Monteiro sees off Takahashi

Romania’s Daniela Dodean Monteiro was in a sparkling touch today as she took care of Bruna Takahashi in stunning form, seeing off the Brazilian 4-2 (6-11, 11-4, 11-4, 10-12, 11-4, 11-4).

Monteiro’s compatriot Arina Singeorzan was sadly not as fortunate on the day, as she found herself losing out to Netherlands’ Britt Eerland 4-1 (11-7, 11-5, 8-11, 11-8, 11-4).

Lisa exits, so does Wang

Belgium’s Lung Lisa suffered a straight games defeat to Romanian Adina Diaconu, who was very efficient in her 3-0 (11-7, 11-8, 11-9) win which takes her to the semi-finals.

Over at table 5 of the Casal Vistoso, USA’s Amy Wang was unable to make her lead count as she lost out to Belarus’ Daria Trigolos 3-1 (7-11, 11-5, 11-9, 11-5).

Brave effort needed as Pistej/Balazova come through

Slovakians Lubomir Pistej with Barbora Balazova needed a strong effort on their part to come back from 1-2 down and win against Belgian’s Laurens Devos with Lung Lisa.

In a match lasting 33 minutes, Pistej and Balazova finally won 3-2 (11-6, 12-14, 6-11, 15-13, 11-5) with a brave and determined workrate around the table.

Good start for Yuan/Lebesson

It’s a good start to the day for Yuan Jia Nan with Emmanuel Lebesson as they coasted to a win against Belarus’ Aliaksandr Khanin with Daria Trigolos (11-5, 11-5, 11-6).

Similarly for Brazil’s Vitor Ishy with Bruna Takahashi, it was strong opening win over Chilean duo Juan Lamadrid with Paulina Vega (11-3, 11-9, 6-11, 11-7).
