If you mean solely in this competition, it's too early to tell. Coincidentally, those 2 teams hold the first two places after the 6 matches.

However, it's extremelly doubtfull whether even more increased speed of setting will be of any advantage. It's probably just the case of Karch further buckling down and entrench his personal philosophy (perhaps in the face of increasing criticism?).

Do you think their games' being less predictable due to the balls' being distributed more balancedly and fast amongst their players makes the teams like the Usa more advantageous in comparion with the teams like Serbia in which the balls more go to certain players ?

You know where I come from ... that is the big question. If you aren't tall enough to have the option of hitting over the block you have to hit around it, right? In terms of the "dance" of volleyball, hitting around the block is more danceful and attractive to watch. MB attacks are the best. Big guns hitting high sets time after time after time just isn't pretty. Maybe advantageous, though.

Then there is defense. If you pack your team with redwoods you run the risk of losing on defense. USA seems to strike a pretty good balance. They need a libero, however.

USA scares me as an opponent more than Serbia, by a lot.

Well, when you set the parameters:

1)Must be a leftie

2)Must not be named Destinee Hooker

3)Must not be named Nicole Fawcett

she's probably the best that is left in the (much reduced) pool. ;)

absolutely they will need a good libero...where is their best possible libero ?..a good libero plus working OPPs
i share your opinion..a running Usa seems more dangerous than Serbia from which you know what to expect (of course Serbia is also a very strong team, the best team in europe currently )

of course Serbia is also a very strong team

Yes! Not to take anything away from Serbia. I also really like their MB, can't remember of her name, something-vic I think. Serbian names have too many syllables and weird double-consonants to stick in my head easily.

Murphy is okay, but she is not the game changer. usually the OPP will be the main scorer since they are out of reception. and when the receiving goes awry, you need OPP to kill the ball. USA had that with Hooker (up until the 2012 Olympics -- crazy how Brazil downgraded her to 14 points). I don't see that with Murphy. the thing is USA tried to play this super fast game with short sets to the outside but when things get chaotic they seem to lose direction. USA need another Logan Tom who can kill the ball out of system. they have great middles. but wing spikers and libero is an issue for them.

on a side note, Thailand is just like Brazil in a way -- everyone on court come to play. the balls are distributed fairly. and Nootsara is one of the last creative setters of this generation, I think. Pornpun is slowly catching up. cannot wait to watch Thailand VS Japan.

Guys, please relax and have fun. Let's try to keep the forum peaceful.

Lloyd, please next time you want to joke, pick better words than "porno girls", which can be misunderstood.

About the others: the very same moment he said it was a joke, even though it was a bad one, you can move on.

Thank you.

Your every​ comment is about Nootsara. :hit:
Thailand​ are decent​ team but I cant see them making any surprise this year. They have the worst reception.

i think it is fair to give credit where it is due. nootsara is definitely not one of those boring setters that play safe volleyball. and i am not saying Thailand is going to be one of the top 3 teams either, i am just saying that Thailand with this new generation of players are exciting to watch.

Carol is no better than adenizia

congrats to Italy..i didnt expect them to win 3-0 over K Sorea..this means they are improving

also Dutch team is close to getting a 3-0 win over Japan..and they beat Japan in 3 sets

id like to see Carol on the court instead of Adeniza
