"I want to compete against the best, when the prize money is high and everyone is at the starting line.
That is what the PTO offers, so the PTO Asian Open is an opportunity for me to perform and as I have said many times in my life, I love to win and I hate to lose.".
For its part, Max neumann, winner of the PTO European Open in Ibiza, is also up for the challenge:
"The victory in Ibiza was the biggest of my career, so having another chance in Singapore to compete against the best in the world is what I want.

It's something you have to learn, I haven't competed since Ibiza and doing a solid training block in Australia, something similar to what I did before winning in Ibiza".
