Radecka: This was a match of wasted chances.

The official press conference after the match Poland vs. Korea (0-3)
Poland captain Milena Radecka: “I can say that for us this was a match of wasted chances, because we were leading in every set and losing in crucial moments. Even though we lost, I think the match was enjoyable. Now we can only focus on beating Cuba.”

Korea captain Sook-Ja Lee: “This was our fifth game in the Grand Prix and it was the most difficult one, because we played: one – against Poland, and two – against Polish spectators, who showed how much they love volleyball. Because of that, we were nervous and made more mistakes than usually, especially in service.”

Poland head coach Alojzy Swiderek: “I want to congratulate Korea on this victory. For us it is the first match lost 0-3. It hurts, but I am sure that tomorrow we will come to the court for the match with Cuba and we will play as well as I know we can. Today Korea won with great technical spikes we couldn't block and the amazing Yeon-Koung Kim, who is the best scorer of the tournament. This loss happened to us, but I don't think it was a bad game. We made more mistakes and this is what we have to work on along with gradually building the team and its experience.”

Korea head coach Hyung-Sil Kim: “Definitely Polish team is a strong one, the history shows it. It was a difficult match, especially because Polish spectators. I am very thankful to my players for the victory, especially since one of our players, Youn-Joo Hwang has her birthday today. Tomorrow we're fighting against Argentina and we know it will not be easy. We saw their previous matches and we know, that every game here is a challenge.”
