Fifteen out of these encounters JUN Mizutani, Joao MONTEIRO, Alexander SHIBAEV, Grigoriy VLASOV and Andrey BESHAPOSHNIKOV won 4:0. But, reigning champion Fakel Gazproma Orenburg played without its best trio Dimitrij OVTCHAROV, Vladimir SAMSONOV, Alexey SMIRNOV (instead them played Fedor KUZMIN, Denis IVONIN and Sergey ANDRIANOV, as UMMC`s head coach Tatiana KUTERGINA stressed for the website of its club:

“We won and we are fine, but we had significantly easier job, bearing in mind that Orenburg arrived in Serpukhov with its second team. The World Championships will start at the end of this month, thus players are focused on that event. I am very happy that UMMC members showed that they will be in good shape for the upcoming championship”

The Super Final of the Russian Premier League will be held at the end of May. Players will have enough time to rest after the QOROS 2015 World Table Tennis Championships in Suzhou (April 26th – May 3rd).
