Manuela Maleeva debuts ( Republican Champion)

In the women's event it is a fact that the girls dominate. On her way to the title, the last year's champion A. Velchev upset Christova 6-4 6-2. The other finalist M. Kondova easily upset B. Stoilova.

The public followed with a great interest the match between the 12 year old Manuela Maleeva and the veteran B. Borisova, both playing for CSKA. The girl's champion demonstated not only aggressive and more tactical play, but also a psychical strength, not typical for her age.

That makes us optimists - we do have talents. We wish that we see them not only winners in Bulgaria, but successful abroad as well.
