Slovakian coach admits his players' form did not live up to expectations

Brazil head coach Luizomar de Moura: "I think Slovakia played well today. Now, we have to go back and prepare a game plan to play Dominican Republic tomorrow. The match against Slovakia is a good start for my players, but I think they are still excited. This might be because they are playing the first match of the championship. However, I’m happy with their performance."

Captain Rosane Maggioni: I’m happy with my team-mates’ form. I hope we can win again in our next match against Dominican Republic."

Slovakia head coach Marek Hencek: "Before the game, I expected that my girls would play well. However, we played good only in the first set. After that, their performance did not live up to my expectation. They made several mistakes. In the second set, Brazil served well, while our reception was bad. Tomorrow, we have to take on Italy. If our reception is not good, I think we have a little chance of beating the Italians."

Captain Jaroslava Smatanikova: "I think my team-mates played good only in the first set. I admit that we played nervously. I hope we will play better tomorrow."
