Poland Fifth Quarterfinalist
Poland lost the first set mainly because they could not pass the ball, and in general there were too many errors on their side. In the second set they were more concentrated, so they did not have any problems winning other three sets. I do not understand my girls, one day they are playing good, while the next day I can't recognize them. Today, we were probabily still sleeping in the first set, but we won the match and that is what counts. Now we are looking forward quarterfinals, and I hope this is going to be the day my team gives the best., said Polish head coach Andrzej Pec. Spanish team did not have real chances to win, and leaves the tournament.

Dominican Republic Continues To Surprise
It was a hard match for the hosting team. Dominican Republic was too strong for them today. We are the youngest team on the tournament, and girls are inexperienced, that is the main reason for our loss. My girls could not stop the player Prisilla Rivera, while she was hitting very strong. Overall, Dominican Republic played better and they deserved this victory., were Croatian head coaches' (Pero Bozic) words after the match. A coach from Dominican Republic, F. Cruz Jimenez, was happy his team proceedes to quarter finals, but he also revealed he was scared they could lose because of his team's bad defense.
