History has just been made when our girls, Elaine Genovese and Francesca Curmi beat the more quoted Italian pair and tournament top seeds and favourites, Nuria Brancaccio and Aurora Zantetedeschi 3-6; 7-6; 11-9 in the semi final.
The Maltese girls once again showed all their fighting spirit when after losing the first set they staged a remarkable comeback and turned the tables on their higher ranked opponents who play regularly on the WTA tour. The never-say-die attitude of our athletes was again prominent and proved decisive in this epic battle. The final will be against the number 2 seeds from Spain, Jessica Bouzas Maneiro and Guiomar Zuleta and has been scheduled not before 6.00pm tomorrow. Well done girls and all Malta is proud of your achievement!
