  • It's very hard to pick THE best OH, because no player is always in best shape.


    These 10 are the best in my opinion:


    Mari Steinbrecher, Jacqueline Carvalho, Saori Kimura, Logan Tom, Jordan Larsson, Fransesca Piccinini, Carolina Costagrande, Natasa Osmokrovic, Liouba Sokolova, Yimei Wang.

    I agree with your TOP 10..and there are other great OHs like Godina, Artamonova, Hao Yang, Del Core, Francia, Ruiz, Paula etc....in their best shape they are also TOP players

  • I answer Piccinini just because I'm italian XD

    It's possible, you just have to believe in yourself and really not care what other people say, because I've heard it all.
    If you let someone else dictate what you're going to do in life, then you won't get there.


    Non so neanche come onestamente: in due mesi ero di nuovo in campo.



  • if we only look at the last 2 seasons than Saori Kimura without any doubt, she's been very consistent in both reception and attack plus she has very strong float serve.
    but if we look at the whole career than i would say Sokolova or Picinini


    Anyone can support a team that is winning - it takes no courage. But to
    stand behind a team to defend a team when it is down and really needs
    you, that takes a lot of courage.
