In the very first game, Villarreal had a chance to make a statement as she addressed a relatively routine 10-Ball. She missed the 10-Ball and left Kim a bankshot. Kim missed the bankshot and then Villarreal missed a long bank on the 10-Ball. Kim made the easy leftovers and though nerves were showing the first game, Kim re-grouped and won 3 more straight for a 4-0 whitewash of the former USA #1.
“We are having daily team discussions and we can’t give away our secrets on the partners matches”, replied Kim in the aftermath TV interview.
Afterwards, Captain Kelly Fisher picked herself as the second singles match and she faced Siming Chen. In a lackluster match that was actually vastly important to put Team West within one match point to Asia and conceivably tie for the Day, Fisher was completely overwhelmed by Chen’s offense and defense. The 18 year old Chinese won a easy 4-0 and the momentum continued to build for Asia.
The final match of the day would be 3-on-3 in a crucial match for the West to close the deficit.
