“We were playing our first match of our last cycle and we are happy we got maximum points."In the next four games we are still expected to get probably a minimum of nine points‚ which will make us to be very happy with the cycle.“It would be nice to get 15 points. But our focus is more on that process [cycle], more than focusing on what the log table [looks like].”
