Puerto Rican captain Vilmarie Mojica: "We started the match playing in the same level as Brazil. After we committed some unusual mistakes, we could not avoid the defeat. When we failed in receiving, our performance got down".
Puerto Rican head coach Carlos Cardona: "I am happy with our first match in the World Grand Prix. We played really well in the first set, but, unfortunately, from the second partial on we could not contain Brazil. We failed specially in spiking".
Brazilian captain Danielle Lins: "I can not deny I started the match a little bit nervous. But Jose Roberto and the players helped me and I could make a good match. We are improving and still have a long time to adjust our game".
Brazilian head coach Jose Roberto Guimaraes: "Puerto Rican team plays in a really fast way, specially with its wing-spikers. We had problems with them in the first set. It was not easy blocking them. From the second set on we adjusted our serve and that made us block and dig better. I am glad I could use all the players in this match".
