GACINA and PETEK champions in Croatia


National Championships of Croatia

 

Andrej GACINA and Petra PETEK are the single`s winners at the National Championships of Croatia, held in the city of Sveti Martin. Men`s Singles top seed GACINA, player of Russian club UMMC, won all his matches till the final in straight games, but he lifted the trophy without playing final encounter, as his opponent Tomislav PUCAR was forced to withdraw due to injury.

 

„I feel sorry because of this situation and I wish him (PUCAR) to have a fast recovery and comeback“, stated Andrej GACINA about PUCAR who suffered an injury in the final of Men`s Doubles event.

 

GACINA took his first title after three years (in last two he didn`t participate). Last year`s champion Frane KOJIC was beaten by PUCAR in straight games of the semi-final.

 

Regarding Women`s Singles, Petra PETEK repeated her achievement from 2016. Like two years ago in Varazdin, she won two gold medals, taking also Women`s Doubles crown together with Ivana MALOBABIC.
