Beach volleyball live streaming continues on Sunday with the final of the FIVB SWATCH World Tour women’s Sanya Open in China.
Defending Sanya Open champions and current world champions Juliana Felisberta Silva and Larissa Franca and third seeds Maria Antonelli and Talita Da Rocha Antunes both came through their semi-finals on Saturday to set up an all-Brazilian final.
Following an upset 2-0 defeat to Antonelli and Talita in the fourth round of the winner’s bracket on Friday, the second seeded Larissa and Juliana recovered to claim a 21-13 21-15 victory over Australians Becchara Palmer and Louise Bawden to book a place in the semi-finals.
They then defeated top seeds and home favourites Xue Chen and Zhang Xi 21-17 and 21-16 to reach the final.
Antonelli and Talita had no real problems in recording their fifth straight win in Sanya 21-14 21-17 over Austrian 20th seeds Sara Montagnolli and Barbara Hansel.
Having secured their fifth top four finish together, Montagnolli and Hansel will vie for the bronze medal against Xue and Chang.
