Head Coach Avital Selinger: Our team level has improved a lot. We started very slowly in the first set and we could have played better. In the second set our rhythm of play was getting better and better. In the fourth set we missed too many chances to finish the game. Although we won the game we still have a lot of work to do. It was not an easy game but the technique of our players was better than the Chinese players. We played very hard. We hope to play a better game from tomorrow.
Captain Manon Flier: I am really happy about the win. I am glad to win. We did a great job and it was a tough fight, which is normally the case against China. I think our attack was a little better. We fought for it really hard.
Cai Bin: Today the rhythm of the team was not good. The players were not relaxed. Actually we had a chance to do something but we did not have the experience. The players are young and were nervous. Tomorrow we want to be more relaxed.
Captain Wei Qiuyue: It was unstable for our team. We had a chance to win but could not use this to our advantage. Today’s mistakes were down to a lack of communication.
Wang Yimei: We had a chance to win, as the captain said, but we had a lot of mistakes. This was the cause of our defeat. Not only today but I experienced many tough games like this. Today especially my spike points total was very low, so I need to find more balance in my jump and spike.
