Fernanda Rodrigues (captain of Brazil): “I am happy with the victory. The first two sets we played very well, then we lost concentration. Fortunately, everything ended well. Poland has been very difficult opponent and the match could have turned out differently”.
Alojzy Świderek (the Polish national team coach):”I congratulate the Brazilian victory in the match and on the whole tournament. For me, for many years, Brazil is a model in conducting training from an early age to the highest level. I admire this group primarily for playing block-defense. This is what Brazil plays and wins. In addition, they have a very good counter-attack. I hope we meet again in the final”.
Jose Guimaraes (Brazil coach):”We played very well today in the first two sets running service-block-defense. Later, Polish women significantly improved their reception. Poland played better in each segment in the third set. In the tie-break we had more luck. Paula went to serve service and we have gained 4 points, which brought us victory”.
