“We are glad that we managed to give a huge resistance to Zenit. I was barely standing on my feet during the fifth set because I gave everything I had in the previous sets. Maxim Mikhailov was a key player for Zenit to win this game after a good display in the tie-break. Anyway, I hope we will improve our performance game by game,” explains Volkov.
Recall that Zenit barely beat Fakel in five sets 25-22, 17-25, 25-23, 20-25, 15-9.
