Tandara Caixeta will not be able to play the Final Six of the 2019 FIVB Women’s Volleyball Nations League.


The Brazilian Volleyball Confederation (CBV) published that the Women’s national team opposite hitter Tandara will not play the Final Six of the 2019 Nations League in Nanjing, China, between July 3 and July 7.

A 30-year-old player felt discomfort in the abdominal region last week during training in Saquarema. After being subjected to the tests, edema was observed in Tandara’s abdominal muscle (rectus abdominis muscle).

The coaching staff of Brazil national team has chosen to preserve the opposite hitter for the Qualifications for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games that will take place in Brazil between August 1 and August 3.

It is a pity, because Tandara is 100 times better than Ana Paula Borgo.

I don't like the comment that Balkestein-Grothues underperformed! We all know she is there to receive and defend. As you said: 0 aces for Brazil, so she did a great job! Aswell did Schoot, who was almost perfect in receive and defence! Reply

Because the VNL consists of teams that have been invited by the FIVB, rather than have truly qualified for it based on competitive criteria. These teams (e.g. Belgium & Slovenia with the men) would unjustifiedly lose a lot of points on the ranking because they didn't pay the FIVB enough to participate. on the other hand weak teams like South Korea would see their ranking go up just purely by participating.

In its current format the VNL is nothing but a worthless demonstration tournament of friendly games... :-(
