Important tournaments this year:
World Grand Prix
and most of all: European Championship in Germany & Switzerland
The new president of DVV wants the Gold medal, Guidetti's goal at the moment is any medal...
There is no official information about the roster yet, just some mentions in newspaper articles from league teams. Apparently younger/new players will play in Montreux because it is very early after the club season, the main players will start training in June and it looks like they will play both EL and WGP.
The only invited players that are known so far are Rebecca Schäperklaus (MB/Opp, Wiesbaden) and Louisa Lippmann (JNT Opp, Münster) as candidates for Montreux, Regina Burchardt will come in June, Lisa Izquierdo (JNT OH, Dresden) was invited for May but she has school exams in that time so she will also join later. Guidetti will be in Germany next week to talk with DVV about his plans for the summer, after that we will get to know more...
I expect the following players to be there this summer:
Setters: Kathleen Weiss and Denise Hanke should be the main setters, Lena Möllers will surely be invited as well. If Mareen Apitz wants to play I expect the door will be open for her too, and I hope to see JNT setter Magdalena Gryka there too, maybe for Montreux.
Opposites: No doubt Kozuch will be the main Opp, she is the best in Germany on that position. Saskia Hippe remains a mystery, I have no idea what shape she is in but I guess she'll be there too. JNT Opps Carina Aulenbrock and Louisa Lippmann are likely to be invited just for training. Rebecca Schäperklaus can play MB and Opp, but Guidetti wants her as Opp...maybe she can play in Montreux, she is young (20 years) but I don't think she has the potential to become a real power hitter.
Liberos: Lenka Dürr will be the main libero, Lisa Thomsen and Linda Dörendahl will fight for the other spot. Thomsen is better in defense, Dörendahl in reception, so in the end it will depend on what Guidetti prefers. Lisa Rühl from Potsdam is also a good player, I hope she'll be invited at least...
Outside Hitters: Angelina Grün, Maren Brinker, Heike Beier, Anne Matthes, Regina Burchardt will be there for sure. Matthes has been out a long time with shoulder injury so it might be difficult for her to make the ECH team. Burchardt's reception is terrible even in German league so I don't see much chances for her either...apart from those, Lisa Izquierdo as the biggest talent on that position must be there too for sure, and other names we might see are Patricia Grohmann, Svenja Engelhardt, Katharina Schwabe, Jana-Franziska Poll...I guess some of them will be invited, but not all.
Middle Blockers: Corina Ssuschke, Christiane Fürst, Berit Kauffeldt, Nadja Schaus will certainly be there. I hope Anja Brandt gets a chance too, she made good progress in the last two years. Franziska Bremer and Alessandra Jovy-Heusser play very well in Stuttgart so we might see them too. JNT player Leonie Schwertmann also played some very good matches with Münster so she could be another candidate. Kathy Radzuweit said in an interview that she doesn't expect to be invited anymore, it's time now for the younger players.
