Serbia had three players paving the way as Caric topped with 14 points, sparred by Miljana Glusac (11) and captain Jovana Mirosavljevic (10). Thailand had none of the girls in double figures, with Piyarat Buddawong atop of the list with 8 tallies.
After a close first track, Serbia advanced to a 19-14 on the board and rapidly secured the first set 25-16. Thailand found the right formula afterwards, with multiple digs and counterattacks off the tall Serbian block, but precisely the work at the net was what gave the European side a nerve-racking 27-25. It was over then as Serbia came back stronger than ever, with a demolishing 25-6 to bring the day to a close.
