Head coach of Russia, Mrs Nadejda Chelikhova:

"It often happens that after a day off it is hard to come back to the competition. The match was not a great show, there was too many errors on both sides. China is a very strong team, we had to put a lot of efforts to win".

Captain of the Russian team, Maria Borodakova:

"That was a terrible game, beacuse both team had problems with motivation. All the players did not want to involve a maximum of energy".

Head coach of China, Mrs Nan Lin:

"The Russians performed very well and we made too many errors which should be avoided. We could not break through the Russian block, especially".

Captain of the Chinese team, Yanan Yang:

"That was our first match here in Pila and I think we were a little bit tired after a move from Wloclawek. We all missed our normal disposition".
