Women's World Grand Prix 2017

  • Well at least the 4th set was interesting.


    Bronze is a good finish for the German girls and in the end the only matches they lost in the tournament both were against Korea. I'd have liked to see them playing against Poland, especially because they'll meet in ECH...

  • I was only watching the game because of those two coaches. :rose:

    Favorite players: M: Maxim Mikhaylov, Murilo, Serginho, Aaron Russell, Otavio, Simone Giannelli, Ivan Zaytsev, Tsvetan Sokolov, Michał Kubiak, Mariusz Wlazly, Pawel Zagummy W: Sheilla, Zhu Ting, Natalia, Fe Garay, Fofao, Gabi, Thaisa, Foluke Akinradewo, Wei Qiuyue, Ding Xia, Carli Lloyd, Fabi, Natalia Goncharova, Yuko Sano, Saoris Kimura and Sakoda

  • It's probably the same as last week, I don't think they even changed any player during the preliminary phase


    EDIT: There will be one change, Annie Drews is in China with the team instead Mcmahon. It is the only change seems like.

  • Park actually started the match but was served off the court by Germany. After her return she was like a completely different player though.


    One thing I noticed about Korea, they never use KYK from the backrow. They hardly use backrow attacks anyway and when they do it's their OPP who hits them.

    Omg! She was so different that I was wondering why Korean coach used 2 useless OHs until he took her back in 3rd set :)

  • I was questioning myself how come there are so many polish supporters in Ostrava and it's almost in Poland :lol:

  • Well you're not wrong :D He tried two other useless OHs to replace Park before bringing her back in ;)

    Ah! I thought I was drunk watching :D


    Btw, I was also surprised of why Korea didnt use KYK from backrow at all. I won't be surprised if she has an injury actually since she also didnt use her very effective jump serves in entire match and had jump floats instead.

  • So does Smarzek... It's an interesting match so far, Korea can't stop Kakolewska.

  • Finally no.14 from Korea doesnt get the point :whistle:

  • I feel like Korea might pull of the same thing they did yesterday :lol:

  • Poland gets the second as well. Now we will see if Korea can respond... :set:

  • Both teams are playing really bad. This level of playiing doesn't belong to group 1 at all. They should stay in group 2 or whatever it will be called next year.


    I also agree that Kim must have an injury or a problem, i don't see any other reason for this poor performance.
