Dutch duo Katja Wouters/Julia Wouters climb to FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour Langkawi Open semifinals with an undefeated record since the qualification round
The Russians, Australians and the Czechs seemed to have taken advantage of skipping the Round of 12, as they posted straight-set wins against their respective quarterfinal rivals at Pantai Cenang on Saturday.
Dabizha/Mastikova overpowered Japan’s Reika Murakami/Chiyo Suzuki 2-0 (21-18, 21-15), while Bell/Ngauamo outclassed Indonesia’s Dhita Juliana/Putu Utami 2-0 (21-16, 21-15).
Stam/Wouters are on an upward trend and are undefeated so far since the qualification round. The Dutch duo outshined their European neighbours Leonie Klinke/Lisa Sophie Kotzan of Germany 2-0 (22-20, 21-16).
