Japan captain Erika Araki: „It was first game for us in this edition of WGP. We couldn’t do everything what we planned to do but the competition has been already started so we will try to work harder and harder and improve our game in the next games.”


Netherlands captain Manon Flier: „I am really happy about this victory. Before the game we talked that we would be able to show constant level and we actually did us during this match. We showed that we can pull away and perform very well. In the third set we had some difficulties with our play but we finished great.”


Japan Head Coach Masayoshi Manabe: „Today’s game was first for our team in WGP 2009. We have some new, young players in the rooster and today they played very nervous. The Netherlands service was excellent and this is the main reason that we lost the game.”


Netherlands Head Coach Avital Selinger: „I agree with everything that has been already said. My team played very concentrated from the beginning. They executed very well the serving and managed to reduce the speed of the Japanese spikers. They also defended a lot of balls and did not make a lot of unforced errors. ”
