It's a pain in the ass for German NT but I kinda agree with her thoughts. I hope she will come back soon.

Wow this is indeed a big shock :white: She was considered to be even bigger prospect than Fürst :aww: Any other prospects in MB position?
I don't think she was considered to become better than Fürst, in fact I don't expect any German MB to even come close to Fürst in the near future.

The next one to be compared to Fürst is Youth NT player Camilla Weitzel (2000) from Dresden's talent team, she's very tall but moves well and has great potential both in block and attack. But then, also Berit Kauffeldt was compared to Fürst when she was a youth player and we all know what has become of her :whistle:
Other than that, Marie Schölzel (1997) from Schwerin is for sure a good talent, but overall MB is currently the weakest position of NT IMO.

My impressions from today's match:

As expected, MB is our weakest position. I'm very curious who will make the cut for WCHQ there. Jennifer Pettke started in both friendly matches and did a decent job, so she should be there for sure. Jule Langgemach didn't play at all, so she should be out for sure. But among the others ?( Kauffeldt had a couple of good blocks today but she can't attack, Schwertmann did basically nothing today, Schölzel also got some good touches in block but can't attack, Wezorke today played very little but apparently did well on Friday. Really hard to tell...

As for setter, Denise Hanke will be starter but 2nd setter is wide open for me. Möllers has more experience, Kemmsies has much more talent. She played two sets today and I really liked her performance. She had some clear inexperience mistakes and bad decisions but also many really good plays, plus I like her leader attitude on court, she communicates very much with the team.

At OPP, Louisa Lippmann is the key and it looks like Koslowski goes with Stigrot as backup. Stigrot didn't convince me today, apparently she was better on Friday though.

OH is another position full of question marks. Brinker and Geerties will start for sure, but then? Poll didn't play at all on Friday and only as reception substitute today, whereas both Großer and Grozer got more time on court. Today I especially liked Dora Grozer, she had some really good kills and also serves well, but she needs to improve her backrow skills. However if she can always perform like today she sure can make the cut.

At libero, Lenka Dürr showed that she is our most important player right now. Always where she needs to be in defense, taking a lot of space in reception and being an emotional leader. Anna Pogany today made her debut in NT and did a good job in defense but for a libero her reception needs to be better.

The players now have a day off and meet again on Tuesday, then after a few more days of training Koslowski will announce the 14 players going to Portugal.

Omg wait Im late but what!?! Wiebke Silge retires from volleybal!! This is really hard for me to understand although I get she wants to focus on studies. She was actually my fave player on German NT lately :white: I hope she decides to come back anyway after finishing studies... Does anyons know/think there was more going on then just her wanting to study? Are there any rumours about something more going on?

14 players for WCHQ:

S: Hanke, Möllers :aww:
OPP: Lippmann, Stigrot
OH: Brinker, Geerties, Poll, Grozer
MB: Kauffeldt, Pettke, Schölzel, Schwertmann
L: Dürr, Pogany

Irina Kemmsies, Tanja Großer, Barbara Wezorke and Jule Langgemach were cut for this tournament but will for sure play in Montreux according to Koslowski. He says for this tournament international experience was a big factor to choose players. Well...Lena Möllers is very experienced at being a mediocre setter, so why risk bringing the younger but more talented Kemmsies? And our MBs are also very experienced at being unable to attack in front of the setter and only a little better behind :whistle:

It will probably be enough to win the pool, but in the long run I want to see some changes.

Berit Kauffeldt is recovering from a surgery on her hand and there is no mention of Saskia Hippe in the press release. The players who were rested after WCHQ return and five new players join the training.

According to this article about Lisa Izquierdo, she still hasn't joined NT due to recovering from her injury. She says she tore all ligaments in her right ankle in January and sat out for 1.5 months, then her Turkish club forced her to return on court for the playoffs even though she still had problems with the foot :white: :down: So the injury got worse again of course...She says she hopes to be able to join NT in August and make it to ECH roster.

German roster for WGP:

S: Denise Hanke, Irina Kemmsies :woohoo:
OPP: Louisa Lippmann, Kimberly Drewniok
OH: Jennifer Geerties, Jana Franziska Poll, Tanja Großer, Lena Stigrot
MB: Jennifer Pettke, Marie Schölzel, Leonie Schwertmann, Barbara Wezorke
L: Lenka Dürr, Anna Pogany

Dora Grozer is out due to physical problems, Maren Fromm (ex-Brinker) is probably on Honeymoon though her husband should be preparing for WCHQ with men NT, Lena Möllers will partially train with the team during WGP and be the first back-up if someone has to be replaced. However it's really good to see Irina Kemmsies in the roster.
With Drewniok being there as back-up OPP I expect Lena Stigrot to play as OH which IMO suits her better at least attackingwise.
