World Teams: Ukraine Loses First to Netherlands, Keeps Slim Lead

Starting with two losses, the Netherlands recovered and even joined the group of favorites on Monday at the World Team Championship in Kemer, Antalya, Ukraine with a 2.5-1.5 win over tournament leader Ukraine. Beating Anton Korobov, it was former top 10 player Loek van Wely who was the match winner for the Dutch. Russia must be grateful as they saw the gap with Ukraine decrease to one match point.
