Pedro Solberg and Bruno Schmidt split.
According to Pedro Solberg, Bruno is going to play with Alison next season. Anyway, they will probably play Durban Open together. However tough, there's still a chance to win the season.
That only can be said about the Brazilian Tour. Who takes a decision about national team pairs is the head coach.
Pedro said they won't probably play together for the national team because of this.

A decision based on what? Finding Alison a better partner? Pedro and Bruno are probably going to win the 2013 World Tour (if it is a different award compared to the overall season winner) and have been the most consistent Brazilian pair on the Tour this summer. I see the decision only in favour of Alison and no one else. Btw, do we know if Emanuel is going to play next season as well?


There are two interviews, one with Bruno (globo.com) and the other with Pedro (Lancenet!).
I guess there are some things kept dark and will be hard to find it out. I'll only try to clear up what they said.
Both said it was Bruno's decision. Pedro decided to take a break now and Bruno decided on splitting.
Bruno denied he is going to play with Alison. He said he will plan for 2014 with his coach yet. On the other hand, Pedro said Bruno will play with Alison because both live in Vitória and will be better for them. Pedro added he is planning on to decide his new partner next week.

FiVB shifted a lot of power to the federations, when it comes to starting places for the world tour and championships. It seems that the brazil federation is taking full advantage of this and has no problems to decide over the heads of the players.

The german federation is acting a little bid different. Players have more to say, when it comes to choosing partners, coaches and sponsors. In the end, the team displays and results will decide about who is playing world tour. On one hand that seems to be a more fair approach, on the other hand german players have to act very self-initiated to create a good environment for themselves.
We will se in future, which is the better approach towards success and medals on championships.


That's exactly what is happening in Brazil. Coaches decide while players must agree. Letícia Pessoa, head coach of the men teams, seems to talk a little more with the players. Anyway, she will decide if they still play together next World Tour or not. She said she will keep the Brazilian project.
