That was just way too easy for Emmanuel and Casin. They came out with aggression, took the Indians by surprise and equalised the match quite easily.
Can Sathiyan and Harmeet bounce back in the third game? Or will the French pair once again dominate?

The French pair has absolutely dominated the second game. They lead 9-3. Should be easy, closing this off.

Both Sathiyan-Harmeet and Emmanuel-Cassin are highly inexperienced as a pair. The Indians had won only one match together before their dream run here in Tunis, while the French had played just 4 matches together before this WTT Contender.
This is going to be an exciting clash!

Sathiyan-Harmeet are here!
Both the pairs have arrived on table number 1. I can spot Sathiyan gulping down some water on the sidelines before he enters. The match will start in a few minutes.
