Press conference with Erika Araki and Masayoshi Manabe (Japan), and Baoquan Wang and Qiuyue Wei from China

Ningbo, China, August 26, 2010 - World Grand Prix Final Round: China v Japan press conference.

captain Wei Qiuyue:
I am very happy about winning the match. No doubt, every match at the GP finals is very tough. So I hope we could take the GP finals as a good opportunity to improve.


China coach Wang Baoquan: We kept cool throughout the match, that's the key to today's victory. Technically, we played fast in attacking. Middle blocker Xue Ming played her best game. Despite her injury, Wang Yimei showed consistent form. She played very well.

captain Araki Erika:
In the first set, we didn't play well, especially in blocking. I hope we could improve in tomorrow's match.


Japan coach Masayoshi Manabe: We didn't play well. China are a strong team. They are superior to us in both height and strength. We need to learn from the Chinese team in receiving and defence.
