Caguas, Puerto Rico, September 13, 2015 - It took some good amount of positive energy for Chinese Taipei to claw their way back after losing the first set against Egypt, and that’s something captain Lee Yu underlined as important to shake off the tension of the start.
Lee Yu, Chinese Taipei captain: “In the beginning we were a little tense and nervous, but gradually we picked up the pace to turn back the situation in our favour. This is a good boost for the next round, to extend our winning spirit and carry it on to the next games.”
Kuang Chin-Tu, Chinese Taipei coach: “The first set we were not really into the game, but we changed some players and that allowed us to get the win. I tried to give the team more defensive strength with the substitutions and also to speed up our rallies.”
Ahmed Fathi, Egypt coach: “Chinese Taipei played with a very high level; they executed the traditional defensive game of the Asian teams. My team could not work out according to our game plan and that is reflected on the final outcome.”
