Guimaraes: We are in good shape

Brazil Head Coach Jose Roberto Guimaraes:

"We are in good shape, but we did not expect to win over Russia and Serbia this way," said Guimaraes.

"We have improved our blocking, defense and serving since the World Grand Prix final round and I don't know what else we can improve on," he added. "I just hope that we can keep playing like this."

"There is a risk that the players would think it is easy (to win) , we must stop that from happening," he added. "We have to forget the victory and focus on our next match against Kazakhstan."

Brazil player Paula Pequeno:

"It's really a good sensation when you make a block. In this match I was able to do it a lot," said Pequeno.

Brazil player Walewska Oliveira:

"We still have a long way to go to get the gold but we also have many opportunities," said Walewska Oliveira, who contributed 11 points for Brazil. "We will reach the final, step by step."

Serbia Head Coach Zoran Terzic:

"Brazil played an extraordinary game. It is difficult to say how much the result is our fault and why Brazil was so good," said Terzic. "There are some things we didn't do as we planned. Others we did as best as we could, but Brazil know how to neutralize that."

"It's awful that we always start 0-2 against Brazil," Terzic added. "We played better in the third set, but that's not enough."
