Serbia's captain Bojan Janic: "I would like to congratulate the Italian team, who played an excellent match. They were more determined and they deserved this victory. I don’t have an explanation for such a poor performance from my team, we want to qualify to the Final Round so much, and maybe this is the reason we felt pressure of winning, and we stumbled on court. We still have chances, tomorrow is a new day, and if we win there is a possibility for us."
Italy's captain Valerio Vermiglio: "It was a good match for us. We were a little bit shaky in the first set, but after that we took the control of the match, and hopefully it will be the same tomorrow. We are playing against a great team, but if we continue playing like this, I’m sure we will do our job. Of course, we have to wait and see what is going to happen in the last match."
Serbia's coach Igor Kolokovic: "I would like to congratulate the Italian team for the victory and excellent play. They played very well, and we repeated the mistakes from the matches with the French. Unfortunately, we disappointed our fans, and we didn’t look like the team we are. We will try to improve our game, and we hope for the miracle that will carry us to the Final Round in Argentina."
Italy's coach Andrea Anastasi: "We played an interesting match today, it was very important to win, and I’m happy we did it. Still we have to play one more match, and it will be very difficult, so we have to focus on that because we want to find ourselves in Cordoba at the Final Tournament."
