    i guess the officially annouced roster only include 5 players nowadays

    Setter: Macris, Roberta

    Opposite: Tandara

    Libero: Leia, Suelen

    i believe the other 9 players will not be wider than VNL rosters.

    CBV reported BRA team arrived in Uberlandia today.

    But i noticed Natalia, who was announced not playing, was in the airport, together with macris.

    who else arrived ? Sidney

    Zeng and Diao will be cut for 90% sure. because Zeng's injury is getting heavier these days, for a veteran, it is hard. the injury could be the only resistance for her to overcome and go farther to Tokyo.

    Through an interview, Zeng appreciated all her experience and luck to be with NT till now. She is never feeling regretful at anybody or anything, and she is still positive in her attitution to train with her teammates no matter what will happen to her in the future. She will count the days and prepare her best for any result.

    Personally speaking, her experience shown in WGCC 2017, Wch in 2018 and VNL 2019 is definately treasured and is inspiring the youngsters.

    i think there is another thread taling about the same topic with mine, so any BBS administrator could be very kind to combine the both together?

    BTW, does anybody know why DR is not participating the Pan Games in Peru this year?

    Ze Roberto is preparing for the annually most important tournament -----WOQT for Tokyo;

    It is reported that Fabiana, Sheilla and Suelen are all reserved for this tournament, who will trained together with the VNL players;

    Besides, definately a B team will attend Pan Games, so i guess it would be a kind mixed combination of “partial A team not in WOQT + Underaged + Universiade”

    honestly, both Ebrar and Drews deserve to be best OPP IMO. Even if they lost the match against China, she got 31pts today.

    as an exellent opposite, Karakurt still has to improved a lot because her attacks' efficiency is heavily affected by the errors that are completely out of her control at some time

    Players of Brazil U20 to participate the friendlies against Argentina, China, Turkey in MG are:

    Setters: Kenya, Rose

    Opposites: Kisy, Jheovana

    Middle Blockers: Laura Kudies, Daniella Seibt, Julia Kudies

    Outside Hitters: Julia Bergmann, Ana Cristina

    Libero: Letícia Moura

    apparently it is not a full roster, does anybody have more information about it?

    Lin Li is not in her best shape still but now she is much better than what she performed last year.

    Ni Feifan makes me feel refreshing again after Wang Mengjie.

    Wang Yuanyuan and Zheng Yixin are just unbalanced players that cannot be dominant in both attachking and blocking, on the contrary, Yang Hanyu is more potential to improve.

    Liu Xiaotong and Liu Yanhan shall be stay in the main roster as the backup of Zhu Ting and Li Yingying, Zhang Changning.

    roberta and amanda should go, to get more practices

    I will accept these predictions as nobody knew China’s roster before. I fully understand you and I think that everyone should post prediction as late as possible to be confirmed of all things around (like rosters) but I understand also that somebody may be afraid to forget to predict and want to post results earlier. I want to have kind a human approach and just have fun.

    I can lead future predictions as well and we can always discuss more strict rules if you would like to ;)

    yes, agree with your comments. there used to be a kinda clear front rules annouced when every prediction game starts. for example, i would not post any results that i had already missed, i see many other friends doing so here too.

    but for sure i am not taking it too serious which is only for fun.

    however, i noticed China combination of A2+B1 also mixed up a great many predictions although many knew the roster. so this is unexpectation of games, and predication isn't easy. but i like it.
