"We hope Turkey will be back in the best shape for the semi" says Brazilian captain

Brazil’s captain Rosane: “We played very well, especially in the first two sets and in the tie-break. We know that Turkey today lost 3-0 against Belgium and some of their players are sick, I wish them all the best and hope they will recover and be back for the semifinal on Saturday. We do not know them very well, so I guess our staff will not study the videos and stats to get prepared in the best way”.

Coach Luizomar de Moura: “We played a very good match and the first two sets were almost perfect. My congratulations to the Serbian team because they also played a great match. We were not that tired after the previous matches, we prepared very well in Brazil for this Championship and I think we’re ready to go – also physically – until the very end”.

Serbian captain Danica Radenkovic: “I am sad and happy at the same time, because we played a great match but in the end we lost. I hope we’ll have the chance to re-play Brazil in the gold medal match and take revenge, but first of all we’ll have to defeat Belgium”.

Coach Marjana Mirosavljevic: “There are many positives that I can take out of this match. In this World Championship we have been going through so many different experiences, coming back from two sets down or we even played the tie-break after we led 2-0. That was a great match, maybe we are not happy with the final outcome but I am proud of the way my girls played. In the semi we want to take revenge against Belgium as they defeated us at the European Championships and then we’ll look for another great match in the final”.
