Brilliant serving contributed to our victory - Netherlands coach

The Netherlands head coach Avital Selinger



Captain Aleksandra Jagielo:

"Congratulations to the Netherlands. We performed badly today and I want to forget about today’s match as soon as possible."

Head coach Matlak Jerzy:

"Like what the captain said, I do not have too much to say. We will play better in the coming matches."



The Netherlands


Head coach Avital Selinger:

"I must congratulate my well-organized team. The team put in a great effort in serving and receiving and had very few unforced errors. Their stable performance determined today’s victory. I expect our team to improve everyday. Poland had a difficult time, there was only one player in the Polish side who could manage to gain some substantial points. Our excellent performance reduced Poland’s attacking power to a very low degree."


Comments on the coming match against Dominican Republic:

"We will not underestimate the abilities of the Dominican Republic as they are a very good team. We will maintain our progress and concentrate on our team’s performance. We are concerned about our team but not the opponents."


Planning for the Final:

"We plan day by day and match by match. We do not know who will play in the Final, so we will focus on the matches in the coming two days."


Netherlands lost to China last time, any restructuring or strategy on the coming match against China:

"We lost eight weeks ago when we just started practicing in summer. We did play poorly while China played very well. Yet, we will continue to do our best.

We will be in top-shape on Sunday and so will be China. It is going to be a great show for the fans."


Netherlands Captain Manon Flier:

"We played very well as a team and we served exceptionally well. We showed and performed what we are able to play as we do in our practices."
