Chinese Female Superleague 2020/2021 (with National Championship 2020)

  • Rabadzhieva had an interview recently and here's what she had to say about the Chinese League.


    Regarding where she will play for the 2021-2022:

    "Of course I will definitely return to China next season." (When the season ended there were also talks about Robinson confirmed to renew with Guangdong next season so I guess we'll see this duo again.)


    She also had some words about Zhu, Zhang, and Ding Xia:

    "For me, Zhu Ting is currently the best player in the world's women's volleyball world. I enjoy playing with her very much. You know, she looks so easy to play. She can do everything she can defend, pass or attack. This is the player I admire, because I also play the 4th position. As the main attacker, I should have comprehensive skills."


    "There is also Zhang Changning from Jiangsu. She preformed very well this season and is in excellent form. Ding Xia from Liaoning, I don't want to face her across the net because she is difficult to deal with. She is a very powerful setter."

  • Do you mean Melissa Vargas? I read she’s been granted Turkish citizenship...will she be joining the Turkish team for Tokyo 2020 ?

    There are rumours that she also has Serbian citizenship.

    Yes, ex-Cuban Vargas, she's granted a Turkish citizenship. handed over by Erdogan himself in a ceremony :whistle:


    Of course not the Tokyo cycle. But Paris cycle could be.

    Need to wait two years, so starting with 2023 vnl. She will represent Turkey

  • Need to wait two years, so starting with 2023 vnl. She will represent Turkey

    so, I read that there’s a waiting time of three years from the date she last represented her former country (in this case, Cuba) and in addition, she’ll have to wait 2 years from the date of becoming a citizen of her new country ?


    I believe Melissa last played for Cuba four years ago, so in theory, if she had taken out

    Turkish citizenship two years ago, she would have been eligible for Tokyo 2020 ?

  • 2 years from the date of becoming a citizen of her new country
