Ivona Svobodnikova, Captain of Czech Republic
"We thought the result was going to be a 3-0 in favor of China. We are satisfied with our game but not with the result."
Wang Na, Captain of China
"We played together as a team and accepted the challenge. I think our team is going to play better as the competition goes on."
Stanislav Mitac, Head Coach of Czech Republic
"Congratulations to China for a good game. There was a very little difference between the two teams. The key for the loss was that we didn’t play good in the second set. It would have been different ahead 2-0 than tied 1-1. In the tie-breaker we made a couple of errors and suddenly were behind 4-1 and never recovered."
Qi Lixia, Head Coach of China
"Both teams were very competitive tonight but we were luckier than them and won the match. We have a great deal of respect for player number 11 (Tereza Vanzurova) who is an outstanding athlete. This is the first international competition for our players and they were a little nervous at the beginning. We will improve with the tournament."
