Brazil’s newly-paired duo Ana Paula Connelly/Larissa Franca claimed a breath-taking victory over Russian rivals Monday following their first win in the preliminaries.
Ana/Larissa beat Russian Alexandra Shiryaeva/Natalya Uryadova 19-21, 21-12, 15-13 in a nail-biting three-set match.
“We change our serves, from jump serves to float serves and boost our offence, which works,” Ana said after the match. Source
