Walsh Jennings and her partner, April Ross, were relegated to the third-place game by Brazil's reigning world champions, who beat the Americans in straight sets on Tuesday night to advance to a gold-medal matchup with Germany.

Agatha and Barbara rode a boisterous crowd at the Copacabana venue to a 22-20, 21-18 victory, keeping alive the host nation's chances for a gold medal after its top-seeded team lost to Germany earlier in the day.
