Skowronska-Dolata: We were focused on this match till the last ball


Polish and Kazakh players and coaches visit with press after their match

Katarzyna Skowro?ska-Dolata (Poland team captain): "We are satisfied with this first victory in 2013 World Grand Prix serie. I am happy to finish this match within three sets and that we were focused on this match till the last ball. Now it's time to rest and also to prepare to tommorow's match with Germany. I hope we will show our best game, being well-prepared for this clash." 

Korinna Ishimtseva (Kazakhstan team captain): "First of all we did not manage that match on the way we had planned. We played not so well in reception and maybe if we would play better in the reception, we may change."

Oleksandr Gutor (Kazakhstan team coach): "Today Poland's national team was the better one and all I have to say is that I wish them good luck and may God bless them with health and strength to be able to go forward. Well, we had our plans and tactic, but our opponent disabled us playing on the way we planned. "

Piotr Makowski (Poland team coach): "I'd like to thank Oleksandr for those kind wishes and I hope they will come true. Honestly I supposed that this match would be harder for us, something like on the beginning of this game. Kazahstan played well by the previous weekend, even they lost with their opponents. We had some doubts, but finally we were able to show our best. There were some moments, while we lost control, but happily we ended match in three sets. Now we must be ready for the clash with Germany."
