City: Bangkok; Hall : Mall Convention Center
"Poland played a good match against us. Their attack plans, particularly fast spikes are very exceptional. We found no rhythm to fight back. Above all, they are much taller than us and we had problems attempting to block them. Against USA in the next match, we have to study their strategy plan. They are tall and can block our spikes effectively." - head coach Shoichi Yanagimoto

"We played well not only on serving, but also blocking and digging. I'm happy with my girls' form, especially in the third set, where they came back strongly after trailing them all the way. We have yet seen the Thai team play and therefore, it's necessary to study their video. I think we will have a good match against the host side." - head coach Andrzej Niemczyk
