  • Folie came in the game as sub just in 3rd set and scored 2/3 in attack and 3 blocks....


    Danesi 2 point in 2 in half set, but I still do believe She is way more important than Christina.

  • This Bulgaria v Argentina match is loads of fun. Great rallies and brain farts abound. The announcer dude is also having a great time.

  • Day 3 of this tournament will be so epic...


    China vs Turkey

    Russia vs South Korea

    Serbia vs Poland

    Italy vs Netherlands

    Brazil vs Dominican Republic


    And all are decisive as well (most likely)

  • IDK. 25-9 doesn’t sound like loads of fun.

    Watch it.

    2–1 Bulgaria


    [Edit] Maybe I'm just enjoying the announcer's mean spirited sense of humor:


    "Can't anyone find the floor here!?!" :rolll:


    "Finally! a point has been scored"

  • China, Russia, Serbia, Italy and Brazil are clear favorites but I hope for some surprises :D

    Yea true, call me crazy but I'm rooting for Turkey, South Korea, Poland, Netherlands and Dominican Republic tbh :lol:

    That would be cosmic scenario :D


    Honestly, my biggest hope is Turkey, then I hope for Poland to qualify (but Bosković had 66% today, so she is good as always and I doubt in Poland) . Netherlands beating Italy is not impossible, I think it will be the most entertaining match.

  • sorry, sitenoise, i didn’t mean to rain on your parade. i did watch a little of the 3rd set. that brit announcer has such a weird voice but he’s good, knowledgeable.


    it’s just that ARG is a team that frustrates me. tell you more later.

  • Russia look much better with Fetisova, Startseva and Goncharova in NT

    I do agree with you, they really make a huge difference. But I honestly don't want Goncharova to be overused against weak opponents due to her injury. Instead, I want Voronkova and Fetisova to support Natasha Goncharova in attack as much as possible.

    What is Goncharova's injury?
