Connection between Gabi and both setters doesn’t seem to be good yet. I don’t think we see her regular swings when attacking and I expect her to better. She doesn’t play bad but it is not there yet. Zehra was really good but she should have gotten more balls in my opinion. Haak still needs time. I expect her to be better. Nothing to say about Meliha and Ebrar. They were simply bad and added nothing to the game. Some users supported Gozde Yilmaz and declared her as good local backup but this is what she does generally when she comes in. She adds nothing to the game against good teams and makes mistakes.
Fener played really good. Naz was outstanding, Robinson and Branicka were both great. I am shocked to see Robinson joining so late to team and getting along already, both volleyball and friendship wise. Eda was good as well. Bahar didn’t make too many mistakes but she is not enough. They need Dicle as soon as possible but who knows how she’ll come back after should injury. Most players seem to struggle after shoulder injuries. Vargas was great a lot of times but made some unforced errors as well.
As it is said before, Both Haak and Vargas would have been better if they were playing for a better NT. They could have gotten more experience and playing times against good teams. And Vargas lost a lot of time during her injury and bureaucracy to be allowed to play after leaving Cuba. You can see the damage in her game, in my opinion that was the reason she couldn’t handle the pressure last year in the play offs and finals of the Turkish Cup. I hope she will be better this year.
