The Swiss duo lost to favorites Kristin Noss and Taryn Kluth from the United States in three sets.
Tanya Huberle and Nina Brunner's journey to the World Cup in Tlaxcala, Mexico, ended in the quarterfinals. On Saturday night, the duo lost to Americans Kristin Noss and Taryn Kluth in times of 17:21, 21:19, 8:15.
From the start, the Swiss had to watch as the No. 2 seeded American team picked up a slew of points. Once the match started, the score was 1:4 from a Swiss point of view. Despite great efforts, Huberle/Brunner were unable to restore the tension to the opening movement.
Strong Swiss reaction
But the Swiss, number 7 in the tournament, did not let this setback bother him. On the contrary, they put their stamp on the match in the second round and were one point ahead with a score of 12:8.
We are very happy with the way we played this week.
Even when things got tough at the end of the set and Noss/Kloth moved within a point, the Swiss duo remained calm. They used the second set ball to make it 21:19.
Second best result for Huberli/Brunner
But in the decisive round, Nuss/Kloth managed to go one better, while the Swiss were no longer able to respond. However, Huberle/Brunner can be satisfied with the second-best World Cup result of their careers. In 2019 they reached fourth place in Hamburg.
The Swiss woman appeared coherent in the interview after exiting the quarter-finals. “We had some tough battles against this team,” Broner said. In the end, the Americans deserved to win. “We are very happy with the way we played this week,” Huberly summed up. In the end, there wasn't enough energy – not least because of the flu that had previously infected the body. Huberly says that although they are disappointed, they can't blame themselves for anything right now.
Therefore, the final days of the world title fights will be held in Mexico without Swiss representation: Esme Bubner and Zoe Vergé-Debré were forced to surrender in the round of 16, while Anouk Vergé-Debré and Joanna Mader were eliminated in the round of 16. .
