Italy captain Eleonora Lo Bianco - "Congratulations to the USA. They played very well. Their blocking and defence are excellent. We played badly on services. I think we have many things to improve on for our next matches."
Italy coach Massimo Barbolini - "It's a good match. I totally agreed with what my captain had said. The USA excelled on blocking and defence. We tried to play well little by little. I think we have to play with more rhythms. However, this is the very first match against strong teams in the second week. I admit that I'm worrying about our chance to make top six for the Finals in Ningbo, China. We have to win the remaining two matches."
USA captain Jennifer Tamas -"It's a tough match and we have to play hard against them. We did a good job in defence and blocking."
USA coach Hugh McCutcheon - "I'm happy to win the match. We could congtrol the game. Logan Tom is very helpful for the win. I wish our team could make it to the Final six teams. Now, we have to focus on the next match against hosts Thailand."
