A first for beach duo Boermans/De Groot with a place in the final in Gstaad

Boermans and De Groot started poorly, but halfway through the first set they were able to put more and more pressure on Lijamin and Myskiv. Thanks to good defensive work by De Groot and hard hits to the net by Boermans, a deficit was turned into a large lead.

In the second set, the Dutch rumbled on and built up a large lead (7-3). The Russians came back to one point, but Boermans and De Groot got back up just in time and won that set as well.

The second seeded Qatari duo Cherif Younnousse and Ahmed Tijan await in the final. Boermans/De Groot are placed fifteenth.

Boermans and De Groot not going to Tokyo

Boermans and De Groot have not qualified for the Olympic Games in recent times. Three Dutch duos are active in Tokyo; Alexander Brouwer/Robert Meeuwsen, Raïsa Schoon/Katja Stam and Sanne Keizer/Madelein Meppelink.

In Gstaad, all Dutch couples – except for Boermans and De Groot – have been eliminated.
