USA captain Courtney Thompson speaks after defeating Belgium.

Ankara, Turkey, July 05, 2015. Reigning world champion USA finished the 2015 FIVB World Grand Prix Pool C games with three consecutive victories after a 3-0 win over Belgium

USA coach Karch Kiraly - "We are learning some things. We do some things very well. Our service pressure was good today. Other parts of our game needs to improve. But this is certainly a better start for us than it was last year in the same hall. And playing a new team (Belgium) is always exciting. We are excited about next week."

USA captain Courtney Thompson - "This was a good week for us. We got better during the week. It is always nice to win three games in a row. We got a lot of work to do. We are excited about turning back tomorrow and improving."

Belgium coach Gert Vande Broek - "We have to respect that there is a difference between USA and Belgium. I can be satisfied how we played. We could have done more in the second set. There was an opportunity but we could not be able to win the set. I can live with this result."

Belgium captain Charlotte Leys - "It was a good experience for us. We were good in the second set. But the rest of the game was not what we wanted. We will do our best in next two weeks."
