Even if tennis is an individual sport, being a team in such team competitions, combatting as a team and being aware of representing our team and school have always become prominent. We believe we are one of the good examples of being a team with our stance and character. Each of us come out on the court to win and combat till the last ball for each other and our school. We have proved all these in this tournament. We have become the champion without losing any set to our rivals. We are a great but also a humble team. These are the essential and significant balances that bring us the success. I sincerely thank Mr. Levent Uysal, the Founder of Nişantaşı Educational Foundation, Vahit Baylan, the Head of Health, Clture and Sports, our trainer Deniz Kıyak and my teammates, Altuğ Çelikbilek, Cengiz Aksu, Onur Kargın, Mert Alkaya, Osmancan Söyler and Anıl Gündüz for their supports. Now it’s time for Europe”, sharing his happiness for being the champion.
