Valentina Tirozzi and Juliann Faucette were the best players for URBINO in this return match.

“I think the turning point came as we fought back in the second set, since afterwards we could control the match and pocket our ticket to the final. I am proud of my players because they always deliver a great and passionate performance especially under difficult circumstances. We have a very tight schedule but we try to deliver our best as long as we are strong enough for this. I am also very happy for Floortje because she did a great job right in combination with such a key game” stressed the head coach of Yamamay, Carlo Parisi.
