2. Amanda/Frida 1-1 3-3 21-21
3. Emma/Alexzandra 0-2 2-4 21-22

All three matches went to the deciding match tiebreak....

F/A vs A/E: 5-7, 6-4, [10-5]
F/A vs C/D: 6-3, 3-6, [4-10]
A/E vs C/D: 6-3, 4-6, [6-10]

Before the last match the situation was that if A/E won in straight sets they would win the round-robin/group. Or if it went to a match tiebreaker they would win if they had a positive game ratio (which they had) *and* won the tieabreaker. They got to 6-6 in the tiebreaker. And lost, and thus finished last. Drat!

Ah well... It was a good warm-up for Emma for her bigger tournament that starts on Monday (she also lost her singles match).

Btw, since it's my birthday today let's celebrate with some free beer for all!

Bartender, please send a glass of Stoli Hot to Peter.
