America's Cup Live Streaming - The 34th edition of sailing's greatest racing event continues to give fans thrills heading into the 13th day with Oracle Team USA attempting to pull off the biggest comeback in history while Emirates Team New Zealand setting their sight at Auld Mug after blowing an 8-1 lead.
Emirates Team New Zealand vs. Oracle Team USA - America's Cup Live Streaming
Sunday's back-to-back victories by Oracle Team USA were simply huge as the Americans finally showed their dominance in both downwind and upwind legs. The tandem of tactician Ben Ainslie and Aussie Tom Slingsby has been a big factor for Oracle, who sailed beautifully at the final turn of both race no.14 and no.15.
Meanwhile, Emirates Team New Zealand skipper Dean Barker has suddenly found his team getting overwhelmed by Oracle's speed. However, Monday's battle is expected to be fiercer than before after the Kiwis made noticeable adjustments on their AC72 boats.
"It was always going to be a battle. We knew that," Barker told America's Cup. "Without question they've improved since the first week. We feel like we've improved also, but the game was very, very close and it was always going to be a battle for every point."
Oracle Team USA certainly has the momentum going into Monday's race, but keep in mind that Emirates team New Zealand can close it out with a victory in either race no.16 or no. 17.
