sorry, her fans! but since WWC 2010 in Japan I don't see Maret Grothues that good. in RCC this season, she was so so (and it's being so much kindness with her).
her attack and block is weaker than what Plak, Buijs, Flier or Pietersen can do. ok, she was and is recovering from a serious injury, but...
i think Guidetti will give chances to Flier play as starting. she deserves it, she played very solid and good matches in Chinese League. she can improve her jump on attack to be better attacker than she is being now. she needs a especific work on this. let's see! I really like this team.
Grothues is on court, especially for her reception. Hopefully she will keep improving after her serious injury. The same for Sloetjes.
About Flier: she had some weaker performances last summer, but she has so much experience...I would prefer her above Sloetjes and Pietersen. I;m glad to read your report about Chinese League
P.S. The strongest force will be on the bench..I'm so happy Guidetti is our coach....(I don't want to think about the idiot Vermeulen anymore).
