Saturday’s straight-set win over the Thai team, followed by a similarly thorough defeat by Italy on Sunday, meant China finished the week with a total of two wins (the other over the Netherlands on Wednesday) and two losses (the team lost to Japan on Friday).

Also on Saturday, Brazil beat Italy 3-2 while Japan beat the Dominican Republic 3-1. On Sunday, the Netherlands triumphed 3-0 over France and Brazil thrashed Thailand 3-0.

Brazil won each of its four games in Macao, making it the best performer out of all eight teams pooled to play in the SAR. Italy and Japan each won three games, only losing their face-offs with Brazil. 

All games in Macao’s leg of the Women’s VNL tournament were played at Galaxy Arena. Another set of preliminary rounds simultaneously took place in the US city of Arlington.
