I don't think Stysiak - being quite unfamiliar until recently even for the hardcore-fans - has found time yet to summon a solid pack of haters to be honest. She had some skeptics, for sure, but I suppose a lot of them have vanished now after her classy performance so far in this championship.
I watched long bits, perhaps half of the game in sum, between Italy and Russia. I have to say that with that type of performance Italy displayed there, Serbia should just drive through them in a rather convinient fashion; no stability whatsoever in neither reception nor attack isnt going to constitute a miracle medicine against the well-oiled machine they are up against tomorrow. With that being said, Italy can for sure up their game just in time for the semis, although I find it somewhat unlikely myself. Just as some persons have already pointed out, Egonu isnt close right now to being as dominant as she has been, and, as long as it does not change, I believe Italy will be forced to pay a high price for it in the shape of coming up short in this "battle of titans".
