On the women’s side, April Ross and Alix Klineman and Kelly Claes and Sarah Sponcil play in Saturday’s third round of playoffs.

Casey Patterson and Chase Budinger and Bill Kolinske and Miles Evans represent the USA in the Saturday’s first round of elimination playoffs.

Kelly Reeves and Brittany Howard were eliminated in the first round of playoffs, while Theo Brunner and Reid Priddy did not advance from pool play.

Ross-Klineman defeated Katharina Schutzenhofer and Lena Plesiutschnig of Austria (21-14, 21-15) Friday to reach the third round.

Kerri Walsh Jennings and Brooke Sweat were eliminated in ninth place after a second-round loss to Andrea Strbova and Natalia Dubovcova of Slovakia (21-12, 16-21, 13-15).

Reeves and Howard finished 17th after a loss to Japan’s Megumi Murakami and Miki Ishii (21-18, 21-14).

In the men’s draw, no American teams were able to win both pool matches and earn the accompanying bye. Casey Patterson and Chase Budinger defeated Miles Evans and Bill Kolinske in a tightly contested match (32-20, 23-25, 17-15), but were edged by Alexander Brouwer and Robert Meeuwsen of the Netherlands (20-22, 26-28).

Kolinske and Evans bounced back to defeat Robert Juchnevic and Artur Vasiliev of Lithuania (27-25, 18-21, 17-15), after overcoming a third-set 13-14 deficit.

Theo Brunner and Reid Priddy were unable to advance to elimination play with pool play losses to Alex Walkenhorst and Sven Winter of Germany (19-21, 9-21) and Mees Blom and Yorick De Groot of the Netherlands (16-21, 21-18, 16-18).
