Turkey NT 2014

It's a pity that Turkey has these problems, because potentially it could achieve better results. They were the team that gave most headaches to Brazil this year and it cannot be said it was by chance, since it happened twice. I saw them in Trieste and it was really frustrating how they threw the match against Brazil after leading 2-0.

Olympic Games - Brazil 2016 (qualification process)

The format is really tricky and could lead to weak teams participating in Olympic Games. Let's see what can happen: Brazil (1) is already qualified, so Argentina (2) may take the spot for South America China (3) and USA (4) may win the two World Cup spots, this means two more places for Asia and North America, which could go to Japan (5) and Dominican Republic (6). A spot for Africa (7) and one for Europe (8.). Let's say Tunisia and Russia, just to make an example. Just four places left - three ...

2014 FIVB World Championship - Italy - 9/23

I'm so sorry that Italy didn't won a medal at home. On a positive note, another great day for Italy concerning serve: 7 aces today.

2014 FIVB World Championship - Italy - 9/23

Quoted from "pappi" there is no undefeated team in this tournament so far, after brasil lost the semi. besides, i just found one interesting match records between these four(4) teams: USA/China, now facing the title match, both were defeated twice by Italy/Brasil respectively in the second/third stage, but both won back in the kick-off match against Brasil and Italy, by the same score of 3-0 and 3-1 in the second stage when they were defeated for the first time. Remark: DO NOT meet your rivals ...

2014 FIVB World Championship - Italy - 9/23

Quoted from "pappi" Quoted from "Diesse14" Quoted from "samba player" This competition was too long and tiring. The two teams that played better in the three rounds declined in the fourth round. If the formula was like the last two editions the semifinals would have been Italy vs USA and Brazil vs China without the third round. Just like the beggining of the third round this time. I don't want to say that Italy and Brazil would have won 100%, but still the third round was not necessary. I agree...

2014 FIVB World Championship - Italy - 9/23

I give you the numbers of Italian aces, because are impressive and resemble Cuba in her old days. Only, Cuban aces were much more spectacular, for they jump served. 6 against Croatia 10 against Germany 9 against Dominican Republic 9 against Azerbaijan 5 against Belgium 6 against Japan 8 against China (first match) 8 against Russia 10 against China (second match)

2015 World Cup - Japan - 8/22

Quoted from "pappi" Quoted from "samba player" Quoted from "brahmin" China finished 2nd, but Thailand who finished 3rd and South Korea who finished 4th were the teams in the World Cup as the Asian representatives. I am guessing that FIVB said their world ranking and hosting the Olympics said that they did not need to participate. If I remember correctly China decided not to participate, since it was already qualified as the Olympic host. you are right, China quit, but by taking FIVB's direction...

2014 FIVB World Championship - Italy - 9/23

Also today Italy totalised ten aces. Very impressive, considering Italy was in the last years one of the weakest serving team among top teams (except Bosetti Lucia, Barazza and Aguero). Bonitta did a great job, because every player is serving very well now. In fact serve was one of the key factors for Italians in this championship. In almost every match they scored from 5 to 10 aces.

2014 FIVB World Championship - Italy - 9/23

Quoted from "Canter" interesting things are happening indeed.. Italy beat Usa 3-0....Brazil beat China 3-0... Dominic was leading 2-0 against China.. the teams on relatively good days won, pre-fav. teams lost..... btw... these matches have shown that how an important player a setter is for her team.....: Wei and Glass.... when a setter plays good then that makes a big difference....Glass played with relatively good passes whereas Wei played very well despite good serves of Italians....complimen...

2014 FIVB World Championship - Italy - 9/23

Quoted from "flyingdutchman" I'm very very sorry for la squadra...this tournament is the last performance of a great generation: Leo, Picci, Costagrande, Del Core, Cardulo, Arrighetti... Very sorry because they also didn't win an Olympic medal. I hope they'll fight for the bronze tomorrow. However, it was a very good twelve seasons for them. Thank you girls for the many great matches you gave us.

Congratulations to China! I hope that tommorrow they will win the Championship! I'm so sorry for our girls. The quarterfinals and semifinals are always a problem for Italy (2004, 2008, 2012 Olympics; 2006 World Championship).

2014 FIVB World Championship - Italy - 9/23

For the first time after many years Italy has a very effective serve. But they lack a lot in blocking. If they will (not) block like they did with China they'll surely have problems with Russia and USA. Arrighetti is not a good blocker as were Barazza and Anza in their good days. Very sorry there is no Korea in this WCH. I have a feeling they could have been in top six. Nevermind!!

I doubt someone will stop Brazil from winning this time.
