Ningbo, China, June 11, 2016 - China remain unbeaten in the FIVB World Grand Prix 2016 after sweeping past Germany in straight sets (25-12, 25-22, 25-16) at the Beilun Sport and Art Center in Ningbo on Saturday.

Germany coach Felix Koslowski
- "Congratulations to China. China are a very experienced team. For me it's a great honour to play against China, which is coached by Lang Ping. My whole team watched the game between China and Thailand yesterday. We were impressed. We have a lot of respect for the Chinese team. China played really well in the first set. In the second set we played with a lot of courage, but my team lack experience. It's a great lesson for us how to play volleyball. I hope we can take a step forward tomorrow."

Germany captain Denise Hanke - "They are a very good team. Today's match was a challenge for us. We can learn a lot from this match. China are very strong, very experienced."

China coach Lang Ping - "Germany are a young team, but they caused a lot of problems for us in the second set with solid serves. We reacted slowly in defence for a moment. For us, every game is a good test and a way to find our weakness. We will go back to analyse how we can make continued progress."

China captain Zeng Chunlei - "I feel pleased that we won the match. It is a good test for us. Germany showed great consistency in reception. We need to learn from them. I hope that we will make progress in the future."
