4 July 2017
: In run up to the much anticipated Ultimate Table Tennis, Indian stars Sanil Shetty who will represent Falcons T.T.C and Sathiyan Gnanasekaran who was drafted by Dabang Smashers T.T.C created an upset on Tuesday toppling their Korean and Chinese Taipei counterparts respectively in the Seamaster 2017 ITTF World Tour Platinum Australia Open at Gold Coast, Australia.

Sanil Shetty beat Korea’s Jang Woojin, the no.13 seed, (11-9, 3-11, 12-10, 11-3, 6-11, 11-8) and Sathiyan Gnanasekaran accounted for Chinese Taipei’s Chen Chien-An, the no.14 seed (11-6, 4-11, 1-11, 11-9, 11-8, 11-9). In a space of two days Falcons T.T.C.’s Sanil Shetty has beaten players who last year had won ITTF World Tour Men’s Singles titles.
