Newcomer Serbia has impressed with strong performances thus far. They continued their run in the game against Italy, challenging their more experienced opponents. Eventually, the Squadra Azzurra kept the upper hand driving home a 2:0 victory.
Marilena Menz (ITA): First of all, we did not underestimate Serbia and many things started to work out really well for us in the second set. We had to overcome some small obstacles, but all in all we played really well.
Kassandra Hagen (SRB): Unfortunately, we did not manage to win the first set. Our defense is not used to standing on the base line. If both defenders stand in the middle of the field it is hard to defend long balls.
