21-18 and 21-12, here are the Australian Nathalie Cook and Tamsin Barnett projected in the 1st place of their pool and in very good place to qualify. However at the the first set, Cristine Santana " Saka" and Andrezza Chagas had put the pressure on the Australian ones with especially a play in effective defense.
But Australian team applies ball in ball and about the middle of the set passes at the head to leave the georgians to 3 points more until the end of the 1st set.
At the beginning of the 2nd set we saw a very good start of Cristine and Andrezza which accept responsibility for the play with a very good anticipation of Andrezza in defense and Cristine which without making winning block obliges the Australian to take risks with attacks and here is Georgia carrying out of 3 points with one 10-7 deserved.
But here is that Tamsin connects a series of very good services with Ace in premium which brings the Australian ones to height of the georgiennes.
After there did not really have a match since " Nat" and " Tam" speed superior passes and leaves on the spot the georgians especially thanks to a very effective service and Nat Cook in great shape.

The 2nd set total change of aspect since the Brazilian ones more relaxed a little carry out the debates rather easily and gain the set without too much difficulty 21-12. To thus remain to play the tie break to separate Brazil and Russia and there one was not disappointed.
On the 2 sides the tension intensify with a play equalizes punctuated very beautiful points and incredible errors. Here are Brazilian and Russians who play tight until 13-13 and one needed an error of service of Natalia Uryadova and Kong Block of Ana Paula to give the victory to Brazil.
Second difficult victory for Ana Paula and Larissa but let us forget that there is 1 week the 2 players had never played together. This is a pair on which it will be necessary to count as far as the adjustments start to give some results.
For the little story, Larissa does not shout any more on her partner… It's true that there she plays with one of the most titrated players of World Beach volleyball.
