    The fourth set seemed to be lost. However, the Poles proved that nothing is impossible. Despite many lost points, they made up for the loss and came out on top! They thus led to a tie-break. 


    The tie-break was extremely fierce. Each team made mistakes, but it was the Turkish women who had more luck. The challenges turned out to be better for them than for the white and red team. After a great, exciting but also fierce battle, the Polish women lost to Turkey 2:3.
