With the Individual Champions crowned, it was on to the Women’s Team event, and today was the first of two days of Pool matches which would determine the quarter-finalists, both days featuring three sessions of three matches, one at QEYS and two at Devoy Squash.
Egypt clinch Pool A,
England in charge in Pool C
Top seeds and defending champions Egypt wrapped up three-team Pool A with 3-0 wins over first Australia and then hosts New Zealand, leaving the antipodean rivals to battle it out tomorrow for a quarter-final place.
Second seeds Malaysia beat Germany 3-0, and a win against Canada tomorrow would clinch top spot in Pool B, which also contains just three teams.
In Pool C favourites Egypt and India opened up with 3-0 wins over France and South Africa, and met in the evening to settle the finishing order with England emerging 3-0 winners to all but secure a favourable quarter-final draw. South Africa, seeded 13, produced the only seeding upset of the day as they beat 11th seeds France 2-1.
