Press Conference at Osaka Municipal Central Gym
Osaka, Japan, October 30, 2010 - 2010 FIVB Women's World Championship Press Conference Russia v Turkey:
Russia coach Vladimir Kuzyutkin: I am very happy with the result today. I was worried about Turkey's big victory last night (over China). We were able to stop their momentum and that was important.
Russia captain Maria Borodakova: We made some mistakes in the first set but we recovered.
Turkey coach Mehmet Bedestenlioglu: Our team woke up in the middle of the first set. We made five critical mistakes in the second set and could not recover from them.
Turkey player Neslihan Darnel: We didn't use our tactics well today. It's a long tournament and we have many games. I don't think fatigue was a factor (after the big win last night). We just lost our concentration. I'm used to the pressure of big events. It's not a big deal for me.
