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“.

RUS W: Goncharova – “I feel more confident because coach Terzic makes me feel that way”

Re: @Vadim
Vakifbank risks with their service and is still considered the strongest club in the world. Alekno made the biggest risk of them all by putting Muserskiy to opposite and Mikhailov to outside attacker in the London Olympics while still considered the best in their original positions...So how is that risk is bad? Players need to master and overcome the risk to not call it anymore as risk. Reply

You have to be ready, well prepared and trained, or you have to play risky? No sense. You are super star. Every time you have to be ready. Not to have any kind of risk. Risk is 50-50. Reply
