Poland overwhelmed Serbia at the 2021 FIVB Men's Volleyball Nations League in four sets - not least thanks to an amazing record-breaking serving performance by Wilfrdo Leon.
Here's the reaction after the game, from the virtual Mixed Zone:
Marko Podrascanin (Serbia): "When I look at the result it looks bad for my team, because we are not even getting one point. But I think that we played really good, only difference - in my opinion - was Leon's service. We know he is the best player in the world - I played with him for two years. Today he made a difference, especially from the service line. Every set we lost the difference in points was the number of his aces. The key to Poland's win was Leon's service. Otherwise we played a really good match."
Kamil Semeniuk (Poland): "That was my first official match game with the National Team. I'm very proud to be here and to be a part of this team. We are really happy because we won this game. Obviously, we can still do some things better, but in the next days we will work to improve it during training sessions. So, we hope to be even better in the next games of the VNL."
