"I took it very serious, cancelled appointments with family, trained for the better part of five days nearly only against Elf"Manuel 'Grubby' Schenkhuizen outlined his positive image of the GomTV organisers in a news item on Team EG, stating that "their player treatment, their concern that everything will run smoothly is of some of the highest quality that I've seen."
The WCG-winner also commented that is enjoying the live match broadcasts provided by Yoan 'ToD' Merlo and Kevin 'RotterdaM' van der Kooi, "I also enjoyed listening to the shoutcast of RotterDaM & ToD in other matches, like Infi against Lyn (although I think ToD should focus more on the imbalance of Human Towers than of the Blademaster)," said Grubby.
Grubby's first match of the tournament was against former-team Moon, who has been out of sorts lately with losses to Dae Hui 'FoV' Cho, Pedro 'LucifroN' Moreno Durán and more recently Sung Sik 'ReMinD' Kim.
"I feel Moon is never to be underestimated. He's one of the most accomplished players ever. Despite this, he may not be on the peak of his form now," said Grubby following the 2-1 victory against the Korean.
Grubby's victory could also be down to his serious training regime prior to the match. "I took it very serious, cancelled appointments with family, trained for the better part of five days nearly only against Elf," said Grubby, "I got help from a lot of my regular practice partners and friends, so my thanks goes to them."
