Coach, what’s the mood of Team Italy as you approach the WJTTC? Lorenzo Nannoni: «We worked hard at the Federal Center, we believe that working hard and should pay off afterwards. We aim to compete with pride against the top national teams in the World, while looking for success with those we consider within our range».
What do you think of the World Junior Championships’ technical level? «Honestly, I still have to actually figure out the level of some of the teams – something we will definitely know more about once we’ll be facing them. Some others, they don’t even need mentioning: they are the cream of the crop in World table tennis and I’m looking forward to see how we will behave against them».
