well there are a few outsides better than Wang Yunlu, so hopefully they get selected, and Wang Mengjie being back could help the situation
i really find it hard to believe she is not going to WCH though. as far as i know she did her surgery a loooong time ago and isn't in rehab.
(edit: also you can always root for the men's team, they actually have potential for once and have a decent draw with Canada, Italy, and Turkiye in the WCHs. Plus Japan and Iran are sending B teams/Junior teams to the AVC Cup, so there's that competition too)
I know her surgery was long ago, but when will Zhang actually get in the gym and back to training which she needs the most after a long period without play. She's busy doing media stuff that does not correlate intentions to play at WCH.
This VNL was actually the first time I watched the mens team closely. They looked pretty good, Zhang Jingyin definitely made a name for himself in some matches. Certainly heading in the right direction after so much up and downs with Lozano. Will Jiang Chuan play WCH? I know he had an injury/surgery something, but they need his help to ease pressure from Zhang.
