London 2012: Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh Results, Highlights and More

Blake Dorfman@blakedorfmanFeatured ColumnistJuly 28, 2012

Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh began their quest for a three-peat with a 21-18, 21-19 win against No. 22 Natalie Cook and Tamsin Henchley of Australia. The 37-year-old Cook was the player of the match, digging tons of balls and making some clutch plays.

It was the Americans, however, who were the most clutch. They broke away from late ties in both sets, which is a very encouraging sign as far as their focus. They looked good (in more ways than one).

If you missed it, Americans Jake Gibb and Sean Rosenthal won their first match in 34 minutes. Someone should give them one of those buttons from Staples.
