Wiesbaden deserved the win! Very good serving (Kosova) and defense (Stock).
Oude Luttikhuis in 5th set 4 reception-errors in a row.. She is the key-person for Aachen, also in play-offs. If she plays decent, Aachen (with Bongaerts, hopefully) can beat Wiesbaden. If Wiesbaden succeeds in picking her in reception, Aachen will probably lose. Aachen's biggest weapon, also today, was their block. I think, together with Stuttgart, they are the best blocking team in the Bundesliga.
No good match and a very disappointing performance by the Ladies in Black (except set 1). Wiesbaden really deserved the success.
Lindsay Dowd in no way responsible for the defeat.
Again a very very black day for Nicole Oude Luttikhuis. Is it really helpful for such a young player to stay on court even on such a day?
IMHO Mrs. van Hintum is the only person fully responsible for the defeat. She replaced Oude Luttikhuis two times but by far too late. If she does not trust in the skills of Karolina Pisla, why doesn't she try one of the Opposites to play Outside/Reception. I do not have the impression, that Frauke Neuhaus and Jelena Sunjic are totally unable to receive.
Last question: Why should Wiesbaden not continue in picking at Nicole Oude Luttikhuis in reception?
They would have to be stupid ...
