'It would not be fair to criticize this new system is the game, but the truth is it's a bit boring to be waiting for the announcement every 15 minutes. Try to give my best in the main competition, hopefully the wind better these days, 'said Albert Pijoan.

Victor Fernandez , the number two in the world and one of the favorites of the championship, had to be very patient, as his round was canceled for the second time.
