* In the match Japan vs. United States, United States captain Bob Samuelson might have been ejected at the end of set 4 for arguing with officials. That meant an extra point to Japan with the score 14–13. The referees did not notice that and the game continued. United States won the match 3–2 (15–8, 11–15, 10–15, 17–16, 16–14) and Japanese coach launched a protest on 27 July. As a result, set 5 was controversially annulled and the score of set 4 was awarded 15–13 to Japan, thus giving the win to them
