Vincent van der Voort played against Cameron Menzies and the difference between the two players was like black and white. We have all seen it on stage but during the interview after the match Vincent van der Voort told to Dutch media he almost wanted to knock his opponent out as he kept on talking to him for hours and hours.
Vincent van der Voort: “At one point I told Graham (Tournament director) ‘You really need to tell him to stop or he will get knocked out'”.
Vincent van der Voort: “After the match on stage he said ‘I really want to hug you’ and I replied ‘I really don’t want to hug you’ haha”.
Interviewer: “It was so funny to watch, one of the highlights of the game.”
Vincent van der Voort: “Backstage I told him to shut up three times and I said ‘one more time and you can have it’, but he is a nice guy, haha.”
