Barbolini satisifed with victory

Italy's Nadia Centoni celebrates

Massimo BARBOLINI (ITA) - coach
On the match:
"I'm satisfied with the improvements to our service and our defence."
On Taismary AGUERO (ITA):
"She played a very good match today. This was the first time she played as both spiker and receiver."

Eleonora LO BIANCO (ITA)
On the match:
"We were glad to beat Serbia 3-0. We had some difficulties during the match but we were good at serving and our blocking was good enough to defend our opponents."

Zoran TERZIC (SRB) - coach
On the match:
"We have problems with some technical elements, especially counter-attack. The strengths in our previous matches have become problems that we need to solve."
On his players' performance:
"It's not possible to be pleased with any player after such a match. Each and every player and myself carry our responsibility, not only for the loss, but also for the way we played."

On the match:
"It's difficult to play against Italy. We often started (to fight back) after the second time-out but it was too late. We tried to chase but the result came out to be not good enough. Generally speaking we performed welll but we were not good at serving and receiving. At some moments we played well. We will concentrate on the games later on."
"We weren't able to figure out a way to receive their service. Our loss wasn't because we were afraid of Italy, we still got points in a row in this match. Their service was really good today so we lost the game."
