Ekaterina Khomiakova: The French beach volleyball team made more mistakes

French volleyball players Laura Longuet and Melinda Adelin made more mistakes in their match and that reason, Ekaterina Khomiakova told a “P-Sport” correspondent, lost them the match.

According to “P-Sport”, Khomiakova and Evgeniya Ukolova defeated the French team by a score of 2-0 (21:13, 21:15) and advanced to the playoff.

“Today is much better in comparison with yesterday. We got some sleep, and we are starting to return to form after the flight. I hope that every day we will play better and better. The weather today wasn't too hot, unlike yesterday, and we just felt better. That explains the result. We made less mistakes then they did”, said Khomiakova. According to her, it was important for her team to “never underestimate your opponent at the Universiade”.  “The teams here are really good, and that's why we can't let down. We have to show them everything that we've got and get what we came here for – a medal.” The Russian team's next opponent in the next round won't be decided until later.
