Korea and Japan Dead Locked at 2nd Annual Brunswick Korea vs. Japan Challenge The first day of the Second Annual Brunswick Korea Versus Japan tournament began with two-on-two men¬ís doubles and featured Korea’s number-two-ranked player Woong Dae Kim and Charlie Williams against Japan’s number-one-ranked player Hiroshi Takenaka and number-two player Go Takami. Japan could do no wrong, while Kim made a critical error on a scratch shot and Japan cruised to a quick 3-0 victory. Next Korea’s Captain Shin Young Park and Yun Mi Lim took on Japan’s Shuji Nagata and their star player Miyuki Sakai in her television debut. Sakai seemed a little shaky for her first TV appearance when she missed an easy 8 ball to put Japan up 2-0. This gave the Koreans the chance to come back with 3 in a row to win the match 3-1 and tie the score at one match apiece for Korea and Japan. Next was the four-on-four scotch doubles match, where Team Korea seemed to play in perfect unison with Williams coming with a huge 3 ball combo to start the run-out and later a long table-length draw shot to put Korea in the lead 2 matches to 1.
