YUMILKA RUIZ (CUBA No. 1, CAPTAIN): "Both teams played well but Italy were slightly better than us. Italy aimed for our weak points and that's how they won the game."

LUIS FELIPE CALDERON (CUBA HEAD COACH): "Italy played at their best to beat us, and I think they should be the champions of the World Grand Prix. We did not play as well as we did against China or Brazil."

SARA ANZANELLO (ITALY No. 5): "I am very satisfied with today's game. At first I was very nervous but our game progressed, and Cuba seemed to give up."

MARCO BONITTA (ITALY HEAD COACH): "It was a wonderful game, and I would say the same if we had lost. I think the serving was the highlight for the spectators. We have won three games because of the support of all our staff."
