21-Jul, start time: 21.07, end time: 22.20 - Attendance: 800
The USA team won the all American match
Phipps & co. have had a difficult first set because young Cuban players have shown their good skills for the future.
It's been a very equilibrate first set until up to 21-21 then Phipps and Tom have done their job: powerful smashes.
The second set saw above all the central Scott: she has stopped a lot of times the Cuban smashes.
In the third and the last set Yoshida's team has won easily with a considerable gap and they won their first match of this tournament.
