Italian celebrating their ticket to the quarterfinals

Except from Peru (0-3 versus Japan), the first and second ranked teams from each pool proved too strong for their challengers.

Serbia opened the round of 16 with an undisputed straight-set win over Chinese Taipei. 2011 Girls’ U18 world champions Turkey followed suite with a quite easy 3-0 triumph against Mexico.

World No. 18 Russia enter the quarterfinals after a 3-0 win against Egypt, the same as titleholder Italy who came from behind to overpower Bulgaria 3-1 in Wednesday’s third match at Vodova sports hall.

World No. 1 China fended off a spirited challenge from host Czech Republic on Wednesday to continue their unbeaten run at the 2013 FIVB Women’s U20 World Championship. Brazil (3-0 versus Algeria) and the Dominican Republic (3-1 against Colombia) made their home works as well as they both claimed their fifth consecutive win here in Brno.

Japan is the only third ranked team from pool play that made it to the quarterfinals. The Asians overcame Peru in straight sets. The key moment of the match came at the end of the second set when Japan bounced back valiantly to outfox Peru in extremis.
