national team, which continued to fight until the middle of the first set, gave up the initiative due to the overwhelming offensive power of Serbia's top striker Boskovic.

In the beginning of the third set, Kim Yeon-kyung took the lead for a while as she took charge of the attack, but gave Boskovic three consecutive serve goals and lost the power of chasing.
