Chen Wan Ting, Chinese Taipei Captain: "Their serves were too strong for us today. They served long and short and we never could manage it properly. Our reception was not good either."
Sarah Petrausch, Germany Captain: "Very happy to start with a win. First games are sometimes very difficult but we served well and then managed to win when Chinese Taipei changed their game’s tempo."
Norima Sakakuchi, Chinese Taipei Head Coach: "The German team is very tall and their spikers did their work over our blockers. It was very difficult for us."
Han Abbing, Germany Head Coach: "Very happy to test our young players. First matches always bring some tensions. They had good concentration, maybe got too focused for moments instead of relaxing and enjoying. When Taipei was defending it was very hard for us, but our serves and first tempo attacks were good today."
