Tunisia’s Sport Sfaxien never gave up


The tight defense at the net allowed Tunisia's Sportif Sfaxien to prevail against Deportivo La Romana

Betim, Brazi, October 17, 2013 – The hard serves, consistent blocking and fighting spirit were the key components for the victory of Sport Sfaxien over Deportivo La Romana in five sets. 

Samir Sellam, captain of Sportif Sfaxien: The opponents started very well winning the first two sets but then we started to serve better and could also block. We were able to find our real game because we didn’t have a good preparation prior to the tournament. We won today and the sport is like that. You have to play until the last point.

Tolinson Aquino, captain of Deportivo La Romana: The team of Tunisia never gave up and kept battling all the time. Our team slowed down and never recovered. It was a well deserved victory for them. Congratulations.

Mohamed Ben Mustapha, coach of Sportif Sfaxien: The match against the Brazilian team really prepared us for today’s game. We had enough power to win and the Dominicans looked a little bit tired at the end- After two sets we served hard and blocked consistently.

Osiel Vazquez, coach of Deportivo La Romana: I want to congratulate the team of Tunisia. They never gave up and I can’t say the same about our team. We lacked a leader for the key moments and that was an important factor.
