And with Wolosz who is the best setter right now, comes back Poland would look like very good team.

Smarzek and Lipmann seems close players offensively however, Smarzek makes the difference to Lipmann at blocking deparment ..Lipmann should improve her block skill

Smarzek,Boşkoviç and Egonu should be some of the best blocking OPPs in the world

That was painful. It's good to have Argentina tomorrow, it's a chance to get some confidence back (or a danger to lose even more :whistle: )


I can understand Koslowskis reaction and will not comment this fourth set for good reason.

Lippmann knows this, she just told volleyball magazine a week or so ago, that she has to improve her blocking skills.

Goncharova is actually the best blocking OPP right now even moreso than Boskovic. But Smarzek is really good too for a newcomer.

I remember Goncharova got block out-ed a lot last Ech :whistle: she is a good blocker sure but to me personally not 'the best'. Boskovic at least is better for me, Paola as well. I like Smarzek but tbh I have not watched too many Polish matches, the ones I watch and according to the stats she seems also very good indeed.

Technically, no team is guaranteed the ticket to Nanjing yet, but USA, Brazil and Serbia should be fine. They can grab at least 11 wins. The remaining 2 berths will be from Turkey, Netherlands and Italy. Russia probably will end with 9 wins, so they're out. Turkey's opponents are Korea, China, Netherlands and Germany. Korea and Germany should be easy wins. Match against Netherlands will be critical, probably will be the decisive match! I assume China will send their B team to Germany, so they could beat them too. If they can grab 11 wins in the end, they should be fine.
Netherlands' opponents are Serbia, China, Germany and Turkey. They need to try to grab 3 wins, but it's going to be hard. Italy's opponents are Dominican Republic, Belgium, Thailand and Brazil. They need to win all 4 matches, then they'll have a chance to qualify, but their fate is basically in Turkey and Netherlands' hands.
I personally would prefer Turkey and Netherlands. If Italy really wanted to qualify, they shouldn't have sent their B team in the first 2 weeks. :cursing:


USA is guaranteed for sure. China is currently 6th with 20 points but as a host their score is not important as the 6th team also qualifies when China is under the top 5. So 7th is Italy. USA have 31 points and Italy has 18 even if USA loses the upcoming 4 matches and Italy wins the upcoming 4 matches their maximum points Italy could have is 30 so they could not get over USA

Turkey has to handle the last match of the week safe and sound to keep its chance alive..Korea's main difference from Japan and Thailand is its better block.also KYK :D

Not pretty recent, but in WGP 2015 & 2016 she is included in Top 10 Blockers list including MBs (also tournament best scorer for both editions). Well if not the best, definitely among the Top 3.
