When you think China will outplay Korea 3 sets to nil, Korea stun them with great serve and quality defense. I was hoping more from the Chinese reception and out of system attacks.

Its similar with Japan, they played so well and 2 losses so far. Otherwise, China is in main draw anyway (Pool A), even if they lost.

Re: @Logan Tom
Ni Yan is the best blocker in this competition. Her average block per set in the highest. And she scores more points than Anna Danesi. Ni Yan definitely is the 1st Middle Blocker in this competition. She deserved the title. Reply
