Margaryta PESOTSKA, silver medalists from the 2009 European Championships in Stuttgart at age of 18 and bronze medalists from the European Championships in Gdansk-Sopot is seeded no. 12 at the forthcoming 2015 NN Table Tennis Club ITTF – Europe Top 16 in Baku.
PESOTSKA is very cautious regarding her current shape

“It is difficult for me to comment my current shape. I had problems with knee. In past two months I missed competitions. Now I am working very hard to regain my strength and to come back. I am practice hard and I hope to be ready for Top 16,” stated PESOTSKA, who was only 16 years old when she secured the ticket for the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing.

Margaryta play for club Rodina from city of Arhangelsk. My next competition is in Russia. I will play in national league and then I will directly fly to Baku. Currently we are placed at position no. three at the standings, but there is a long way to go before play off.”

What do you think about adversaries in Baku? “Everyone play very good, and the level is very high. I think each of us will fight and try to win, there will be no easy matches. Every girl in Baku can win the title. It is very specific competition,” said Margarita, who will play at TOP 16 for a second time. ”I was not playing for two months, so I have not met any of them except HU Melek, so I can not comment their shape. I played against HU in Russia’s League and lost 1:3.”
