Felix Koslowski, coach of Germany
– Of course, I’m very happy. It was a good performance from my team. My team give me a lot of opportunity to bring some young players again on the court and give them some playing time. They managed to keep the level high, so I’m happy. The final round will be totally different. Every match is a final match. Of course, we go there with confidence for sure. The team is performing good and I hope we can bring a good performance in the final four.

Lena Stigrot, spiker for Germany
– I think we played really well. We controlled the game the whole time. They came close at the end of the third set and Peru played really well, but I think we controlled the match. I think we’re getting better and better. It was really fun to play here and there was an amazing crowd. And Canadian people are the most kind people I have ever met.

Luizomar De Moura, coach of Peru
– Our team enjoyed the game as this was our first time in Group 2 of the Grand Prix. I think we lost a few precious opportunities throughout this weekend. There were lots of close sets. I think we could have done better. But it was important and great for us to be a part of this group competition. We're going to take this experience for future use.

Carla Rueda Cotito, opposite for Germany – Playing such a strong team like Germany, I'm happy that we didn't surrender our fighting spirit. It's a tough game, but it allows us to work on our skills and grow more as a team. We'll learn from our mistakes and will always continue to play with effort and joy.
