Mojica Vilmarie, Puerto Rico captain - "It was a an excellent match because China is a great team. They played really fast so we tried hard to do the same. Eventually they won. I think now we must concentrate on tomorrow’s game."
Wei Qiuyue, China captain -"This is the first time we play against Puerto Rico, who we know little about. Actually their speed and power threatened our defense much indeed. We made progress, and the result is anticipated."
Ms. Yarelis Rodrigue, Puerto Rico coach - "China is a great team to compete with and we tried our best. The result is a bit disappointing."
Wang Baoquan, China coach - "We took much training before meeting Puerto Rice the first time. We could have done better, the girls made a lot of mistakes. But I am satisfied with their first performance. It is not sure whether Zhang Lei can attend the match tomorrow. About Wang Yimei, she was not that outstanding at the beginning of the game so I changed the player because the first show is significant to the girls’ spirit and confidence. I will give her more chances next time."
