Zangylos wins a big one in Cyprus

There was a very strong field of 20 players for the first WASPA tournament of the year 2014 in Limassol (Cyprus). There were representatives of four clubs including the new side of "Erimi Limassol". The group stage was played in six groups. The barrages round didn't give any surprise but it's was the beginning of Xristofis Hatzikipris's excellent run. He beat Sofoklis Mougis in suddend eath before beating Marios Themistokleous on shots in the quarter-finals to reach the final 4 for the very first time. He couldn't do much against Giorgos Zangylos at this stage of the tournament though. The other semi-final was another family derby between the Kalopsidiotis brothers with Marcos beating Kostas in sudden death. The final was open but Giorgos Zangylos finally took the honors, beating Marcos Kalopsidiotis (3-1) to claim his 11th WASPA title.
