Another successful day in Cologne for the US Team.

Youngsters Maria Elena Ubina and Katie Tutrone fell short in the plate but, again, gained invaluable experience at the international level. Haley Mendez continued her successful run in search of 17th place defeating the #1 Dutch player Tessa ter Sluis. Olivia Blatchford, gunning for 5th place, fell short in a tight 4 game match versus Kanzy Emad El-Defrawy (EGY). She will play for 7th place tomorrow.

In the main draw semi finals Amanda Sobhy booked a place in the final with an EXTREMELY tight 3 game victory over world junior champion Nour El Sherbini 12-10, 14-12, and 11-9. It was a match that had the spectators (and coaches) mesmerized. Amanda will play Nour El Tayeb for the championship tomorrow at 8pm Cologne time.
