"I'm very satisfied with my girls' performance. In fact, I think that my team stood a good chance to win some sets from Poland, but we made unforced mistakes. As far as I'm concerned, our yesterday's game was much better than today. I decided to rest captain Patcharee (Sangmuang) in the third set because she is unfit and has an arm injury. That's why I replaced her with left-hander Nurak (Nokputta). Against Japan in the final match, I think it must be more thrilling. They are not too tall and I think we can have chances of counter-attacking. We have to rely more on attacks and serves," Thai head coach Sutichai Chanbunchee.

"We played well, but a bit below par than yesterday. Thailand also played well with good defence. Their weak point is that they are much shorter than my girls and they could not block our spikes. Tomorrow, we will take on USA. To raise our chance of qualifying to the grand finals in Sendai, we have to beat USA. I think my girls will do their best to achieve such goal," Polish head coach Andrzej Niemczyk
