„KIampár’s play is like a chess player’s - inscrutable ”- said Surbek,
the Yugoslavian European Champion. And really, a flashing time is
enough for him to strike the ball either with forehand or backhand
from the wrist, and he was capable of unsurpassed sequences,
It was not accidental that the Asians, whom he had beaten many
times, were afraid of him. He won the Hungańan national
championship in singles 11 times.
