Ivanov seems to have some problems with Marc's deceptive shots.

Well played, Marc! It's 1 all now.

Strong display from Sozonov and Sorokina in XD. Falling behind in 2nd set, but remained their calm composure to once again find their winning formula. Picked up a string of 9 points in a row to retain their lead and carry Russia to victory in this important 1st rubber. This victory meant that Ivanov could strategically tank his match against Zwiebler to save his powers for his MD later. As Schenk probably will win her WS, that MD is a must-win for Russia who will then set up their formidable doubles pairing of Sorokina-Vislova to win the tie!!

As the Dutch pair and coach commented on yesterday, Sorokina is really dominating in the first three shots at the moment ...

My tactic for the Russian team would have looked like this:
- forget about winning MS
- keep the doubles players as fresh as possible

Well done, team Germany. Very good effort! Expect Michels, she played very bad for this level... So nervous, poor Fuchs xDD
Very strong performance by JSch/IK! No chance for the Russians, maybe to much pressure playing on homesoil...
Hopefully Germany can at least challange Denmark tomorrow. WS and MS have very good chances. Maybe a third point from MD, WD and MX will go to Denmark I believe.

I guess they did sort of have to yeah, thinking about it some more but Sozonov looked the more tired of the two I think Of course if he was spared and Ivanov exempt of MS duty then I see where you are going with this .
It would be a little easier if Nikolaenko was still around and even then beforehand you could not say it is a sure point. Maybe they could have also played Durkin/Sorokina ...
But who knows what was Michels injury this week anyway, must not be that bad if she is scheduled for WD as well?
And apparently Prokopenko has retired from badminton as well.

I hope for a 2-0 lead, so that the Danes have to keep their nerves calm to win

Yes a 2-0 start would be the best for us loyal viewers ...

I don't mean to sound negative but how come the Europe confederation stream is so bad? Terrible framerate, bad colors, shrieking audio, wrong aspect ratio (really?) and low resolution. Its like it was recorded 1970. I know it's better than nothing, but I just had to rant...
PS zwiebler will destroy vittinghus
