“We started well, played stone to stone in the fourth end, the stones stood under not very good for us corners. Good for us, there was a sixth end, and in the eighth (with the score 5:4 in favor of the Russians) we already had the right to be wrong. But we chose the wrong job (after which the score was equalized and the game went into extra-end). And it was necessary to do a staged shot. Apparently, the nerves played a role”, — quotes Bryzgalovo “R-Sport” .
