«We all know, sportsmen that we are, how bad it is to be carried off court on a stretcher. I don’t know what happened to Gentile – I hope that it’s nothing serious and we want to see him back on as soon as possible. As far as the game goes, I can say that we are happy. First of all, for the two points because we really needed it, and then for the way we played. We played an excellent game, which was extraordinary from many points of view – we concretised some good ideas, played with great determination and were focused on court. We didn’t suffer much on the rebounds but missed too many balls and that’s why it was hard right up to the end. I’m happy that we won and that was without even using the newcomer. We will soon put him on but, having won without having him on court, adds even more value to our victory».
