China's preparations pay off in Thailand sweep


Osaka, Japan, October 7, 2018 - China Head Coach Jenny Lang Ping: We knew Thailand played a great game against Russia and the United States in the first round so we prepared very hard for this match. The Thai players have great control skills, combinations and hit a strong serve. These are the three things we have learned about the Thai team.

China Captain Zhu Ting: The key point about today's game was that we were cooperating with each other all the time in order to get the victory. As captain I want to motivate my players so I was talking to them a lot during the game.

Thailand Captain Thinkaow Pleumjit: The match was very tough because China is a tall team and very speedy. We tried to keep a high block but China is fast and we could not deal with that, especially the China No. 2 Zhu. I tried to hit a strong serve but China received really well.

Thailand Head Coach Danai Sriwacharamaytakul: Before the game of course we knew it was going to be very tough so we prepared as best we could. I am always happy to play against China because they have great skills, speed, power and height. We learn a lot every time we play them.
