We feel ok for today, but want to improve - Thailand coach Dokmai


Thailand coach Chamnan Dokmai: "We need to improve".

Ljubljana, Slovenia, September 11, 2017 - Thailand registered tournament-highs in serving in their six-set win over Argentina, but the technical staff feel they still need to improve. Here's the post-game reaction from the two sides:

Thailand coach, Chamnan Dokmai: "We are not familiar with the [new scoring] system which is very fast-paced. And due to the changes in serving, players always worry about steping on the line so that affected our serves. That is why our serves weren't good today. We feel okay with this match but we want to improve ourselves and hopefully the next match will be better."

Thailand captain, Boonlert Tichaya: "Today we played quite well and we're happy with the result. We had to adapt to the new 15-point system and we tried not to make any mistakes. At the end we succeded and we are very happy about today. Tomorrow we will face other opponents and it will be tough."

Argentina coach, Martin Lopez: "I think in some moments we played very well in attack. Thailand were always one step ahead, especially in reception. We knew throughout the game who we we were playing against and I still believe we did well as a team. At the moment the defeat costs us a lot but we have to admit Thailand played better."

Argentina captain Antonela Fortuna: "We knew that it was an important match but in the end we performed poorly at receiving."

All matches in Ljubljana are played under a new scoring system currently being tested: a best-of-seven, 15-point set format.
