Tennis Serie A1, positive debut for Coach Vela: Pistoia knocked out 4-2


By John

Convincing seasonal debut for coach Vela Messina, who won 4-2 over Tc Pistoia on the red clay courts of the Viale della Libertà club. President Antonio Barbera’s team therefore immediately achieved full spoils in the A1 series championship, respecting the predictions made the day before. The successes came from the Austrian Gerald Melzer, from the Tabacco brothers, Fausto and Giorgio, and from the double Fausto Tabacco/Fabio Vasalona.
In the other intersection of group 2, Selva Alta won 4-2 against Parioli away.
