Dutch serving started to work better in the 2nd set and Dijkema somewhat woke up from her daydream. Go Holland!

Azerbaijan's defense is pathetic lol it's like a bunch of Dioufs running around the court being clueless as to where to go.


you know, it's all pankova's fault.

Rahimova is really an amazing OPP! Those diagonals are so unbelievable! She should be between the top5 in the world right now!

Dutch service has improved a lot in this set. They almost destroyed AZE passing...btw, I think Belien is in top of the worst serves in the vball world, together with Adams and the tall polish MB whose name I dont remember...one with black hair who ALWAYS missed her serves. Cant believe Belien always misses the serve for sooooo long in clutch moments.

I can't believe the speed with which Eahimova is hitting the ball.. We've seen many women's players pound the ball hard, but with such speen, I can't remember

Rahimova is indeed incredible, it's next to impossible to stop her once she starts feeling herself in the air.
Buijs :white: She's been pretty fearless through the whole tournament.

BTW the match is quite boring. Who serves better wins so far. That's all.
Hard to say who can keep passing % higher since both teams are rather weak at it:
Grothues > Knip > Buijs
Ruban > Korotenko > Mammadova

I don't agree.. It's a very good match.. Not too many errors, hard hits, Maret and Samadova digging everything then can.. I enjoy it

It's all up to a single skill: service!

Netherlands is taking the lead just serving on Mammadova.

Gotta say though, Buijs has really stepped up these last few matches after being in a funk for so long. Seems like she's more reliable than Sloetjes right now.

Elizabeta Ruban (Samadova), Valeriya Korotenko (Mammadova). I use their real surnames.

Ruban is Samadova.
Korotenko is the libero, if I am not wrong.
And well,if we want to use real names, Mammadova is Nataliya Skazka.

I dont have anything against AZE, but this match could be called Rest of URSS vs Netherlands :wavy:

I don't agree, Korotenko is a good receiver :whistle: Azeri MBs are horrible, no block no attack :aww: So far Rahimova outplays Sloetjes whereas Buijs is playing better than Buijs. Thus contribution from other spikers will be decisive for this match :whistle:
