Kaliningrad, Russia, June 19, 2016 - Aleksandar Atanasijevic scored 16 points helping Serbia to overcome Poland 3-0 (20-25, 20-25, 23-25) in their Pool C1 World League clash in Kaliningrad.
Nikola Grbic, coach of Serbia: That was not an easy game as one could think. I'm delighted with the result we showed here in Kaliningrad. It was difficult to keep intensity and concentration for three days in a row, but we did that. I'm glad that we did on court the things that we were doing on trainings and that we were speaking about for a month and a half. That's the most important thing.
Stephane Antiga, coach of Poland: We came here to work. We did not play since the tournament in Japan. Those were our first matches. We did not expect victory, we will continue to work further.
Uros Kovacevic, Serbia: I think that was the easiest game for us on this stage. But one should keep in mind that Poland was not playing with their best roster. We are in a good shape and good mood now. I wouldn't like to talk about my personal performance, you know, volleyball is a team game.
Karol Klos, captain of Poland: Today it was very difficult to play, because Serbia played really well. We could play better but Serbia offence better then we.
