In the second set the Dutch seemed to take the match to a tiebreak, leading 17-13, but the Mexicans took over and levelled at 18-18. Van Dorsten and Van de Velde saved two Mexican match points, but failed to claim the set point they created. In the end Virgen finished the match at the third Mexican match point.
