Quarter finals WSA

Coline Aumard (FRA) - Nikki Todd (CAN) 11-9/11-6/9-11/9-11/11-8 (51 min) The strength to pressure with cross courts and precise counter drops  showed the French’s best moment while Todd seemed out of focus. The Canadian managed to get into pace in the third game and added points with successive winning shots. Nikki found her positive energy in court and forced a fifth game. The mental strength of Coline resisted continuous nicks and with a precise serve she gave the match a vibrant finish and passed to the semifinals.

Catalina Pelaez (COL) - Sarah Cardwell (AUS) 13-11/11-6/11-7 (22 min) Motivated by the crowd, the Colombian found in the first game the way to start winning with winning shots instead of unforced errors. Meanwhile the Australian was erratic and was pressured by Catalina’s volleys losing the second game with surprise cross court drops. The 2-0 cheered the crowd. In the third game the Colombia remained consistent and firm in her winning shots and advanced to the semifinal.

Samantha Teran (MEX) - Sina Wall (GER) 11-4/11-4/11-5 (20 Min) The Mexican played with solidity and strength her second match where she was more accustomed to the court. With accurate two side boasts and strong cross courts the right side corner started to wear out the German who was more imprecise and committed unforced errors due to the Mexicans pressure.

Victoria Lust, ENG - Thaisa Serafini (BRA) 14-12/11-0/11-9 (21 min) The English who started the first game playing imprecise gave in to the initiative of the Brazilian Serafini, yet gained confidence and forced a tie break taking the lead.
