Menezes, Valeska (Brazil captain)
In the first set, we have not make use of the chances given and we started badly. In the second set, although it become better, the points are very close. And we have made mistakes that we shouldn't make. We are not calm enough and too aggressive. We did not play well as we have during the training.

(China Player No. 5)
All of us have good preparation. She played well and she knew her actual position in the court.

José Guimaraes (Brazil coach)
Congratulate to the China team. They played well and demonstrate the skills as they played in the Olympic Games. The China team did not give any chance for us to lead 2 or 3 more points, even if we were leading, they can still manage to recover. As the captain says, the team is lack of calmness. The Brazil team is still a young team and inexperienced. Once again, congratulation to the China team.

Chen Zhonghe (China coach)
The Brazil team is a good team. Today the match is very exciting. The spirit of the team is better than us no matter how tough the game is. Whether they are behind or ahead of us, they can still manage to control the match. As they are more well-prepared, they are able to play all the tactics as planned, specially in blocking.
