FIVB Women's World Cup 2007
 
Press Conference
 
High motivation was the key for Serbia
 

 Nagoya, Japan, November 14, 2007: Comments from the official FIVB press conference after the USA-Serbia match on Wednesday.

 

Serbia

 

Head Coach Zoran Terzic: We knew before the game it would be very difficult and very tough, and we must play especially in defence the same as the American team if we wanted to win tonight. The most important reason we won was our motivation was at a high, high level tonight.

 

Captain Vesna Citakovic: It was a very big game for us and both teams were fighting until the end. I think the supporters enjoyed this volleyball and today we played a little bit better than the America team. We tried to play aggressively in serve, block and defence, and I think we deserved this victory.

 

USA

 

Head Coach Lang Ping: Serbia played a very tough match. I think we had a little bit of a problem with our side attacks against the blocking. The players worked very hard and we will concentrate for the next game. I think the last three matches are all very tough, so we have to concentrate on our side of the job, play better and in the difficult moments play very calm and control the tempo. The game can go either way because they are all good teams.

 

Captain Robyn Ah Mow-Santos: Serbia played a very good match, but for us we were not focused. Our passing was a little off. We will take whatever we can and move on for the next game.
