I remember that Startseva provided fast setting to Larson and Del Core when they played in Dinamo Kazan. She is not the most spectacular setter but she is technically a good one IMO. She had also won some important titles in her career.
Startseva is maybe not the best setter on earth but she proved many times that she is the best Russian setter and I have not seen anyone close to getting her spot yet. We saw many alternatives like Kosianenko, Babeshina etc and the Russian NT never performed as good as when Startseva is setting.
