    Artacho and Sadler lost a close match, 23-25, 17-21

    Jen and Maria Fe would be about 3 years under age for this event wouldn’t they?

      I’m pretty sure Sadler and Artacho are both U/17 (I think I saw them playing at AJVC), so turning 16 this year.

      Correct me if I’m wrong.

        The girls are both 16 but none the less brilliant players and I wish them both the very best!! Good luck girls.

    Haha! Now the boys come back and beat the 5th seeded Italians (told you they should have been seeded 2) 2-1 (21-18, 19-21 and 15-11)

    Huge and Smith just need to get over the winless Japanese to go through to the next round.
