The results of the women’s teqball tournament are known. The gold medal was won by Kinga Barabasi. The 26-year-old Romanian did not lose a single set on her way to gold, and confidently beat Frenchwoman Amelie Julian in the final.
The women’s gold medal match was due to take place on Wednesday, but was hampered by rain. The final was therefore moved to Thursday and was played just before the decisive match in the men’s competition.
Both athletes therefore had plenty of time to recover and put on a real show in the final. The fans tightly filled the stands set up on the Main Square in Krakow. The teqball matches were a unique attraction on Thursday, generating interest among Cracovians and tourists alike.
By far the best players met in the final. Barabasi and Julian did not lose a single set on their way to the deciding match.
On Thursday, the Romanian kept the streak going as she once again gave her opponent no chance. The Frenchwoman made a lot of mistakes at the beginning of the match. Then she was able to bring the match to a tie-break (6:6), but her rival managed to gain confidence and did not lose it until the end.
In the end, she won 12:9, 12:6.
The bronze medal was won the day before by Nanna Kristensen. In the match for third place, the Danish woman defeated the Italian, Mara D’Alessandro.
