World Grand Prix 2012

  • Long rally with 3 or 4 digs from each team on big hits. ^^


    Thanks!
    Tomorrow,I believe that Brazil will defenitely lose to USA!
    Their spike from OH and OPP wasn't effective at all.
    I don't know what Ze's is thinking.
    Why he still insists with Fabi and take Brait out.
    Sheilla's performance is still under performance.

  • I dont think Sheilla's under performance. I think Fabiola's sets should improve a lot to say the least.


    Zé Roberto was really stupid in the match against Italy. He decided to test Mari as Opp in the 2nd set and brought Italy back to the gane. With Sheilla on court either we won the sets or lost in the extra points. He should have tried to test Mari as OPP in the end of the 3rd set, after Brazil had scored a good Margin of points.


    I believe Brazils reception is a joke and Fabiola's sets are not Good. Unfortunately we dont have a good setter or Russian attackers. How I miss Fofão!


    I am pretty sure we need Garay and Brait in the team, as well as Adenizia. I also think Tandara should be in the OG roster.


    Unfortunately Mári and Paula are not the same. I think Garay and Tandara desserve a chance. Unfortunately Natália is not at the top of her form either.


    Unless Brazils team improve a lot, USA will beat us in straight sets tomorrow.

  • Not meant to be a complaint, but who do you guys think pools are made?
    So far Italy has played against Brazil twice, Usa, Serbia and Poland. I mean it doesn't seem really fair. I don't think our team cared so much of getting to the Final6 or 8 whatever it is...but I guess they should just elect a certain number of seeds and then move things from there.
    Japan, China have played mostly ridiculous matches so far...

  • Chinese Taipei is playing in defense and serve like during 2006 World Championships.

  • I noticed Wan Ting Chen is back for Taipei, its really good news for them, she was missing during WQT, and is their best scorer so far.


    Chen is a 178cm MB that was both Best Scorer and Best Spiker during WCH for juniors couple of years ago, before players like Palacio and Vasileva.

    Wan Ting Chen her position is OPP :what:
    I never heard she play MB

    Sorry...forget my post, I thought Ting Chen was Shih Ting Chen, but its another player I see now, and she´s still not in the squad.

  • Rondon's performance with Brasil was better then her first match vs Brasil! I think we can win today vs Germany!

    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.



  • Japan is playing quite good even without Sano, Saori, Araki, Yamaguchi and with Takeshita, Inoue & Otomo on bench :thumbsup:
