Russia A with Lev KATSMAN and Maksim GREBNEV clinched the title in the Cadet Boys’ Team event. In the final in straight matches they overcame Chinese Taipei B with LIN Yung-Chih and WANG Chien-Chih. They dominated the duel in which their adversary managed to win only one game - in doubles.
In penultimate stage Russia overcame top seeds Chinese Taipei ‘A’ with FENG Yi-Hsin and TAI Ming-Wei. Chinese TAipei B succeeded against Vincent PICARD and Antoine DOYEN of France.
In the final of the Junior Girls’ Team event Chinese Taipei plays against Japan-Taipei combination, whilst in Cadet Girls’ Team event there is no doubt Chinese Taipei will clinch the title. The question is will it be A or B team.
