Brazil's fifth-ranked tandem of Talita Rocha and Maria Antonelli take on seventh ranked Netherlandians Madelein Meppelink and Sophie van Gestel in this preliminary match. Rocha and Antonelli are looking to continue their winning ways after winning bronze in the 2009 World Championships, and gold in the 2009 Swatch FIVB World Tour. These Brazilian bombshells are a feisty duo who play the net well and defend even better. They'll be a tough team to beat for Meppelink and Van Gestel.
