They have been playing an unbelievable Grand Prix. They are playing with heart not just technique and tactics. I am sure we will continue like that.  It is important to train hard like this and try during the matches.  If you look to Grand Prix history, how many teams to win two rounds in a row, you will see world’s best teams like Cuba, Brazil Italy. We are very happy to achieve this success.”
