Brazil has two main weaknesses:
ugh i can't stand it anymore, three very important competitions and they lose to the same opponent in similar fashion. Come London 2012, they need to work with a psychologist again to overcome their weaknesses. The presence of Mari could have made a big difference during the match, coz she can rally hit the ball hard against the big Russian block. just how many times did the Russians block Jacqueline? and oh my, during the 4th set, they simply stopped fighting and gave too many points to Russia. 21-10? that's very unusual especially if you are playing against a strong team like Brazil. As expected, Sassa is Ze Roberto's main otion to substitute Jacqueline. I also noticed that Fabiana Claudino's game was so off during the final, she only started scoring during the third set, or was it because Fabiola didn't utilize her a lot? Anyway, congratulations to the Russian team...but I do hope that Brazil will win the 2012 London Olympics, in order to make up for this yet another disappointing loss.
