We kept our concentration today: Manabe

A message of support for Japan
 Japan coach Masayoshi Manabe: Today's game was different from yesterday. Today, we kept our concentration, but really we didn't show our real strengths. But I am satisfied with the way we played. 

(Re. Being outblocked 11-1): The Dominicans didn't have such a complicated pattern of offense and we tried to stop them, but this is something we have to solve.

Japan captain Erika Araki: We won but we made mistakes and our block didn't work well, so next week we want better blocking.

Japan No. 12 Saori Kimura: Yesterday, both myself and the team didn't play so well, so we had to change. 

Dominican Republic coach Marcos Kwiek: Compared to our previous matches, today was much better. As a team, our movement was good and I was pleased with that, and our offense is improving. We still have many things to work on and I hope in Hong Kong we will improve.

Dominican Republic captain Milagros Cabral: Today, Japan serves very well and our attacks didn't work so well. Until the first part of the fourth set, we were doing OK, but then we started to lose our concentration.
