Kiwis Advance to Top 814 Sep 2018
Last match of pool play for the NZ team was against 10th seeds Japan to decide who would make the quarterfinals.
First on court was number 1 Joelle King who got things off to a great start for the team with a solid 3-0 win. Next on was number 3 Kaitlyn Watts. She got off to a good start taking a tight first game but couldn’t quite sustain the momentum and went down 3-1 but not without a fight. In the deciding match number 2 Amanda Landers-Murphy raced away with the first game before her opponent bounced back in the 2nd to make it 1 all. Amanda then dominated the 3rd and 4th to take a 3-1 win and seal the quarterfinal spot for the team.
