Serbia is so dramatic

1st set BRA goes from 19-23 to 26-24. amanda's serves really killed SRB. ze almost had a heart attack on set point when ade didn't jump and kill that overpass.

i don't get what they see in malagurski. she's so useless. mihailovic hits hard though. how did SRB lose gold in rio?
Malagurski useless? She was TOP 5 score in Turkey and Italy past 2 seasons.

Plus she played well and helped Serbia beat Brazil last week.
Bjelica is the one that did not play well against Brazil this week.

Terzic could have replaced Bjelica with Malagurski for the 2nd set and on, but I guess he is just trying to figure out who will be the official backup Bjelica or Malagurski.,

Bjelica can kill some tough shots, but sometimes she`s just so stupid and keeps hitting into the block just like she did in this game.

Busa screwed everything up by getting aced 2x by Amanda in the first set.


I used to support Malagurski, but I have to be realistic, and she is so far from her level in 2011.
Same case with Bjelica. Both in 2011 seemed to be reliable in attack and now, dont show consistency.
Malagurski can be the scorer of the team, but makes many mistakes and is frequently blocked. She is strong but with high error range.
Bjelica sometimes disappears and that is forbidden to an opposite in Serbia :teach:

Busa does not deserve NT for now. Poor level

So Miyashita is the 3rd option of Nakada among the 3 setters...

Seems Miyashita is in the doghouse. But who knows. Maybe they are saving her for ...

That Serbian middle attack was fun to watch but they take the game too seriously for me. And that gum chewing guy

Europeans do not smile very often on the court. And this game was a must win for them after the the 3-0 loss for Brazil.

I was not sure about what to expect from this new Japanese team, but I think they are doing pretty good so far. Nakada will be good for them.

If Sylla could keep playing like she did in the first set, Italy would take this in 3-0.

Both hitting errs one from L Boseti and one from C Boseti gives the second set to the USA. With both of them on the court Italy will loose this in 3-1.

Egonu is just amazing. Look at her stats. For now She has 22/34 in attack. JUST WOW.
She will become World Best Spiker very soon. Maybe She is already.

She probably is...or at least tied with Zhu and Boskovic at the moment.

For now this young girls are playing very good against Germany. I know they will stop playing like this because they just can't play good for long time...
Germany is not looking good at all...

Great fight between USA and Italy and Thailand took first set against Brasil.

About Croatia I've noticed some sets they play quite good and even win set, however next set they lose 25-11 or something. Probably bcs they're really young, this tournament will be good for them
