Sydney, Australia, March 8, 2019 – Greek pair Vasiliki Arvaniti and Panagiota Karagkouni are on a four-match winning streak at the FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour Sydney 3-star.

Arvaniti and Karagkouni topped Pool F with a 2-1 (17-21, 21-17, 15-9) win over China’s Lin Meimei and Zeng Jinjin, following their two victories in the qualification round and their stunning triumph against the United States’ Kerri Walsh Jennings and Brooke Sweat in first round of pool play on Thursday.

“Kerri is the best player in the world and we respect her a lot,” Arvaniti said. “We played without fear against her team yesterday. It was a great start for us in pool play by beating a great team.

Against the young Chinese pair, the Greek duo counted on their experience to come up with a victory in the third set.

“It was really great because we won our pool,” Karagkouni said. “We were nervous because they were young, free and they had nothing to lose. We came from qualification and had momentum, but I think at the last moment of this match, it was our experience that counted.”

“You have to use the wind and know how to deal with difficult conditions on the court, otherwise you will be in trouble,” Arvaniti added. “We will try to keep our good control and play tactical, and play the best we can.”
