Germany Stunned Iran in Five Sets
Here’s the reaction after the game, from the virtual Mixed Zone:
Jan Zimmermann (Germany): “It was a tough battle. In the first set we struggled a bit, but we found our rhythm in the end. It was a hard battle, they were pushing us in the fourth and last set again. And we had to stay a little bit calm at these moments. And pushed back against them, but we are happy that we won this important match and points for us. We had two difficult games this week, yesterday we played really bad against USA – two sets were really bad, so it was important for us to come back today and take some points. It was nice to have some atmosphere and some loudness here. Sometimes it’s difficult to stay in the game when you don’t hear anybody, so it was a nice change. Marouf is a really good setter and it’s great to play against players like him, so I was happy that I could play against setters like him. I want to get there, that’s why I’m here.”
