Classy Serbs make short work of Egypt

Serbia's Ivan Miljkovic attacks
Beijing, China, August 18, 2008 - Serbia took just 62 minutes to see off Egypt in straight sets (25-16, 25-13, 25-17) in their Pool B match at Capital Gymnasium on Monday.
Ivan MILJKOVIC was the key man in attack as the Serbs outclassed their opponents from the start. They scored five points from blocks in a first set sealed by a Mahmoud ABD EL KADER (EGY) service error.
MILJKOVIC continued to find holes in the Egyptian defence, ably supported by Dejan BOJOVIC and Milos NIKIC (SRB). The Balkan side established a two-set lead after BOJOVIC blocked Mohamed GABAL (EGY).
GABAL led the way as Egypt rallied to make a contest of the third set, but with 13-point BOJOVIC in sparkling form the Serbs were not to be denied and a service error from GABAL at match point brought the end for the north Africans.
