On the first day of the 20th Asian Senior Volleyball Championship, all the favorites started with victories.


In Pool A, in a five-set thriller, Australia beat Qatar (25-23, 25-21, 23-25, 18-25, 15-10) for the first victory on the Asian Volleyball Championship.

Mark Lebedew, Head coach of Australia: “This tournament is very competitive. My players did a good job in the first two sets, but they were deconcentrated in the third and fourth set. In the fifth set, I took out Edgar because he had not played for a long time, and William was a good replacement and made a big contribution. Qatar was a tough opponent as they improved a lot”.

In the second match of Group A, Iran defeated Sri Lanka with 3: 0.

In the Pool B, Japan opens the tournament with a 3-0 victory (25-21, 25-15, 25-11) over Hong Kong.

Yuichi Nakagaichi, Head coach of Japan: “My players were a bit nervous in the first set. From the second set onwards, my players took control of the match”.

In the second match of this group, Chinese Taipei were better than Thailand 3-1.

In Pool C we had another five-set thriller in which India beat Kazakhstan 3-2 (31-29, 25-14, 28-30, 18-25, 15-9). In the second match, China defeated Oman 3-1.

EUROVOLLEY 2019 M: Vital Heynen’s surprise – makes 6 substitutions at once (VIDEO)

Very irresponsible by coach Heynen! Team could of get trouble if someone would get injured in that set. You have only 6 substitutions allowed. Reply

POL M: Heynen criticizes EuroVolley format – “It’s not good for Volleyball”

Re: @~sadaf
Issue of his statement was that he asks for restricted, limited participation of NTs, due to of absence of tight matches...Moreover he had used the argument - results 3:0. So that I have used the statistics from other competitions, where should have been much more tight matches - like VNL, World Championship, due to of selection criteria . ( I did not treat the formula of VNL at all... )
The results of this small analysis are interesting, which I did not expected - see my previous comments. Remarkable indication is that the in final phases of these tournaments where had competed the strongest NTs, which should have been on the similar/same level, the percentage of matches which had ended 3:0 is higher as in a prelimenary phase, which is also pretty high. Especially when these NTs should have been the best in the world...

However a different question is - why was increased the numbers of NTs at European Championship?
Perhaps I will try to make some remarks on one aspect of that later on, from a volleyball fan point of view.. Reply

[@John Doek] Everyone criticised VNL, Heynen being one of them, when its formula was introduced. It is mainly the fault of VNL that there is so little time to rest and prepare for bigger tournaments in the second part of national season, there is too much matches to play. Reply
