Chinese Taipei, the no.5 seeds, represented by Tsai Yun-En, Tsai Pei-Rung and Huang Yu-Jie, accounted for Hong Kong’s Ng Wing Lam, Phoebe Hui Wai and Yenn Ho Ching by three matches to one, before Indonesia, the no.12 seeds, the lowest listed in the competition, followed suit.

In a full distance five match contest, Siti Aminah, Dwi Oktaviani Sugiarto and Anna Wahyuni Doonggio rose to the occasion. The win secured second place and the end of the road for Hong Kong; teams finishing in the top two places in each of the four groups advanced to the quarter-finals.

Defeat for one leading team; in the remaining groups there were no such problems, the highest rated outfits prevailed. China, the top seeds, selecting from Chen Yi, Kuai Man and Li Yuqi topped their group without surrendering a single individual match, as did the second seeded Korea Republic team comprising Kim Jimin, Byun Seoyoung and Kim Seongjin.

Likewise, maintaining a perfect record, it was top spot for the no.4 seeds, the Japanese selection of Haruna Ojio, Hikari Okubo and Kaho Akae.

Meanwhile, in the initial stage of the Cadet Boys’ Team, similarly four groups in the initial phase; it was top spot for the leading outfits.

Selecting from Kuang Li, Zeng Beixun and Xiong Mengyang, China, the top seeds reserved first place without an individual match being surrendered.

However, runners up spot was somewhat of a surprise; the Iranian outfit formed by Seyed Mohammad Musavitaher, Radin Khayyam and Seyed Mohammadamin upset the order of merit. The no.9 seeds, they recorded a narrow three matches to two win against the team listed one place higher, Thailand’s Chettanabodi Chanpen, Puripong Saelee and Anuwat Sangduang.

Thus for the Thai trio it was the end of the road.

First place for China, in the remaining groups it was also first places for the highest rated outfits.
