Greece – Slovenia 0:3 (16-25, 21-25, 16-25)

Slovenia head coach Joze Casar: “It was tough as we had a lot of pressure on our shoulders, everyone said that we were the favorites. Greece is a strong team but we have raised our level this year. I am looking forward to the derby with Serbia in the gold medal match. I think pressure is on them as they haven’t lost a single set in this tournament.”

Slovenia captain Eva Mori: “Usually we play really bad games against Greece but today we managed to follow our game plan and won 3:0. It’s a very special feeling to play for gold. Serbia is a good team and it’s hard to predict the result of the final – we’ll see it tomorrow.”

Greece head coach Konstantinos Papadopoulos: “After today’s loss, everyone is disappointed. So am I. The result was not the worst thing today but the way we played. The team entered the court without being ready for the match and with the wrong fighting spirit.”

Greece captain Anthi Vasilantonaki: “We didn’t make what we were supposed to do on the court and that was decisive. Tomorrow we’ll have a match where both teams will be eager to win the bronze medal. It will be a tough game for us.”
