Hamamatsu, Japan, September 30, 2018 - Brazil notched their second consecutive straight sets triumph with a comprehensive 3-0 (25-14, 25-20, 25-22) victory over the Dominican Republic at the FIVB Women's World Championship on Sunday afternoon and Brazil's coach cited his team's dynamic play as part of the reason for the result.
Brazil coach Jose Guimaraes: It's always a tough match for us against the Dominican Republic. We played dynamic volleyball in the first and second sets. We know each other well, so we were prepared for the match. Our service, blocking and positioning worked well. It was important to get the win today. The next game against Serbia will be a tough one.
Dominican Republic coach Marcos Kwiek: We are not happy, but we have lost to two of the best teams in the world so far. With good reception we can do good attacks. We must improve our reception.
Brazil captain Natalia Pereira: This was a tough match. They are a tall team and have good techique with serving and blocking. The third set was difficult for us.
Domincan Republic captain Bethania De La Cruz: They have good defense, reception, blocking and serving. We would not deal with their techniques. We will try to improve for tomorrow's match.
Brazil player Tandara Caixeta: It was a tough game. They had some heavy strikes on attack. We are happy with our performance today.
