Canada and Korea both won their Tuesday evening round-robin games and remain the only undefeated women's teams after five round-robin sessions.

In Tuesday evening's play, Canada beat Hungary by 9-3 in just seven ends but Korea and Switzerland battled it out all the way to ten ends before the Koreans emerged victorious at 5-2.

The United States are chasing these two undefeated teams and, after an 8-4 win over Scotland, remain in third place overall, with just one loss so far.

Behind them, five teams are on two wins, including Sweden, who recorded two wins on Tuesday, the second being by 10-4 over Turkey in the evening session, and Russia, who, with a new line-up, beat Japan by 7-3.

The other teams now on two wins are Hungary, Switzerland and Turkey. The defeat at the hands of the USA means that Scotland remain on just one win, while Japan remain win-less at the bottom of the table.

They Said It:

Mary Fay (skip, Canada) after 9-3 win over Hungary: "I think that was a good game, we made some really good shots but they made some nice shots too. But I think we were on the right side of the inch there. We're glad to have made it this far, but we just want to keep going now."

Maria Baksheeva (third, Russia) after 7-3 win over Japan: "That was a very important win - it's only the second win for us so it was like our last chance now. I think we will now keep the same players in the same positions and try to do the same again in the next game."
