Looks like they were totally outplayed in both tie-breaks losing them very meekly. In contrast, they won 4 out of last week's 5 matches in MTBs. Except for the one against the #1 pair (where they were stretched to a 13-11 win), they dominated the other 3 MTBs by winning them easily at 2, 6, and 4. Not being seeded makes them vulnerable in these earlier rounds. Better luck next time!
