Understandably, we need to be very focused and put a lot of energy into defense to limit the opponent’s productivity. Control of rhythm and rebounds will play an important role in the outcome of the race.” The first referee of tonight’s race was appointed Spanish, Juan Carlos Garcia, who will carry Amit Balak from Israel and Uros Obrknezevic from Serbia.
