Brno, Czech Republic, June 26, 2013 - Russia beat Egypt 3-0 in the round of 16

Russia coach Svetlana Safronova: The result is comfortable for us. It was not a difficult match and we relaxed too much during the game. Maybe this is also the reason of our failure in the second set.

Russia captain Elena Novik: We’re looking forward to the quarterfinal. We are awaiting a very serious match.

Egypt coach Hesham Badrawy: We played a very good game in the second set and we could win it. By winning this set we could play well the other sets. Our experience is unfortunately not considerable. We lost the second set and this was probably the reason why we didn’t play with the same quality the last part of the match.

Egypt captain Farida El Askalany: I know that in the first and third set we could have play better. In the second set we led till 24-24 and we could win this. However, Russian girls have more experience than us. They definitely played more matches, so they are able to win a set even if the opponent is clearly leading.
