Macau, Macau, July 16, 2017 - China won an exciting encounter against USA 3-2 (25-27, 25-23, 25-21, 23-25, 15-11) improving in the attack and defense.
China coach An Jiajie: I am very happy with today’s victory against a very strong USA team. This weekend Zhu Ting has done a great job recovering after every match, and this is extremely critical for us as we prepared to combat the fast-paced and highly-intense playing style of the USA team. Overall I think we improved a lot in our attack and defense and our spikers and middle-blocker did a tremendous job. However, we still need to work on our reception as shown by our performance throughout the weekend.
China captain Zhu Ting: We attacked well today and our blocking has significantly improved compared to last week’s match in Kunshan. I think this is a good all-round performance from our team.
