Italy wins the Barcelona'15 Beach Tennis World Championship
The Italian national team beat Belarus in a much disputed final. The Belarus national team, which only joined the international federation this year, has been the revelation in this championship. This is the first competition the team has played as member of the IFBT. Belarus beat Italy 9-4 in the men's final. However, it was Italy who won the women's. In mixed category, Stefano Casadei and Stefania Carsetti defeated the Belarus Eduard Biaskosty and Volha Predushanka 9-7 in the tie break. Portugal and the US were third in the Nations Tournament. The Catalan team did not go through the quarter finals and could not repeat last year's success.
