The fourth meeting of the Netherlands and Estonia this summer, this is bound to be a tight and crucial affair. Meeting three times already in the European Golden League, the team in Orange currently lead the way with two wins, including the straight sets victory that brought the Bronze medal from this year’s Finals in Tallinn. The Netherlands want a win to secure 2nd place in the pool, while Estonia is in do-or-die mode as they have not won a match yet.
