Brunetti Castel Goffredo secured their sixth Italian Super Cup title

Brunetti Castel Goffredo secured their sixth Italian Super Cup title, maintaining a perfect record in the event. They emerged victorious against ASV TT Südtirol with a 5-3 triumph at PalaTennistavolo "Elia Mazzi." The teams competed on two tables, with the format being the best of five singles out of nine.

The technical director of Castel Goffredo, Alfonso LAGHEZZA, who led the team with coach Robert STAMENKOVSKI, described the match as special due to the absence of Bernadette SZOCS and Andeea DRAGOMAN, currently in China for the Mixed Team World Cup.

“However, we managed to reach our goal. All the matches were well balanced. STEFANOVA had a great performance, even though in the last match she lost to BRATEYKO. She played well against VIVARELLI. She was in trouble but with her experience she managed to get through it. ARLIA was good against BRATEYKO, even beyond expectations, as the Ukraine's player is a very tough adversary. Nicole changed some tactical aspects along the way and achieved this excellent result, which was fundamental for the final win. LIN led 7-1 against BRATEYKO in the third set, then she lost and the whole story of the match changed. She had too many ups and downs. She also had some problems against VIVARELLI and in fact she lost. Tactically she doesn't always succeed in making adjustments during the matches and she is not mentally sound. Despite MONFARDINI's withdrawal, it was a very difficult challenge, because Südtirol fought a lot. We had three safe points, but we had to work hard to get the other two. We are very satisfied to win our sixth Super Cup”.
