The 22nd ranked pair came from a set down to beat the 11th seeds from Italy 19-21 21-14 15-10, before losing their second match in straight sets against the sixth seeds from Brazil.

The Melanesians are in top form, having matched their best ever finish on the World Tour, after finishing in a tie for fifth at last week's Long Beach Grand Slam in California.
