Dominican Republic used their most dangerous weapon, Brayelin Elizabeth Martinez, offering her the majority of the offensive ball. She managed to score 20 points, plus 1 block, but that wasn’t enough, especially in the one-way second set, to oppose the more balanced play of Serbia. The Caribbean team suffered as well in passing, with Serbia being able to score 11 aces till the end.
Dominican Republic captain Marie Pamela Soriano: “I am disappointed, I can’t understand our performance today. Congratulation to Serbia for a deserved win.“
Dominican Republic coach Roberto Rocha Wagner: “I am satisfied with our performance of my team on this World Championship. We were better from game to game, it is a young team so I would like to thank my players for what they’ve done here.“
Serbia coach Ratko Pavlicevic: “We played well today especially with service and block. From our final result I cannot say we were successful at this World Championship, but we lost in a quaterfinal against Brasil and we won against the finalist Japan. I think it is a good result.“
Serbia captain Bianka Busa: “I would like to thank my team for our performance today. We are happy and now we are looking forward to go back home.“
