Round 3 of 2015/16 European Champions League Women concluded by 3:2 win of French club. Daniela MONTEIRO-DODEAN won two matches
French club TT Saint Quentin wrote down its very first win in the 2015/16 ECLW, beating at home Bursa Buyuksehir Belediyespor 3:2. It was the duel of the teams who lost their games in the previous two rounds, both from top seed TTC Berlin Eastside. Hence the last round in Turkey (December 18th), between these two rivals, should be decisive for the second place in Group A which provides quarter-final spot.
Daniela MONTEIRO-DODEAN had a successful return to the ECLW, as she took two points for the host side. Former Castel Goffredo and STROCK player defeated first Sibel REMZI in straight games, and, what is more important, managed to level on 2:2 in the fourth clash against Polina MIKHAILOVA. Game between MONTEIRO-DODEAN and MIKHAILOVA, bronze medalist from recent 2015 LIEBHERR ITTF ECH at Ekaterinburg, was so intense and close, stretched to full distance. After all, it was ended by the minimal two points margin.
Ran LI KATH secured victory for French club in the latest, fifth encounter. She easily beat Sibel REMZI.
