We knew the Dominicans' weak point: Terzic

The Dominicans defend
 Serbia coach Zoran Terzic: The match against the Dominican Republic was very important for us because we knew that if we lost today our chance of going to the final round would be very small. We knew the weak side of the Dominican team so we made good serving at the start of the game and we won, not easily, but when you win 3-0 you can say you won easily.

Serbia captain Maja Ognjenovic: Honestly, it was a very easy match for us – easier than we expected – but more importantly it was a win for us. We knew the weakness of the Dominican team was receptions and we used that.

Serbia No. 2 Jovana Brakocevic: We knew they have problems with reception so we tried to serve harder and tried to play better against their block and tried to catch them because they are strong attackers.

Dominican Republic coach Marcos Kwiek: The only thing our team can do is to try to go forward from now on. As a team, I don't think we have shown our real strength. Today, the Serbian service was very good and that was a cause of our loss. But we are improving set by set and getting better. We have a difficult game tomorrow against Japan, but we will try hard to show our real potential.

Dominican Republic captain Milagros Cabral: The Serbian team was better than us. Our attack was blocked and that led to this result. We have reset our minds for tomorrow's match against Japan.
