After the match, Hyundai E&C head coach Kang Sung-hyung said, “In the first set, I felt like the opponent came with a higher height, but our first set went well,” adding, “We prepared well for Silva’s attack course, but later we changed the course again and struggled with Silva. I had a hard time with Kang’s side of the court. Our play was difficult because we couldn’t breathe when things were going well on Moma’s side.”

Wipawi, who has been flying high since joining the Asian quartet, had to take a break from the warm-up zone due to a minor injury. “I think I stretched a muscle ligament in my knee,” said Kang. It happened while jumping, but there is no major problem. We just need to rest and treat it.”
