Netherlands at the final 6
The Netherlands of Angiolino Frigoni gains the final round of the World Grand Prix at the extreme end. The Germany of the Korean Lee practically let the Dutch team win the match; the German team, actually, while it was in advantage, probably didn't believe in its players. That's the mistake that the German players made during the tie-break,(especially when they got 9 points while Netherlands got 5),that they never managed to control. Instead, they accomplices were also some distractions of Germany in defence and a sure blur of its attackers, to Visser and her mates it wasn't hard to enter the final round which was really compromised.
