Last weekend was the first tournament played in a series of World Grand Prix. Polish women in Group D in Lodz defeated Serbia 3-2, lost to Italy 1:3 and Brazil 2:3.
Thus, with three points, white and red took fourth place, last place in the group. “Cast of the tournament was very good “the coach of the Polish team, Alojzy Świderek said.
“I am most sorry for defeat in the match with Italy. We definitely did not play at a level at which we should play, as we did the first two sets with Brazil. Our game is still not what we want to present. It is not fluent, we make a lot of simple mistakes”.
Polish women did not have time to rest. Even this morning they had a strong training, but about 19.05 flew from Warsaw to China. In the Chinese city Foshan they will play in the second World Grand Prix tournament. In Group G they will clash with South Korea, Taiwan and China. “It’s hard to say whether this tournament will be easier “Alojzy Świderek said “This will be different volleyball. The most important is that we play our game, then we can beat anyone. For sure China will be a very difficult opponent, the more because they’re playing at home. Korea also presents a good team. These two teams are preparing for the Olympic Games, so there may be different castling in storage. Taiwan strongly deviates from these two opponents, but it cannot be underestimated”.
