SWITZERLAND v JAPAN
AUSTRALIA v SOUTH AFRICA
The 9th to 12th place Round Robin got under way with two entertaining matches.
Alexandra Fuller eased through the first two games against Cindy Merlo, but the South African needed five match balls to ensure the contest wasn’t extended. Cheyna Wood and Lizelle Muller rounded off an ultimately emphatic win.
The Australia/Japan match was fiercely contested in the opening two matches, Satomi Watanabe and Riga Sugamoto both winning in four to give Japan the win, but Jess Turnbull pulled one back for the Aussies.
The teams meet again tonight, in different combinations …
