Russia was also severely tested. Lisa LUNG was once again at the top of the game by beating Maria TAYLAKOVA and Anastasia KOLISH, but the rest of the team could not follow. Russia will play against France. French cadets beat Norway.

Ukraine beat Sweden and they will meet Romania tomorrow, whilst Belarus will play against Germany. Jennie WOLF and  Luisa SAGER overcame Czech Republic in straight matches.
