Felipe Calderon (Cuba coach)
We played against a very competitive team. The match was very useful for us to improve our patterns and skills with two new players in the team.

Cuba Capt. Yumilka Luaces Ruiz
We started the Grand Prix playing very good volley against a very competitive team that put us under pressure for the entire game.

Hee Wan Lan (Germany coach - KOR)
Although in some faces we had a drop of concentration in defence, I am satisfied of the match my team played. We are a lot of young players. We will have to work a lot to improve.

Germany Capt. Cornelia Dumler
It was a very hard game. But we played well, indeed. We lost all the three sets at the extra points. And against Cuba. That must means something.
