It was simply a tremendous performance by Serbia. They crushed Russia in the 1st set by 25:9, then they had just a bit more troubles in the 2nd set – 25:22, while the third and the final set was quite special.

Serbia once again had a flying start as they quickly escaped to 11:6. However, Russia answered back by 9:1 run and took over the lead at 15:12. But, one more comeback was on the way. Serbian troops tied the score at 16:16 and then went in front to 18:16!!!

The only thing that Russia managed to do is to equalize at 18:18, but they stopped right there. Serbia dominated the finish of the set and ended the match by 25:21, 3-0 in sets!!!
