Bajada wins in Messina
Maltese international table tennis player Daniel Bajada produced one of his best performances to date on Saturday afternoon to help his Serie B1 side ASD Fiaccola register a surprise 5-3 away win against current runners up TT Top Spin Messina.
Fielding a rather depleted side due to injuries, ASD Fiaccola could not have had a better start to their second round commitments as Bajada managed to win all of his three encounters.
Currently ranked 149th, Bajada first beat Daniele Rizzo (no. 161) 3-1 and then went on to beat Giuseppe Quartuccio (no. 244) 3-2. In his final match Bajada once again registered a narrow 3-2 victory against Salvatore Moncada (no. 109).
ASD Fiaccola are now in joint fourth place on eight points and face Astra Valdina at home in their next assignment on Saturday.
