Thailand captain Wilavan Apinyapong: I’m glad that we proved again that we can beat one of the world’s top teams. It’s not easy to beat Cuba. We had to use all we had and we tried to reduce our unforced errors. I hope my team will gain experience from this match for Sunday’s match against Brazil.
Cuba coach Juan Gala Rodriguez: Congratulations on Thailand’s win. We made too many mistakes in this match, particularly our serves. Before the match, I thought that my girls would come up with improved form, but the mistakes remained.
Thailand coach Kiattipong Radchatagriengkai: I’m very delighted that we beat Cuba again. We all were very tired from playing in this tough match. We learned several skills from them. It’s hard to score points against them. They played very well up. I wish them good luck in their last match against Argentina.
