Coach Alexander Karikov rotated players, toyed around experimenting with setter Pavel Pankov as opposite, and at the end came up with a 25-13, 25-18, 25-16 triumph attained in just 67 minutes.
Already with nine points resulting from three straight-set victories, the Russians have established an insurmountable gap with only one day to play in the preliminary round.
“Today I changed number 11, our setter (Pankov) to play as an opposite because I think that will be his position in the future,” Karikov said. “I did that thinking about his future as a player.”
