CL M: Golden set decides the winner in St. Petersburg – Skra advance to the semis!

957 0

Even though the home team managed to win the game in four sets, they didn’t have enough power to win the golden set and to advance to the semis.

 

PGE Skra Belchatow took the opportunity to win this part of the game which automatically sent them to the semis.

Zenit St. Petersburg controlled the situation on the court almost during the whole match but the tie-break took them out of the rhythm and unfortunately for the home fans, they are out as well from the Champions League.

Gyorgy Grozer was the most dominant player in this game with 28 points, while Jakub Kochanowski had 18 on the other side.

By Mark Lebedew: The Best Player You Might Have Heard Of...but have probably forgotten

Older video, records and analyses, editing, research by Mark Lebedew are very interesting. I take his work as priceless.. No one else do such a work...He provides us with many volleyball jewels, observations.. In past we often could not see many top tournaments, or matches on TV ….There was no Internet, no YT. Only very limited TV ... We often did not know the background, problems on some tournaments - see e.g. what happened during Italy vs Netherlands OG 1992, on M.L. YT channel, and how it had influenced a final with Brazil..
In time of pandemic, we can take a lesson from some former activities on courts . In past there was a much more decent behaviour during matches, avoiding useless personal contacts , no so and such intimacy as nowadays, no expressive shouting as is a current rule after killing spike or blocks, ourts... Only at the end of the match, tournaments emotions were same as now... (Now we see on 75 and more the useless, risky, ritual teamś hugging per a match) .. Moreover until 1998, volleyball was for TV fans very friendly - due to of a perfect visible. recognizable white ball. Since this time, the screen fans eyes suffer - volleyball has become a pantomime on screens.
Moreover the game was much more smoothly - no so many and so long interruptions as nowadays.. Majority of referees had a respect..
I suppose, if volleyball wants to survive this pandemic crisis, it will have to return to some above mentioned procedures.. Systematically...
