Thrilling rallies on wet ground in the last game of the day. In the fight for second place in the preliminary round group A, Austria and Switzerland play a amazing game in the first set. At the decisive moment, the bronze medal winner of the last World Championship is smarter and takes the lead. In the second round Tanja Bognar attracts attention with her service for Switzerland. While Austria made unfortunate mistakes, Switzerland came second in Group B.
Celina Traxler (SUI): Of course, it was difficult to play because of the wet conditions, but I think we did a good job. Austria did too. It’s always hard to play against the home team because of the cheering audience. However, it’s great to have won this match.
Katharina Lackinger (AUT): We weren’t surprised by the wet court, because we did our warm-up on a wet court as well. We played well, unfortunately, we lost in the end.
