Victors in opposition to Argentina, the no.2 seeds, in their opening fixture, Canada recorded a 3-2 win against Chile to secure first place in the group.

Against Argentina the backbone of the success had been Jeremy Hazin, he had accounted for both Nicolas Galvano (7-11, 11-7, 11-13, 11-6, 11-8) and Gaston Alto (8-11, 11-7, 11-5, 2-11, 11-9); facing Chile it was exactly the same scenario. He overcame Manuel Moya (8-11, 11-8, 11-7, 11-6) and Gustavo Gomez (11-8, 11-8, 7-11, 11-8).

Furthermore, just as when facing Argentina he had set the scene for Edward Ly to seal the victory; he did the same in opposition to Chile, he overcame Manuel Moya (11-6, 11-9, 11-9).

End of road

Defeat for Chile, it meant the end of the road; for Canada a semi-final place, for Argentina a quarter-final berth. Alas for Argentina there was to be no penultimate round place, a 3-2 defeat was the outcome against the United States trio of Kanak Jha, Nikhil Kumar and Zhang Kai.

A quarter-final exit for Argentina, it was the same for Paraguay, represented by Marcelo Aguirre, Santiago Osorio and Axel Gavilan. After, recording a 3-2 win against Ecuador’s Alberto Miño, Diego Piguave and Emiliano Riofrio to reserve second place, they experienced a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Puerto Rico’s Daniel Gonzalez, Brian Afanador and Angel Naranjo.

At the semi-final stage, Puerto Rico face Canada; the United States opposes Brazil’s top seeded outfit of Vitor Ishiy, Eric Jouti and Gustavo Tsuboi, the trio having the previous day reserved first place in their group.

Progress to semi-finals

Meanwhile, in the women’s team event, Brazil’s Caroline Kumahara, Bruna Takahashi and Jessica Yamada, who had recorded a 3-1 win against the no.2 , seeds, Puerto Rico’s Adriana Diaz, Melanie Diaz and Daniely Rios, concluded their initial phase fixtures in style. They claimed a 3-0 win in opposition to Canada’s Huang Hui, Sophie Gauthier and Joyce Xu. Puerto Rico duly finished in second place.

Progress for the United States and Chile, in the corresponding group, the United States represented by Amy Wang, Crystal Wang, Wu Yue and Lily Zhang gained first place ahead of Chile.
