Brazil overpowered Japan in straight sets (25-17, 25-23, 25-18) in their round-robin match at the World Grand Champions Cup on Friday.



Brazil, ranked No. 1 in the world, just had too much power on offense and defense for the host nation. The Brazilians pounded spikes and drilled several wicked serves on the way to a comprehensive victory.

Brazil moved to 3-0 with the triumph, while Japan fell to 1-2.

The match marked the sixth time the countries have played in the World Grand Champions Cup and 40th in all competitions. Brazil is 6-0 against Japan in the WGCC and 30-10 alltime.

Luis Felipe Marques Fonteles sparked Brazil with 12 points. Wallace De Souza contributed 11 points in the win.

Yu Koshikawa led Japan with 13 points, while Yusuke Ishijima added 10.

Japan challenged Brazil in the second set, but could not muster enough force to overtake it. Brazil passed and received well throughout the match in a clinical performance. Japan displayed stretches of good play but there were too infrequent to make a difference.
