Luca Vanni in Sao Paulo

Interview by Riccardo Crivelli in the 15 February 2015 print edition of  La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“I’m in a dream,” said Luca Vanni after his win over Joao-Olavo Souza in São Paulo, Brazil.

“These are emotions I’ll never forget, especially when it wasn’t easy playing with the entire crowd against me.

“I’ve always been told that without bad luck I could have been top 50, but right now I’m extremely happy being in the top 100 and maybe go higher. That was the goal for this year.”
