Both teams have qualified for the quarterfinals at the end of Day 3. Given it will play against Kenya in the remaining encounter prior to the quarterfinals, no.1 is practically guaranteed to ‘Seleção’. Beating Serbia, Brazilian ladies gave their head coach José Roberto Guimarães ‘Zé Roberto’ the perfect gift for his 67th birthday.

The winning side had as many as five players in double digits in scoring, led by Tandara Caixeta (19 points). Gabriela Guimarães ‘Gabi’ made 82.4 % reception (15/17; 1 error). Tijana Bošković was the main option in the Serbian attack. She poured in 32 points out of 62 attempts. Bojana Milenković set up 4 blocks.
