Sarah Pavan and her new partner Melissa Humana caused a major upset with a win over the Olympic Champions Ludwig/Walkenhorst in the quaterfinals. Good thing they will not face any brazilians in the semis, they will face the Chech Duo Hermannova/Slukova later today.

Thread for the female World Tour 2017.

What an excellent idea. :)

Well as the Rio tournament has just come to an end I might as well share my thoughts...

For a 4* event it was a bit disappointing effort from the FIVB. The website live scoring was frequently missing/behind and at other times the whole website was down. It's also a shame that they only provide video coverage of the Final-4. Basic video coverage is available from online betting sites, so why not from the FIVB?

And the coverage they did provide. Well I'll use this screenshot as an example, not just a small spelling error of a complicated name, but adding five extra letters and hoping nobody would notice?!



Venue: Well either the venue was a little large, or the crowd was a little small. Either way the atmosphere seemed a little lacking.

But hey, for all the shortcomings and problems this is Beach Volleyball. I thoroughly enjoyed the games and getting used to the new partnerships.

I love this little clip of Slukova, The final point of the match, Delight, then despair, and finally disbelief, all compressed into a few seconds.
Video Clip [41 seconds]

Can't wait for the next tournament. :)
