Well at least the 4th set was interesting.

Bronze is a good finish for the German girls and in the end the only matches they lost in the tournament both were against Korea. I'd have liked to see them playing against Poland, especially because they'll meet in ECH...

Does anyone know the roster for the USANT for the last week of the Grand Prix?
It's probably the same as last week, I don't think they even changed any player during the preliminary phase


EDIT: There will be one change, Annie Drews is in China with the team instead Mcmahon. It is the only change seems like.

Korean team changed drastically when they changed their setter and one of the OHs with Park. Their coach was too late indeed to make these substitutions. Their starting setter had terrible decision making, I think she used KYK so rarely as if she had Mihajlovic and Goncharova in her team. Park did a great job especially in attacking since the other OHs were constantly getting blocked.
Park actually started the match but was served off the court by Germany. After her return she was like a completely different player though.

One thing I noticed about Korea, they never use KYK from the backrow. They hardly use backrow attacks anyway and when they do it's their OPP who hits them.
Omg! She was so different that I was wondering why Korean coach used 2 useless OHs until he took her back in 3rd set :)

Well you're not wrong :D He tried two other useless OHs to replace Park before bringing her back in ;)

Ah! I thought I was drunk watching :D

Btw, I was also surprised of why Korea didnt use KYK from backrow at all. I won't be surprised if she has an injury actually since she also didnt use her very effective jump serves in entire match and had jump floats instead.

Poland does the same as Germany yesterday, pushing serve and getting enough breaks when KYK is in backrow. Let's see how long it will work for them.

I can imagine it too. KYK has been waaaay too quiet for her standards so far.

Both teams are playing really bad. This level of playiing doesn't belong to group 1 at all. They should stay in group 2 or whatever it will be called next year.

I also agree that Kim must have an injury or a problem, i don't see any other reason for this poor performance.
