    I heard that Dom. Republic had decided not to participate in the World PO, in favor of Puerto Rico because of dissappointing performances.... same thing with Peru, the runner up in southamerica...... so, it may be more surprises from FIVB to fill these spots..... Netherlands could be an option. ?(

    I really hope that it'll be the Netherlands 8) But if there's one thing we've learned about the netherlands this tournament it's that they can't deal with pressure. They've won the GP (being the underdog) but then played awful at the EC (everyone expected them to play great) and now this tournament.. ?(

    How is your heart, Nastja? Mine was jumping like a rabbit in the second set :lol:

    Very good game by our girls (except 3rd set), they showed character. Barańska was superb, as well as Dziękiewicz :heart: :love: and Zenik - she defended almost every possible ball. Skowrońska had good and bad moments. In my opinion Glinka was the worse in Polish team, couldn't have finished anything. But she scored in one of the most important moments in the game: in the end of the 2nd set, which was crucial, I think.

    Evangeline, I have nothing against The Netherlands in the semis, but you have to beat Germany, which won't be easy.

    It'll be hard, but not impossible to beat germany... After all, if you've watched Germany-Turkey you would've seen that germany isn't really in a great shape. Nor is the netherlands :roll: but I think they played better then Germany...
    We'll see how Germany plays against Poland, then we'll be able to compare them better. 8)

    BTW, Croatia is playing really great against russia! First set they lost (25-19) but still I think that's a great result for a team like Croatia. Hope that it'll be a nice match! :thumbsup:

    Germany-turkey 2-0 now (2nd set 26-24 :cursing: ) I really hope the turkish girls will win at least a set, they deserve it! Germany is playing with very little passion, and not really great, while they've got almost all the suporters on their side :down:
