Eight teams from seven countries fill field for women's main draw at Brasília Open
</td>



Brasília, Brazil, April
16, 2012—Following three rounds of qualification tournament matches,
women’s teams from Brazil, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, Japan, Mexico
and Netherlands advanced the final eight teams to Tuesday’s start of the
main draw tournament at the US$380,000 Brasília Open, the
season-opening event of the 2012 FIVB Beach Volleyball SWATCH World Tour
which is being held in the capital city of Brazil.


The Netherlands advanced two
teams to complete the 32-team field in the women’s main draw tournament
while the other countries each have one more team in the main draw.
Moving forward from the Netherlands are Madelein Meppelink/Sophie van
Gestel (13th-seeded qualification team) and Merel Mooren/Jantine van der
Vlist (Q10). The additional six teams advancing are Brazil’s Raquel
Pelluci/Maria Clara Salgado (Q1), Germany’s Karla Borger/Britta Buthe
(Q6), Great Britain’s Lucy Boulton/Denise Johns (Q1 8, Italy’s Daniela
Gioria/Giulia Momoli (Q3), Japan’s Takemi Nishibori/Satoko Urata (Q12),
Mexico’s Bibiana Candelas/Mayra Garcia (Q1 2).


With the season-opening event on
the 2012 FIVB Beach Volleyball SWATCH World Tour calendar in Brazil, The
road to the 2012 London Olympic Games has resumed as 16 of the 24 teams
in each gender will be determined through year-long Olympic rankings
through the FIVB SWATCH World Tour. This will be the first of nine
double-gender events on the 2012 world tour schedule. Beach Volleyball
at the London Olympic Games will run from July 28 to August 9.


Celebrating the 25th anniversary
of the first FIVB-sanctioned event (Rio de Janeiro in 1987), the
international beach volleyball circuit begins for the fourth consecutive
season with the US$380,000 Brasília Open will be held through Sunday
on The Esplanada dos Ministérios in Quadrante 1 as the Brazilian capital
is celebrating its 52nd anniversary on Saturday. The tournament is the
first of nine double-gender events on the 2012 schedule.


Netherland’s two advancing teams
both looked strong in Monday’s qualifier. Meppelink/van Gestel With both
teams receiving first-round byes they both won their second and third
round matches in two sets. Meppelink/van Gestel defeated teams from
Russia and Georgia while .Mooren/van der Vlist dispatched teams from
Norway and China.


“It's always good move forward to
the main drawn of the tournament and face great teams,” said
Netherlands’ van Gestel, who is transitioning into the pro ranks after
earning three youth and junior world championship medals in the past
several years. “Our team is new. We formed last July and played only
four rounds of the FIVB SWATCH Beach Volleyball World Tour. We are
developing our game, increasing the connection and our communication in
the court. This was the main difficulty for us in the beginning. Now we
are starting to feel more comfortable as a team. We understand each
other and use our strong attack which is our best weapon.”


With four teams already
pre-seeded into the main draw, Brazil’s Pelluci/Salgado give the host
country five teams following their qualifying wins over teams from
Columbia and Poland. Brazil’s three other teams in the qualification
tournament were all eliminated.


“It is my first time to make a
FIVB SWATCH World Tour main draw so I am very happy with this day,” said
Brazil’s Pelluci following her team’s final match Monday: “We got two
victories and a lot of hope to go forward. The atmosphere and the
opponents are new for me. I am very fortunate and it is a fantastic
opportunity to have a partner like Maria Clara. Despite being younger
than me she is very experienced and gives me a lot of confidence in my
bad moments. In the first match I was very reckless but then in the
second one I blocked better to help the team.”


Monday’s very busy women’s
qualification tournament ended with a single center court match that saw
Great Britain’s 18th-seeded Lucy Boulton/Denise Johns come from behind
to stun USA’s second-seeded Angie Akers/Brittany Hochevar in three sets,
in the largest seed break-through of the day. Boulton/Johns lost the
first set 13-21, won the second 21-14. In the deciding third set, they
jumped out to leads of 11-6 and 14-9 before ending their victory at
15-11 in 43 minutes..


Brazil has staged a FIVB SWATCH
World Tour event every year since the start of the international series
for men in 1989 and women in 1992. This will be the 34th men’s event and
29th women’s tournament on the FIVB SWATCH World Tour held in Brazil.
It is the 14th time that the FIVB SWATCH World Tour will have its
season-opening event in Brazil.


The capital city of the South
American country has welcomed 135 men and women’s teams from 35
countries. This event is the 272nd men’s and 233rd women’s competition
in the history of the FIVB SWATCH World Tour. Two-time returning
defending men’s champions in Brazil are Phil Dalhausser/Todd Rogers of
the United States and the three-time defending women’s champions here
are Juliana Felisberta Silva/Larissa Franca of Brazil. All six
medal-winning teams from 2011 have returned to Brazil this year.


The men’s Country Quota playoffs
and qualification tournament will be played Tuesday and Wednesday,
respectively. The men’s main draw rounds start Thursday for men. The
gold medal teams in each gender in the Brasília Open will each split
$30,000, the silver $21,000, the bronze $15,000 and fourth place
$11,200. The women’s medal matches will be held Friday and the men’s
medal matches will be played next Sunday.

What a day for Dutch beachvolleyball !!!
Keizer - Van Iersel won their 3 games and still are alive.
And Meppelink - van Gestel, who defeated 3 American (2 South 1 North) teams, too !
....
NB : Larissa - Juliana losed in 2 sets against the European champions.

Well ... what's up after the qualifications and the first day of the main draw ?
...
Difficult start for the Czech pair Kolocova-Slukova, beaten (19/21 at tie break ) by Monti-Hansel.
Other favourites passed through the 3rd round.
As several big teams are not in Sanya there are good places to take for usual outsiders : Gioria-Momoli, Schwaiger sisters (it's their come back at Sanya) or Kuhn-Zumkher, ...

The finalists of Brasilia, Xue/ Zhang Xi and Talita/Maria Elisa remain the last unbeaten teams at Sanya :win:
I don't know if there are videos of today games somewhere.
But if you could watch the 24th point (set 1) of Monti/Babsi vs Xue/ Zhang Xi
and the 31th (set 2) of Talita/Maria Elisa vs Larissa/Julia ...
you would become a beach volley fan
