- En garde!
Another match starts, and for each game the points gets more and more important for the outcome of the tournament. Stronger feelings and louder shouting revealed the importance of today's matches.
"I understand what they are feeling", said the Turkish referee Yetkin Utku Kamuk. "I think that is very important for a referee."
"But it’s also in those situations most pressure is on us referees", says Thomas Nguyen, Canada.
"Being a referee is often a thankless job, but we try to support each other and let our colleagues know when they have done a good job", Nguyen continues.
