FIVB World Grand Prix 2007
Press Conference
Cuba found the right rhythm

Cuba head coach Antonio Perdomo speaks at the post-match press conference



Head Coach Antonio Perdomo: Today’s match was difficult for both teams because they were not in good condition. Cuba could produce suitable play but Dominica could not.


Captain Yumillka Ruiz: Games between Cuba and the Dominican Republic are always close, and today was the same. But we played really well at the end to get the victory. We are improving as a team from last year.



Dominican Republic


Head Coach Beato Cruz: We played well at the beginning of this game but as the game moved on we started to make many mistakes. I believe that is the reason why we lost. On the other hand, Cuba was well balanced and were able to keep their good rhythm.


Captain Cosiri Rodriguez: We started off well but towards the end of the match we missed a lot and that is why we lost. For tomorrow we need to concentrate more and do not want to make the same mistakes as today.


Milagros Cabral: In most of the matches we play we seem to make mistakes at the end, not just this time.
