Germany Head Coach Guidetti Giovanni: There is not much to say. We were unable to find our rhythm and we had many problems in blocking and attacking. With our weak defense, the opponents made easy attack against us with us. We hope we will play better tomorrow. It will be again a difficult match tomorrow if the team does not improve our blockings.
Germany Team Captain Margareta Kozuch: Congratulations to the China team! We had problems in attacking in the first set. We had problems in our blocking throughout the whole match. We hoped to win in the third set but failed. China really played well in their attacks!
China Head Coach Wang Baoquan: The first set was easy as the German team failed to perform to their standard. Our players started to feel the pressure in the third set leading to many serving errors when the German team performed much better. Under tight situations, the players receiving and passing the ball became nervous which leads to poor attacks. There should be more unity in the teamwork in order to solve the problems. As for the match tomorrow against the USA team which has many experienced players, it will be a difficult match and the team might be tight again.
China Team Captain Wei Qiuyue: This is our first time we meet Germany in the 2010 FIVB World Grand Prix. This match is a great training opportunity for our team. The German team did not perform to their best. We do hope that both teams can continue to excel and improve in the future.
