Brazil will play for the World Championship gold, after beating Serbia 3-0 (25-22, 25-21, 25-22) in the semifinals.


Simply, Brazil had everything on their side while Serbia didn't have that energy they had during the whole tournament.

Brazil opened a game with a 3-0 scoring run as Bruno Rezende scored two aces! The Serbian lads entered the match with a small dose of nervous, making a few mistakes from the service line and allowing the rival to receive the ball in a perfect way. At the second TTO, Brazil had a 16-11 lead, thanks to a good service of Mauricio Souza.

For the first time in this game, Marko Ivovic sent a good serve to score an ace and to force Brazil to make two mistakes for a 4-0 run (16-15). Brazil managed to increase the lead to 20-17, however, Serbia answered back with a 2-0 run (20-19).

After changing the setter, Renan Dal Zotto’s side again managed to earn three points of advantage 23-20. It was a difficult task for the Serbian side to make another comeback and the first set went to Brazil 25-23. 

The start of the third set was much more uncertain but that didn't last long. Serbia were in the race until 15:15 and then we saw Lucas Saatkamp in action! With two blocks and a few good actions of his teammates, they quickly got to a big lead 24-18! Marko Podrascanin only managed to decrease the advantage of the rival with good serves, but Brazil doubled the lead 2-0.

Serbia definitely started better the third set, creating a 3-0 lead. Nikola Grbic's side managed to keep it only for a few minutes, as the Brazilian team tied the score (9:9). Renan Dal Zotto made two substitutions (Arjona - Rezende, Guerra - Wallace) to try to take the lead in this set.

After Serbia created a new advantage (15-12), Brazil with some good actions managed to create a 4-0 scoring run and to take the lead at the second TTO! It was a tough moment for the Serbian side, that didn't manage to recover and we are going to watch Brazil in a battle for gold tomorrow!

I like her. I think she has improved more than Gunes but Gunes is younger. Maybe that's why she got a 3 year contract instead of Gunes's two. Reply
