Italy win to sit on verge of Final Round place

Hong Kong, China, July 9, 2005 - Italy beat the Dominican Republic 3-0 (25-21, 25-10, 25-18) on Saturday to record their fifth win of the World Grand Prix on the second day's action in Hong Kong.

With one more game to play on Sunday - against undefeated China - Italy are in a strong position to claim one of the five Final Round berths alongside hosts Japan.

Meanwhile in the second match of the day, Olympic champions China were again in awesome form, defeating Germany 3-0 (25-23, 25-15, 25-23), extinguishing any hope the Europeans had of reaching the Final Round.
