Penninga and Bouter cruise to Vaduz men’s semifinals
“It was not an easy game because in every game you have to perform well first,” they said. “We did that very well today but we also reacted well when they took turns in serving against us. First we had to find the rhythm.”
The Dutchmen will face the Russian team next in the semifinals, as Daniil Kuvichka and Anton Kislytsyn won easier than expected in their quarterfinal encounter against third-seeded Mariusz Prudel/Mikolaj Miszczuk of Poland 2-0 (21-16, 21-11). The Poles had a string of mistakes and their block-defence system was not on point against their rivals that day.

Austria’s Moritz Fabian Kindl and Mathias Seiser and the Netherlands’ Tom van Steenis/Sven Vismans delivered a well-balanced and high-standing quarterfinal. They thrilled the audience with long rallies, with great attacks and blocks, including fast defensive actions. Austria kept the better end for them in a super three-set match (19-21, 23-21, 15-11).
Their compatriots Florian Ertl/Johannes Kratz, who played their way into the main draw after qualifying earlier this week, continue to ride the wave of success and entered the final four convincingly with a 2-0 (26-24, 21-15) win against the Russians Andrey Bolgov/Vladislav Ermilov.
