Brazil’s women might not have clinched gold but hey, we’re sure they’ll take the other two medals!

Of course there was disappointment but Agatha/Barbara were still smiling with their silver medals after their defeat to the golden girls from Germany Laura Ludwig and Kira Walkenhorst.

“We’re pleased with how we’ve come through some difficult matches this week,” said Barbara.

“Laura and Kira deserve this gold medal,” added Barbara. “We wanted gold but they were better than us.”

On the other side of the podium they were joined by their countrywomen Larissa/Talita who breezed to bronze and third place with a straight sets win over April Ross and Kerri Ann Jennings in just 33 minutes.

So no gold for Brazil today…but there’s always tomorrow….
