"We played a great match and now we go for gold" says the Serbian coach

Belgian captain van Hecke: “I am very disappointed, but Serbia played a great match and they deserve to go for the gold medal. We had a difficult start but then we played better and better. For sure now we’ll go for the bronze”.

Coach van de Vyver: “Serbia played a great match, so congratulations to them. In the first set we did not play as aggressively as we are used to but then we get into the right rhythm. I think the turning point was the end of the second set, we missed our chance there and the match turned into a climb for us”.

Serbian captain Danica Radenkovic: “We really wanted to win this match, so badly, and I think we played an amazing match. There was a lot of pressure, but I am happy we did it”.

Coach Mirosavljevic: “My players were so tense and anxious, sometimes they could not breathe properly, so I was wondering whether they were sick or not. Anyway, we played a great match, our serve was extremely solid and now we are sure we’ll get a medal. For sure we aim at the gold; we lost against Brazil in the second round but I think there we entered the match with a lack of self-confidence, I hope tomorrow it will be a totally different story”.
