China Head Coach-(ChenZhonGue)-
The servings and blockings were outstanding, yet our players were quite passive and made quite a number of mistakes in the first two sets. Towards the end of the game, our team played better. I was satisfied with the overall performance of our team. Our team will try our best in the FIVB World Grand Prix Finals in Japan.

China Team Player (#7 Zhou Suhong)-
Our opponent played very well, especially in their serving and attacking. Their serving was a great threat to us in the game.

Dominican Republic Head Coach (Pror. Francisco Cruz Jimenez)- It was a very demanding match for the players. I am satisfied with the overall performance. It was certainly an important game for us as it proved that what we have been training is correct. I hope for better competition in the future ahead of us.

Dominican Republic Team player (#15 Cosiri Rodriguez Andino De)- It was a very good and beautiful match. We played with great intensity and we played pretty well in the first two sets. Yet, we went down a little bit in the third set. We put in the match what we have practised. There are two matches ahead and this game could help us to play better against Germany and Italy.
