China's captain Jiao Shuai: "Generally speaking, we played well today and had a good start, but Serbia are a very good team, they played better than us. During this game, we faced many problems, and we didn’t do well in some details. We can play better in the next match."


China's coach Zhou Jian’an: "It was a difficult game today, we played well in the first two sets. But there was great distance between two teams’ level like attacking and defending. Serbia is a good team, they can turn better soon after their mistakes in the game. Anyhow, through this game, we found many problems that still exist in our team, such as we can not play well under great pressure.It was a good game for us to improve ourselves."


Serbia's captain Dragan Stankovic: "We came here to win these two games. It was important for us to be first in our group. I knew the first game was always difficult and today’s match proved this. China are a good team, they beat France and they are better than many European teams. But we won at last."


Serbia's coach Kolakovic Igor: "In the first two sets, we made some mistakes and didn’t play our best condition. China played well today and had good defence in the beginning. But after that, we improved a lot and won at last, it was a good result."
