A broad field will compete for the title in the men’s I singles. All the previous individual world champions will be competing here.
Hamid Ezzat-Ahmadi, Ilya Rozenblat (both USA) and Holger Teppe (Germany) have won in Pleasantville in 2019, where a different class division was used. Then in 2021 in Berlin, Thorsten Flues from Germany dominated, who could not start in 2022 due to Corona. Ilya Rozenblat took the chance and defeated Norbert Hase (Germany) in the final in Pula, who had also been in the final in 2021. As third from Pula, John Hughes from England is expected in the front field again this time.
Peter Derheld from Germany and Premysl Kouril from the Czech Republic also made a good impression in 2022 and are not to be underestimated. Andre Abend from Germany and Roland Wimmer from Austria will take part for the first time. Both could cause a surprise. Nevertheless, there are indications that the last two world champions Thorsten Flues and Ilya Rozenblat will contest the singles final this time. They are also the only players who have already won three titles at the previous World Championships.
