Serbia beats Poland in straight sets at Women's Volleyball Worlds

WARSAW, Oct. 4 (Xinhua) -- Serbia smashed Poland in straight sets 26-24, 25-22, 25-18 on Wednesday to extend its winning streak in the FIVB Volleyball Women's World Championship.

Opposite Tijana Boskovic top-scored for the winners with 14 points, while outside hitter Olivia Rozanski poured in 17 for Poland. Stefano Lavarini's Poland side committed 24 errors, six more than reigning champion Serbia.

The first set turned out to be very tight. Boskovic led her teammates to a six-point advantage 19-13, but Poland responded in the best possible way to level the result. However, the favorites had the last word as middle blocker Agnieszka Korneluk hit the ball into the net, while Rozanski made a net fault, and the visitors took the first set 26-24.

Serbia continued their momentum to control the encounter and took advantage of Poland's problems in defense to win the second set 25-22, before wrapping up its straight-set victory 25-18.

The reigning champions remain unbeaten at the championship. Co-host Poland, who faces Olympic champions the United States on Wednesday, suffered their third defeat in the tournament.

In Pool F's other match, Turkey beat Germany 25-21, 25-18, 25-21. Earlier on Tuesday, the United States recovered from one set down to defeat the Dominican Republic 21-25, 25-19, 25-20, 25-14.

After the first matches of the second round, Serbia stays at the top of Pool F with a perfect record of six victories followed by the United States and Turkey.
