The hosts are ready to be part of the weekend schedule.

The opening women’s singles between Evgenia Kosetskaya and Linda Zetchiri was one of the most intense matches during the whole tournament. The Russian won the first game 21-16, while Zetchiri claimed the second 21-13.


A three-point lead for Kosetskaya in the third set was crucial for the Russian, and after 50 minutes of play she made it 1-0 for the hosting nation.

The pressure now was on Bulgarian Mariya Mitsova. For the second time over-all the Bulgarian met Russian Natalia Perminova and for the second time Perminova came out victorious. This time 21-18 7-21 21-18.

- I am so tired now. I was a very hard match, but I just so happy, that I manage to win, Perminova says.
