German players pose for the camera after grabbing their second win of the tournament. The pupils of Jens Tietböhl have played two tiebreakers in a row, and both have finished in their favor.

Santa Fe, Argentina, August 21, 2017 - German head coach Jens Tietböhl stated that despite some peaks and valleys during their match against Slovenia, calm was very important.

German girls have played two tiebreakers in a row, and both have finished in their favor. 

Jens Tietböhl, Head Coach of Germany: “It was an up and down match, but our fifth set was very important, we played calm and very good. In the end, our service was better and we really wanted to win, we fought hard and the energy was really good. Tomorrow we want to do a good game, we want to play our best to be in the best place in the group that we can be.”

Luisa Keller, Player of Germany: “It was a very difficult match because Slovenia has a really good service so we had to play very well, that was the key to win this match and get that last set. We're very happy. Our next step is the game against Korea, we don't want to think about the next round, only in Korea.”

Brina Bracko Player of Slovenia: "We did our best but it wasn't enough. Germany had a day off, they were more relaxed, but that's not an excuse. Our concentration was a bit bad today. No matter who's our rival now, we will have to do our best because all the teams in the World Championship are very good."

Casar Joze, Head Coach of Slovenia: "From the beginning, our energies were not there. We were tired, it was the fourth game in a row for us and we didn't have the extra moment that we had yesterday. We fought all the time, but Germany was better today. We want to reach the quarterfinals so now we have to wait to see who we will face. Hopefully, we can do our best performance in the eight finals."
