“We knew from the beginning I could play, but I had strong treatment, with pool and physiotherapy, and put in my head that I would recover and be able to help the team. Today, I could play and and everything went well” said RJX‘s setter.
“It was an important step, but we must be prepared for all the difficulties, because we know that they can surprise any opponent. We have to stay focused” Santos said.
