USA and Japan on song

Seoul, Korea, July 2, 2005 - USA collected their second victory of the 2005 World Grand Prix after producing a stunning comeback to beat the Dominican Republic 3-2 (23-25, 23-25, 25-14, 25-16, 15-6) in just short of two hours in the opening match on day two in Seoul.

After a slow start, the world number three Americans eventually got into gear to keep the Dominican Republic winless. The second match of the day saw Japan complete an outstanding 3-0 (25-22, 25-18, 25-13) win over Korea for their fourth win in five matches.
