Ruben Português wins in Tires

It was a special week-end for sports fans in Portugal and not only because Rui Costa (26) became the first Portuguese rider to win the title of professional cycling world champion or because John Sousa (24) won his first ATP tennis title by beating Julien Benneteau in Kuala Lumpur.
The first WASPA tournament ever was held in Tires with 18 players taking part. It was a good event with players dropped in four groups. At the end, it was a first class final with two excellent players. Ruben Português beat Sergio Ramos on shots to win the title. Nuno Noronha and Ricardo Pavão lost in the semis.
To be noted Portugal took also the honors in the FISTF Grand Prix of Scotland on sunday as Vasco Guimaraes won the Open final. Well done to everyone involved in making this week-end a wonderful one for table football in Portugal. Special thanks to Paulo Elias and his friends for asking the WASPA status for the Tires tournament.
