Lea Cvetnic (Valsabbina Brescia)- “Tonight it was important to score as many points as possible – he commented at the end of the game – I risked as much as possible, especially on serve, to help the team achieve their goal. In the next few days we must not underestimate anyone and the really difficult and difficult matches will come in the next few weeks”.
