Korea and Japan victorious on first day

Seoul, Korea, July 1, 2005 - The opening day's action in Seoul on Friday has been completed with world number eight Korea surprisingly being taken to five sets in beating a youthful looking USA side 3-2 (25-23, 13-25, 21-25, 25-15, 15-13) while Japan continued their impressive form by collecting their third win in four matches with a 27-25, 25-22, 25-17 win over the Dominican Republic, who are still looking for their first victory.

The next matches in Seoul are on Saturday where USA takes on the Dominican Republic at 06:00 GMT (15:00 local time) followed by Japan's match against Korea at 09:00 GMT (18:00 local time).
