Yekaterinburg, Russia, July 4, 2007 -- China beat the Netherlands 3-1 in the finals of the 2007 Russia President Cup Women's Volleyball Tournament here on Tuesday as expected but the Chinese win is not as easy as people thought while host Russia A defeated Turkey to take the bronze medal.

Before the title match, the Chinese women's team has crushed the Dutah team three times, two in China earlier this year and the other in the tournament's pool competition. China, who only lost three sets in the three matches, has psychological advantage over the Netherlands.

Chinese players mainly relied on their fast attacks to break the Dutch blocking while the Dutch players responded with powerful spikings. Both sides fought evenly with the scores levelling several times until 12 all, when the chinese jumped to lead 14-12, 16-13 and 20-16. The
Netherlands rallied to tie at 20 all again, but China clinched points by Yang Hao's attacking and took the set 25-21. In the second set, the Netherlands fought back from behind to make it one all at 25-22.

After taking the third set 25-18, the Chinese seemed to be over-optimistic, falling behind from the start of the fourth set. The gap once increased to five points at 11-6. After the second technical timeout, the Chinese recovered their form. The two teams fought for each point from 22-22, 23-23 until 35-35. The Chinese saved eight match points and at last clinched the set at 37-35 due to a fast attack by
China's Liu Yanan and the attacking error by their opponents.

Russia A team won its battle against Turkey 3-1 (19-25, 25-23, 25-23, 25-20) and took to the third rank. Turkey  presented a fresh and fast performance, winning the first set with ease. However, with the support from the partisan spectators, the Russian players kept Turkey under pressure from the second set. But the outcome of the match remained unsure until the end. The Russian A team won the next three sets with small margins 25-23, 25-23 and 25-20.

The final rankings are as follows: 1.
China, 2. the Netherlands, 3. Russia A, 4. Turkey,  5. Japan, 6. Azerbaijan, 7. Belorussia, 8. Russia B.
