Hamamatsu, Japan, September 30, 2018 - While a typhoon raged outside, Serbia displayed calm inside Hamamatsu Arena as they beat Kenya 3-0 (25-16, 25-9, 25-8) in Pool D at the FIVB Women's World Championship on Sunday night and utilized all 14 players in the contest.
Serbia coach Zoran Terzic: The game was like we expected. We played good enough to win. We gave all our players the chance tonight in preparation for tomorrow's match with Brazil. That will be a big challenge as they are one of the best teams in the world.
Kenya coach Japheth Bulali: We knew Serbia was good. The first set we played OK and then started going down in the second set. In the third set I had to change the players because they were getting tired for no good reason.
Serbia captain Maja Ognejenovic: They fought really well. They controlled our serve early. It was good tonight because we could use all 14 players.
We are prepared for tomorrow's match with Brazil.
Kenya captain Mercy Moim: We played our game but Serbia was stronger and better. They were blocking our attacks and that is why we lost.
