Kerri Walsh Jennings and Misty May-Treanor have not lost a set in Olympic play…until tonight.
Kerri and Misty were undefeated in Athens and remained unbeaten in Beijing but tonight, lost their first set to Australia, suffering a 21-17 loss in the first set. “I was furious,” Walsh Jennings said afterward. “It’s still with me. I want to go to the practice court and fix it.”
Misty and Kerri rebounded and won the match and will now wait and see who they will play next. Pool play has now ended and now the 2-time defending Gold medalists will play the “knock-out” round. “Now it’s a whole new tournament,” May-Treanor said following the match on Wednesday.
