I actually don't mind this play-by-play guy. He creates little storylines to make it a little bit "interesting" for a casual fan. Also I think this is the first guy that called Bartsch MBH.
FIVB Senior World Ranking - Women
After FIVB removes the points from 2015 World Cup, then the array will be as below:
1. SRB 232
2. CHN 220
3. NED 178
4. USA 176
5. ITA 165
6. BRA 150
7. JPN 140
8. RUS 128
9. KOR 98
Then FIVB will add in the new points from the 2019 World Cup as follows:
WC Rank -- WR Points
and for position No. 9 to 12: each gets 5 points
We can only know the exact new WR positions after the completion of this tournament.
first i have ever seen mambru receive serve.
20-5 in the 3rd.
20-5 in the 3rd.
25-9 What a slaughtering!
I think this is one of the 2 lowest score in the whole World Cup. The other was Korea vs Argentina (same score).
And according to the WR, DOM is the 10th best team, in the other hand; Argentina the 12nd...
TUR is, by far, a top 10 team
I wish I could say we played amazing (just ok) but really it's just the Dominicans hitting a wall. They played so much volleyball more than any team in the world this season and it shows.
Cameroon is beating Argentina 2 - 0 as for now.
I also find interesting that people totally ignore Netherlands when they have actually reached the semi finals in both Olympics and Word Championship, but I guess some people sees VNL wins as more important.
If Netherlands makes it....I will certainly consider them among the favorites, just behind CHN, SRB and ITA.
No one sees vnl more important. But people see most recent performance as most important
Nice to see that both NED and RUS are motivated, should be an interesting match!
Great start by Sloëtjes! Reception needs to be better, so Sloëtjes doesn't get overloaded with balls.
NED chokes again, blew up a 5 point lead(Maybe 4?) Russia's block works in the end.
How can you give this away!!!
Netherlands never can close out a set and that is the reason why they never became first in a tournament!
Buijs again the weak link in the team
ROSSIYA ROSSIYA ROSSIYA
Russia makes a great comeback to stay in the medal race! Fantastic volleyball.... as commented by the FIVB commentator (who's this guy??? seems to be a good commentator)
RUS 26 : 24 NED -- Set 1
Two RUS blocks give the first set to RUS.
Koroleva should win best MB of the tournament
Really a shame that Netherlands lost that set. Buijs making so many errors. Robin and Dalderoop are missed
The problem is that both Oude Luttikhuis and Jasper are not even close to Buijs' level. So there isn't any good backup available
WOW!!! A very high intensity match runs in very high tempo!!!
FIRST CLASS among the two ECV titans!!!
it was 21-15 for ned
