I would like to see Zhang Changning play as well. Just because.

This is my first Post-Olympics Grand Prix. Lots of fun and drama. Girls retiring, sitting one out, getting cut. Youngsters breaking in. I can't wait.

I'd also like to see more Li Yingying. That 2015 match needed more cameras. Since she's been cut from the GP roster do you think she'll play in the U20s?

Too bad Zhang Changning is out because I would like to see how well she can play being the ace for China. Zhu Ting will probably not play much due to the long season and altitude sickness recently. I also hope to see Li Yingying play in Macau or HK because haven't seen her played for any Chinese team since 2015 Girls World Championship.


Zhang Changning sent one message through her fans weibo, that she confirms her absence from Kunshan leg but the reason seems not her health condition.
She mentioned the precise reason shall be high confidential due to the China NT internal discipline, which abviously caused more curious conjecture though....

Zhang's father got a heart attack several months ago and he was hosptialized. Not sure if her absence could be related to her fathers illness.

It looks like Macris and Fernanda Tomé were cut from Brazilian NT roster for the 1st week.
So this is the full team:

S: Roberta/Naiane
OPPs: Tandara/Monique/Edinara
OHs: Natália/Rosamaria/Amanda/Drussyla
MBs: Carol/Bia/Adenízia/Mara
L: Suelen/Gabi

I think Monique or Edinara will be out of the court as 15 players have traveled to Turkey.

It seems like Serbia has the best line-up of middle blockers as for now.

I wonder where is Gabi and Juicely? Why are they not playing?

I doubt it. I do not think they have even trained with the NT since the club season ended.

They might come back to the World Grand Champions Cup at the end of the year, but it's not certain yet.

The weird part is that Li Yingying has been left out of all junior teams since 2015 Girls World Championship. There is a conspiracy theory going on that she will be a secret weapon for China but I doubt it. Since she is part of the WGP wide roster, I am hoping she might get to play other legs or finals but very unlikely because she has not trained with the national team at all. Li Yingying's situation has been a total mystery as far as I know. Hope someone like Tomen can give us more info. Thanks in advance.
