Serbian NT 2018

  • Terzic should take Mirkovic instead of Zinkovic... she will certainly retire from the NT with Maja after Tokyo...and then what`s Serbia gonna do?? Mirkovic should be there to gain experience that would actually be very helpful starting in 2021....Oh well....


    I don`t feel bad for Antonijevic....her performance showed how great you get by playing in such lower level leagues... Better for her to focus only playing club anyways.

  • Malagurski must be sick of this every year, not that she deserves to be picked on current form, but how much longer will she continue to spend the summer with the NT before inevitably not being picked for major tournaments?


    We know what this team can do, if the players are fit they can beat any team in the world. Hopefully they do themselves proud and come back with a medal, with a little luck it could be a gold one.

  • i believe i remember Ana didn’t want to be the second setter after Maja and now that Maja returned, reason would be she didn’t want to be the second one.

    Jeez, what's her problem? I mean, she even was Zivkovic's sub a few times, why not Maja? Does she hate her that much?

  • I don't think ana showed anything special this summer. She was definitely good in the past but after so many serious injuries and playing in low level leagues she is not the players once she was. I'm curious if Maja will be with the team till Tokyo? I can imagine she will skip 2019 Ech and mirkovic can play there with zivkovic then. Let's see if malesevic can deliver as much as blagojevic. She wasn't impressive in Turkey

    with Maja in the team, it’s not likely for her to get playing time while with Zinkovic, she will get her playing time if she performs well. And also it’s not that hard to replace Zinkovic since she plays so boring and all she knows is setting to Branicka and Boskovic.

  • Terzic fight Antonijevic so he is called Ognjenovic.

    To explain this in more detail: according to a Turkish source, voleyboldefteri, Terzic kicked Antonijevic off from the NT after a fight. In another tweet he wrote that Maja was convinced to come back but she asked to be the captain as well and she got it. Now Serbian NT is divided in half and some girls are not talking to each other at all. Not sure why he tweeted such a thing but I don't see a reason why he would lie.


    I agree on Serdar about Ana, she was not that impressive this summer.

    Wow, the drama begins, lol. Wonder who's not talking to whom!

    Joke aside, I hope this does not affect their team spirit.

    well, that voleyboldefteri is such a drama queen. He always exggerates and makes a big fuss about his gossips. He says ooh i got big news but i can’t share because i promised not to share and now all of a sudden he gives this big piece of information after being abscent from twitter for months. He was just Grindering out there giving no attention to volleyball and came back and trying to get attention.


    I am not saying he is not correct or this is absolutely false since I don’t have any clue about this incident, but I knew for a fact that this guy just likes attention and trying to get it.



    And he said “i just learnt Maja is back to NT” OMG thats like old news lol.

  • I hope this fight won`t affect their relationship ( Terzic & Anna) with Fenerbache. Hopefully they put this aside.


    I find hard to believe some girls are not talking with each other....I follow them on social media and they are always posting photos and mostly of the time there`s a bunch of them together...and it is not always the same group of girls. But the only player that I don`t see much on the photos is actually Maja....but I think she`s very private and she does not like taking photos....even when i see some pics with the Vitra girls Maja always looks uncomfortable.


    Unless Terzic said something and the girls don`t agree with....Something similar happened in 2014 during the GP finals when Ze Roberto said Brazil had only 1 setter ( Dani Lins) as Fabiola did not count as she was useless....and then the whole team side out with Fabiola and were angry with Ze.


    Maybe some of the girls does not agree with Maja asking to be the captain?? I don`t like this also.... Rasic should be kpet as the captain.

    I hope this isn't true, the team won't go far without good team spirit.


    It's a shame for Ana, but really her performances weren't good enough. If Serbia are going to do well at the WCH then they need their setter to play well. Maja is reliable and his performed at a high level for the NT hundreds of times, Zivkovic and Antonijevic weren't showing the required level so I understand why Terzic wanted her back.


    On the other hand, I don't really see why Maja needs to be the captain. Obviously she is a super experienced and respected member of the team whether she is captain or not so I don't see why she'd make a big deal about being captain. Whoever is chosen as captain, it doesn't matter. The other players need to respect Terzic's decision and get on with their job, i.e. winning volleyball matches. A fight in the dressing room won't help anyone.

    I agree with all of this, I think whatever issue there is has been exaggerated and hopefully the players will just get on with the game.

  • Terzić and Rašić are really close and I really doubt he'd strip her off the captain title unless he was completely sure she's fine with it. Also, I'd hope that he learned his lesson after all the crap that happened 10 years ago and would not allow anything that would disrupt the team spirit again.


    As for Antonijević, she and Terzić are going to have to work with each other next season in the same club, so I hope they're both professional enough not to allow whatever problem they may have to escalate beyond the point of no return.


    I think this has been all blown out of proportion. On the other hand, there's almost nothing to be found about this list in Serbian media, no comments, no additional info... It hasn't even been posted on the federation's website yet, and they're usually super up to date. It strikes me as somewhat odd and perhaps is an indication that something's going on.

    I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

    There does seem to be a "core group" of players that are ALWAYS hanging out together - Rašić, Mihajlović, Živković, Stevanović and Malešević (+ Bjelica). And most of them seem to be really close to Antonijević as well, so...

    I mean, I realize it's just baseless speculation and it's perfectly natural that in a bigger collective there would be established groups of those who feel the most comfortable around each other. It happens on every single team.

    However, I'm starting to get a bad feeling somehow. But then again, I very often do :lol:
