Morning Roundup – top four through to quarters:
No upsets as the eight higher seeded teams all won their matches 3-0. Top seeds Egypt, Malaysia, Hong Kong and England kept their winning records intact to guarantee they will be in the quarter-finals.
Switzerland also booked their quarter-final place – they’ll face Egypt tomorrow to determine the Pool A top positions.
In Pool B Canada took their first win, but will most likely need to beat Malaysia tomorrow to make the last eight with Australia taking on Japan.
USA notched up a second win and will look for one more tonight to set up a Pool D decider against England, while in Pool C India made it two from two and will aim for a third win tonight to set up a pool C decider against Hong Kong.
