Italy captain Eleonora Lo Bianco:
Congratulations to the USA team. They played a good game and we didn't play very well. We didn't play our normal game. We made a lot of mistakes, so it's impossible to win.
Italy coach Massimo Barbolini:
They dominated all the match. USA has been always the top of the match. Today we learned another lesson. It's difficlt to win, if you don't play as a team. We will think about what can do next against Japan. I hope we will improve as the tournament goes on and I am sure we can do it.
USA captain Jennifer Tamas:
We played a much better game today than yesterday. Our serving and blocking are better. I hope we will be a beteer team against Brazil tomorrow. We are very happy with our improvement today.
USA coach Hugh McCutcheon:
Like I said yesterday, that's our goal to improve. Yesterday we were fortunate to win. Today we came out and controled the match from the beginning. We are very happy to win. We will look forward to playing Brazil tomorrow.
