In the other games of the European elite, the French, Dutch and English women did not lose even a set, playing with lower-ranked opponents; Welsh also quickly recovered from the defeat and won against Team Germany 3: 0.
Among the men playing in Division 1, the French went easily through both of their matches.
Team England first defeated Wales (4-0) without a loss of the set, and then unexpectedly had a fierce duel with the Czech Republic. Although the English managed to win 4-0, two matches consisting of five sets: Declan James versus Jakub Solnicky and James Willstrop versus Daniel Mekbib, could be considered as a surprise. An even more equal match was the one between the Germans and the Welshmen, in which the first ones won 3:1.
The Poles in Division 2 did not manage to record any victory, nor with the Dutch (although Maximilian Wielgus, as the only one Pole won one set, against Marc Ter Sluis), or with Hungary. This means that Team Poland will come out of the group in the last place and will fight for the 9th place only.
Polish Women National Team did a lot better. Although ladies lost a game against seeded with number 1 in Division 2 – Team Spain (0:3), in their next game they defeated (also higher-ranked) Austria 3:0! .
