INGRID VISSER (NETHERLANDS No. 15, CAPTAIN): "We started well but from the second set we lost our form and got worse."

AVITAL SELINGER (NETHERLANDS HEAD COACH): "As the match progressed China changed their tactics and found their own pace, especially their attacks from the right side. They were very effective and our defence had a difficult time."

ZHOU SUHONG (CHINA No. 7): "I was not in a good condition mentally, and both my serving and attacking were not very effective. However, we could put together many quick attacks after the second set."

CHEN ZHONGHE (CHINA HEAD COACH): "I felt the pressure because this China team is younger than the previous one, but today we did a good job, especially in the centre of the court."
