CHEN, Zhonghe (China Head Coach)
"As we all know USA excels in both attacking and defensing, we have to get ourselves very well-prepared for the game against USA. I expect only a very small difference of around one to two points in the coming match. So long as we are able to perform normally, we may probably win tomorrow's game. "

FENG, Keng (China Team Captain)
"We did not start the game with sufficient concentration and our pace was not that satisfactory. We hope that we could be more engaged in the coming match against USA."

NATAPHON, Srisamutnak (Thailand Head Coach)
" We were not nervous as we have played several times with China before. However, we are quite nervous to play against USA and Italy since we have not met them before."

PATCHAREE, Sangmuang (Thailand Team Captain)
" We were not very nervous as we know that we are not as competitive as China. In fact, our team lost the rhythm in the third set."
