Both teams are taunting each other
Is russia locked for a podium?
if brazil win 3-0 would it snatched the bronze?
Drews may be higher in attack percentage than Goncha but Drews was not a true starter and Goncha leaves her in the dust if we talk about overall points and impact to the whole team #facts
I dont think Drew is at Gonchas level.
Atk efficiency Drews is at 45.95 and Goncha 45.1 with very low reception from team mate.
Drews 100 points Goncha 162:
Drews 0.24 Goncha 0.35
The whole tournament woyld become different if Korea put all best members at all game. They almost gave up game with russia and netherlands and I think the result could have changed with the best members of korea.
Korea's opposite KHJ played not that well today but LJY and KYK covered them all. LDY's setting wasn't that stable especially when it goes to opposite, but she keeps on following the ball and frequently makes running sets, making it more easy to attack with less blockers.
LJY was definetly amazing. She got 60 percents og receives I think. Reception was not that stable but she makes the point with her attacking skills(48%)
KYK made 5 aces today, her serve was really good today. And korean middle blocker's attacking rates was amazing. KSJ(7/8) and PEJ(6/6).
Brazil was a mess today. They made so many mistakes and they seems to have concentrated the next game against russia. They need 3 points today but they didn't made it. In 4th sets it seems that their concentration was definetly out of shape. Also Brazil NT doesm't need Sheilla anymore I think. Will get better if Natalia and Tandara comes baack.
Do you think Brazil is still a podium material in Japan Olympics?
Whats tour analysis on Brazil Team?
I think Lorenne lacks the star power of Former Sheila. I dont see a sheila on her. No
Gabi- very strong but short player. Makes her less competitive.
Mara- shes very strong attacker.
Fabiana- great slider. She can be a starter in my opinion.
Drussyla- i dont see a potential in her. I think her height limits her greatness
as I wrote before, the Korean team is not the team to be underestimated because a team that won 4-th place in the 2012 OGs.
they have a good head coach (+ KYK) now and I think they won't be easy team to defeat in the Olympics. This result was expected if you ask me.
Agree KYK single handedly brought korea to the volleyball world at that Time.
shes far from her peak already. But we can saw glimpses of her queenly power
Russia is becoming really dangerous as we go closer to Olympics.
Goncharova- i believe she is within top 3 best hitters at this point. Shes getting low percentage due to all shank balls being given to her. To see her managed huge points and decent efficiency despite russias lack of talent in receiving makes her a Queen.
Lazareva- strong potential here. I think shes even better than khaletskia at being Sub Opp position. Being given this sub OH role makes me remind of younger Goncharova who played lethal OH attacker during London Olympics, except the reception. She can go on this path as both OH of russia is not at Koshelevas level.
Kosheleva- can come back as a sub OP. Not sure if she will accept butt i dont think national team is her priority. She hasnt been playing since 2016 olympics.
Lazarenko- dangerous. Strong in atk and serve. Must be starting 6 than efimova in my opinion.
Koroleva- shes becoming the greatest of her generation as of the moment. Great in atk and defense.
Fetisova- better defender than Korolova but lacks digging when at the back of the rotation.
Brazil is out of contention now. Everyone expected they could 3-0 Korea. Shame
Brazil. Still in medal contention
Busato: i think he is a passionate coach. You can certainly see that he connects with the players.
Goncharova: shes hitting 95kph a while ago.
Had some good digs as well.
koroleva: first time seeing a slide spike from her and she did it kore than once in this match.
kosheleva if healthy can be a better double sub vs. Khaletskia
Love Brazil middles
Zhu ting played below par. Needs to step up tomorrow unless thry will be destroyed by USA.
LI yingying- her debut was bad. There is a potential though.
Drussyla- i can see more negatives than positives on her game.
gabi- strong spiker. Commits a lot of unnecessary errors on set 5
Lorrene playing surprisingly good. Shes not that bad.
Brazil could have won 3-0
That Li Yingying cant receive the balls properly.
zhu playing below par.
both opposite cant score a point.
Before there were Boskovic and Egonu, there was Goncharova as the super opposite
True!! I think Gonchas prime is better than Egonu and Boskovic.
I remember 2010-2015. Shes getting 30 plus points in just 3 sets.
What i like about her is not just the power but her technique. She hits the ball on a strange way.
anyone knows where is kimura Saori??
Also the great opposite of japan, nagaoka??
i wonder what will happen to the mix when you put back kosheleva.
Fetisova is also a missing piece in russian defense.
Koroleva in Thaisa Menesez mode.
Goncharova is still reaching 30 pts even if shes past prime.
Is there a chance that US team would be eliminated?
Given that italy would lose 0 to 3 against canada
And brazil winning 3 0 against france?
