Slovakia head coach: "It's possible that we next take on China. If so, we must play much better than this to beat the Chinese."

Slovakia head coach Marek Hencek: “I fielded several substitutions because three key players in my team – Tatiana Crkonova, Radka Kubaliakova and Nina Herelova are sick. They have no fever, but just feel too tired from playing too many matches. This match against Egypt is much easier for us. It’s great that we did not lose a set in the match. It’s possible that we might take on China the following day. If so, we must play much better than this to beat the Chinese.”

Captain Jaroslava Samtanikova: “We did not play up to our standard. I’m not satisfied with our form despite the fact that we won the match.”

Egypt head coach Badrawy Hesham: “We did not play well. Our reception is not good. We led initially in the second and third sets, but played inconsistently to go down. Now, it’s possible that we have to take on Tunisia in the 15th-16th play-off.”

Captain Walaa Amer: “We did not receive well. We made too many mistakes.”
