Walsh-Jennings, Ross reach beach volleyball semifinals


USA's Kerri Walsh-Jennings and April Ross advanced to the Rio de Janeiro 2016 Olympic Games beach volleyball semifinals when they defeated Australia's Louise Bawden and Taliqua Clancy, 21-14, 21-16, at the Copacabana Beach Arena on Sunday.

They will now play Brazil's Agatha Bednarczuk and Barbara Seixas in Tuesday's semifinals.

“Two more matches to go, one at a time. Our eyes are clear. We won't be put off," Walsh-Jennings said. “We respect Agatha and Barbara so much, we always have and we're going to bring our A game and give it our best."

Ross and Walsh Jennings have won all five meetings with the Aussies in FIVB World Tour competition, though this was their first meeting since April, 2015.
