The Serbians were generally stronger

Taylor Sandor, Captain of USA: “We did not play well. The main problems were probably in passing, we could not manage to pass properly and there were even some problems with blocking. We could have done better taking into account that we won yesterday.”

Aleksandar Atanasijevic, Captain of Serbia: “It was a difficult match because the US-Team is really good. Our receiver and attacker Uros Kovacevic was really good. We are now waiting for the match against Iran that will be fundamental for us”.

Andy Read, Coach of the USA: “The Serbian team definitely did it better. They were really good, in particular at serving. I have to give my congratulations to them. My guys were able to compete at the same level just at some time during the match, but the Serbians were generally stronger. We could not find the right rhythm. As regards to tomorrow’s match, we have to win to pass to the second round. It is not easy for the players to win two matches in a row. This might be one of the reasons for which we had some problems today”.

Milan Djuricic, Coach of Serbia: “It is the second winning for us during this World Championship. We played better than yesterday and we are now near to pass to the second round, but we now have to focus for tomorrow’s match against Iran”.
