The Dutch Women’s National Team is in a very good shape at the very beginning of the new volleyball season as they ran over Russia at Week 2 closing of the 2017 FIVB World Grand Prix – Group 1, 3-0 (25-18, 25-22, 25-15).

 

After demolishing Russia in front of rival’s fans in Kaliningrad, in Pool F1, The Netherlands settled at the top of Group 1 rankings, with 5-1, from where they will await the continuation of the Intercontinental Round, which will occur in only 4 days.

Russian NT head coach Vladimir Kuzyutkin will definitely have to work much harder with his ladies as they achieved only two wins in six matches of the Grand Prix, so far, and already endangered their spot at the Final Six.

Celeste Plak Anne Buijs duo led Dutch NT with 16 and 15 points, respectively, while Irina Zaryazhko noted 11 as the only player with double digits in Russia.

Dominican Republic have a quite solid Grand Prix campaign at the moment, reaching 3-3 after a dramatic tie-break victory over Belgium, partially 25-13, 21-25, 25-21, 18-25, 15-11, nailing rivals to the bottom of the standings (0-6). This game also took place in Kaliningrad, Russia. Bethania De La Cruz and Brayelin Martínez scored 22 points each for the Caribbean side. Kaja Grobelna made 21 for the „Yellow Tigers“.

ITA M: Austrian bomber Buchegger stays in Ravenna for one more year, Orduna goes to Monza

The next season will be the real deal, despite what people say, this dude didnt show me nothing, always choking againts giants team and next year, unless they hire Bruno will strugle so hard, he uses his height to help his lil capabilities to jump. not everyone can born with a 205cm tall so he better use it good next season cause with Orduna out and lack of good experience setters out there will be the twice of hard, plus no european cup to save the season this year. my call 10 place out of play out.
