Tokyo Olympics: Women’s Beach Volleyball Switzerland vs USA Live Stream: Preview and Prediction

The first semifinal of the women's beach volleyball at the Tokyo Olympics 2020 between Switzerland and USA will commence at 9:00 AM (JST).

Switzerland’s Joana Heidrich and Anouk Vergé-Dépré will lock horns with USA’s Alexandra “Alix” Klineman and April Elizabeth Ross in the first semifinal of the women’s beach volleyball at the Tokyo Olympics 2020. America’s Elizabeth Ross is already a two time Olympic medalist, but has never won a gold, which she would like to change this time around.

Switzerland vs USA Match Preview

Switzerland are entering into the semifinal after registering a thrilling victory over Brazil in the quarters. The Swiss women needed three sets to clinch the match 2-1 (21-19, 18-21, 15-12). In the process, they made it to their maiden Olympic semifinal, and now would like to assure themselves of at least a silver by earning the gold medal match berth.

On the other hand, USA got a tough fight from Germany, but they prevailed to outclass the Germans in straight sets 2-0 (21-19, 21-19). They are looking like the prime contenders to win the yellow metal, even more with Elizabeth Ross desperately looking to clinch the elusive gold after claiming the silver and the bronze with different partners in the 2012 and 2016 Olympics, respectively.
