Russia's serving and blocking overcame us - Kolakovic


Russia captain Mikhaylov Maxim: It will be my first final and I am very happy I can play it. We did a good job. Today we were a united team.

Russia coach Daniele Bagnoli: In the first set we had the chance to play well but anyhow we were lucky and won it. In the second set the younger players got over the pressure and played well serving and blocking. In the third one we controlled the match. It was a big goal we had set and we achieved it as we will play for the title tomorrow.

Serbia captain Janic Bojan: We did not play well. In the first set we had the chance of winning but we lost it too quickly. If you give Russia any chance they know how to make good use of it. They have a very powerful serve and we could not control it.

Serbia coach Igor Kolakovic: Russia played outstanding well, especially with their serving and blocking. With those tools we could not unite our playing with our mind.
