Serbian NT 2018

  • We are not blaming anyone for they attacking performance...we r blaming the lack of usage of them.... Stevanovic only got like 8-6 sets against Turkey.
    If she starts using the middles and it does not work....well that is another thing....



    Rasic`s level dropped....just like the level of every Vakifbank dropped ever since Zhu arrived as Naz only sets Zhu all the time. Remember Sloetjes was having a awful season and then Cansu started and everything changed for her. And Rasic played how many games with Casu?? SO of course they would not have a good connection.


    And we r not saying they should only set the middles either... the OH needs more sets as well.

    We should stop blaming the setters (Ana/Zivkovic) for the attacking performance of Rasic and Veljkovic.. Rasic's attack has been declining since a few years ago, and in Vakof she wasn't that great too.. playing with Naz and Cansu.. It's obvious Veljkovic is in a pretty bad shape since the start of this competition. I think Stevanovic performance is okay, although she has never been as great with the NT as she has been for her club..
    I do agree, Antonijevic and Zivkovic are not doing a good job so far, but they aren't to blame for the performance of the middles

  • Translation


  • Terzic should take Mirkovic as the back setter and not Zivkovic. Because after 2020 of 3 ( Maja, Zivkovic, Anna) will be retiring ....so Serbia will need a setter to take over.


    Maja does not need to play VNL...just let Mirkovic and Danica/Cirocovic play....And the World Cup also will be just a friendly tournament and Maja does not need to play as well... But I think she certainly should play at the OG qualification tournament considering Turkey and Italy are stronger and even Poland will be a dangerous team.


    I`m so happy....because this "Silver" ( Golden) generation of Serbia truly deserves this.... We don`t know what will happen after 2020, but now with Maja back they will be able to fight for Gold in the WCH and OG ( assuming Maja wants to be there).

  • According to this website Maja is back.....

    I wish Ognjenovic would be more honest with fans of Serbia's volleyball. She's been contantly retiring since 2012. I'd think I would enjoy more if she declares that she's not interested in small tournaments like VNL, which is completely understandable because of the length of time she's spent on the national team after all those years. Anyway, great to see her back!
