Zurich, Switzerland, October 13, 2013 – Asian champions Guangdong Evergrande celebrated a hard-earned 3:1 (24-26, 25-23, 25-18, 25-21) win over host Volero Zurich to claim bronze at 2013 FIVB Women’s Club World Championship. It was a successful revenge for Volero’s 3:1 triumph in the preliminary round.  

 

Guangdong Evergrande captain Ruoqi Hui: “It was a tough game today against Volero Zurich. Our comeback in the second set was very important for the rest of the game. We displayed a strong fighting spirit. Our defensive play was well-organised and  I personally played better this time.”

 

Guangdong Evergrande coach Lang Ping: “We are happy with the bronze medal. I think our players know each other better now and we start to improve our level. An important difference between the first match against Volero Zurich and the one today was that we knew our opponent better.”

 

Volero Zurich captain Nneka Onyejekwe: “We experienced many ups and downs today. We started well but could not control Ting Zhu and their fast middles. I don’t know why we could not pull through.”

 

Volero Zurich coach Jan de Brandt: “It’s a pity. We made a very impressive comeback in the first set but lost focus in the crucial moments of the match. We are not used to play constantly at such a high level. China saved more balls in defense what helped them to set up a strong transition game. We won the duel against them in the preliminary phase; today they were better.”
