Mr. Ho-Chul KIM, Head Coach of the Team of Korea commented the first match of the 6th week-end of the World League 2009 Intercontinental Round:
The Serbian Team showed great experience in this match. A match is well played if you fail to make mistakes and this was not the case. We have to improve our block and tomorrow we’ll do everything to improve the play of our mid blockers.
Mr. Igor Kolakovic, Head Coach of the Serbian Team:
I am very glad that we won this match even though we played in very difficult conditions. We went into the first set playing without the tension necessary for such a determined team. The reception and service and all elements of the game will have to be improved in order to face such an opponent. However, I am glad that we won here in Nis as we lost the last match we played against the French Team here.
Mr. Sang-Yeoul KIM, Captain of the Korean Team stated:
I regretthat we didn’t play a better match. We made a lot of mistakes and we definitely have to improve our play in order to have a better game tomorrow.
Mr. Nikola Grbic, Captain of the Serbian Team:
We played quite heavily in these difficult conditions. We started playing almost too relaxed for such an intensive match and such players as are the persistent Koreans. In the next sets we actually started playing as we wanted without the risk of losing. We definitely hope to improve the game for tomorrow.
