This morning, I had the opportunity of watching the first set of the match China (Xue and Zhang Xi) against Georgia (Saka and Rtvelo, two Brazilians players naturalized Georgians; in men’s competition, Geor and Gia are also Brazilians and Georgians). The Chinese team formed by two young players won that match.The round of 32 for women’s competition pulls out 2 Brazilians teams: Behar and Shelda and Ana Paula and Leila. The round of 16 pulls out Brazilians Renata and Talita. In men's competition, Maia and Brenha lost, in round of 32, against Rogers and Dalhausser, by 0-2 (18-21, 18-21). This way, they finished the World Championships 2007 in 17th place, with 200 points and 7 000 dolars. Good pairs finished in 17th place, like Harley and Pedro (BRA), Brink and Dieckmann Ch. (GER), Reckermann and Urbatzka (GER), Schuil and Nummerdor (NED), Heuscher and Heyer (SUI), Laciga P. and Laciga M. (SUI) and Lambert-Metzger (USA).
New: The semi-finals of women's competition involve the 4 better teams:
Tian Jia and Wang (CHN) against Larissa and Juliana (BRA)
Walsh and May-Treanor (USA) against Xue-Zhang Xi (CHN)
