China succeed in stopping Chilean star

China's Ju Genyin instructed their players to concentrate in stopping Dusan Bonicic

Tijuana, Mexico, July 3, 2013 – China’s strategy was to keep Chilean Dusan Bonacic at bay and they succeeded with their plan as the best scorer of the tournament was stopped to only 16 points in their round of sixteen match on Wednesday.

China’s coach Ju Genyin spoke very high about the attacking skills of Bonacic as well as his versatility.

Yu Yaochen, captain of China: “We played a good game with good performance in all the skills. Also the team kept the spirit very high and we want to go further in the tournament.”

Dusan Bonacic, coach of Chile: “We need to turn the page and concentrate in finishing among the top-ten. It was as tough match as we expected. We knew it was not going to be easy. China played with a good blocking and great defense.”

Ju Genyin, coach of China: “I could see a very nervous Chilean team in the first set and it impacted the rest of the match for them. Our team focused on trying to stop player number 9 (Dusan Bonacici) who has a lot of ability turning the wrist while attacking. We succeeded stopping him in the first set but not the rest of the match.”

Daniel Nejamkin, coach of Chile: “We played within our possibilities. It was very difficult for us to stay with China. They have power in the attack and also block and play good defense. I just congratulate them for going into the quarterfinals.”
