Holland have been lucky with the draw. IMO they are not at the level of the best teams without Lonneke and that is why they have been so poor this week

AND They are both playing for the same team in Turkey next season....
Which is very nice for them and I hope they are happy together. But maybe not the best career move. Carol in particular is way better than Nilufer

Brazil was lucky with that second point. Seems like Adenizia touch the net before the block kill fell on Netherlands' side.

agree with you..Netherlands has a limited pool of players..i remember Lonneke from Challenge cup match with a German team against Bursa and she wasnt that effective/impresssive then after Guidetti took the dutch NT she shined and then days in Vakıfbank etc

That's an interesting situation. Net touch with the hair doesn't count as net touch, but ball touch with the hair does count as ball touch?

Last time I saw that hair touch happen was way back during London Olympics Russia-Brazil quarterfinals on Goncharova. :wavy:

When the ball hit the player's long hair on the way out, like the case with ball from BRA hit Plak's hair, is it counted IN or OUT for BRA side? :D

Another case, when there are two faults happen at the same time from both sides, for instance, the ball from NED hit the antenna while BRA in blocking attempt touches the net, both faults happen at the same time (to the naked eyes)... whose fault it is counted, point to whom?

If two mistakes happen at the same time, the referee has to decide double fault and the rally is repeated.

Anne played in Brazil`s Rexona

AND They are both playing for the same team in Turkey next season.... :drink:
Anne played in Brazil`s Rexona ( same team as Carol) this past season. They started dating, but the funny thing is that their level dropped ever since.
Anne was...either lovestruck or she forgot to play volleyball when she saw Carol. :wavy:

What is this about. Who is Anne ? Is there a romance going on here?

I was wondering how they would have started such a long distance relationship.




The Brazilian powerhouse Carol (Ana Carolina da Silva) and Anne Buijs have already decided their future for next season. They left the Rexona and signed with the Nilufer of Turkey for season 2017/2018.

The Brazilian center is 26 years and 1.83 high and has defended Mackenzie, Pinheiros and Rexona. The Buijs 25-year-old and 1.91-meter tip has passes through Schweriner SC (ALE), Busto Arsizio (ITA), Lokomotiv Baku (AZE) and Vakifbank (TUR).

You guys are speaking like Brazil is already qualified! As much as I wish it were true, there is still quite a bit of drama to unravel in the last round on Sunday.

Can anyone here confirm how will be played the Final Round?

Cause in when you go in FIVB's site schedule says its going to be two groups of 3, but when you go to formula it says it will be a Round-Robin system...

I guess you're right. If Brazil loses to USA, and DOM beats ITL and TUR or JPN beats SER and RUS things would crumble for BRA.

If BRA loses to USA and DOM or JPN take one of two, well ... then ... it's a bunch of math I can't figure out :rolll:

Thanks for the heads up!

It's probably robin round and they just took the same template from last year and haven't fixed it yet :win:
