Hu Melek Captures Mediterranean Games Women’s Singles Title

Turkey’s 20 year old Hu Melek, a player who is establishing herself on the international scene, won the Women’s Singles title in the table tennis events at the Mediterranean Games in the Italian town of Pesara on Wednesday 1st July 2009.




At the final hurdle, she accounted for Li Xue of France in four straight games, having earlier in the proceedings recorded a six games win over the more experienced Wenling Tan Monfardini of Italy in the quarter-finals and Aikaterini Ntoulaki of Greece in the semi-finals.
