The first team came out victorious. Five more matches were played on the women’s side, while the men’s competition came back on court in the evening with Round 2. The majority of the matches ended in three sets, extending the action until 23:30. Despite the cold weather, the local fans continued to watch the fierce competition between battling teams.
