Lausanne, Switzerland, July 18, 2017 - China meet Japan Friday in Hong
Kong in as classic an Asian derby as it gets. The reigning Olympic
champions have won their last five encounters with Japan, following a
straight-set defeat in Tokyo for the 2014 FIVB World Grand Prix. The two
sides last met at world level in the 2015 FIVB World Cup with China
prevailing in four sets.
