag ska åka hem och fira med min familj, fira silvermedaljen. Ha kul med mina vänner, berättar han för publiken i intervjun efter matchen.

Silvret är det andra raka svenska VM-silvret i herrsingel, då Mattias Falck tog silver 2019. Ingen svensk har vunnit guld i herrsingel sedan Jan-Ove Waldner 1997.

Tidigare under kvällen tog Mattias Falck och Kristian Karlsson guld i dubbel, det första på 30 år.
