Turkey maintained their leadership in the 2019 FIVB Women’s Volleyball Nations League as they beat the USA in straight sets, partially 25-15, 25-17, and 27-25, on Week 4 opening in Pool 16 (Jiangmen, China).

 

Turkey took a little revenge on the USA for losing the last year’s final in their first VNL encounter since that epic match in which the USA came twice from behind in sets (from 0-1 and 1-2).

Turkey set a new national team record for the longest winning streak in a world-level major tournament (6) to stay at the top of the charts with a 9-1 record. The United States are fifth with a 7-3 record.

Ebrar Karakurt tallied 20 points for the winning side, while Jordan Thompson made 10 for the USA as the only double-digit player in her team.

 

China have beaten Poland to win their eighth successive match in the 2019 VNL (8-2 record), sixth in a row in straight sets, leveling with Turkey who scored the same number of victories with a 3-0 scoreline.

Pool 16 hosts out-blocked rivals (13-4) with Hu Mingyuan and Yan Ni standing out in this element with 5 and 4 kill blocks, respectively. Zhu Ting top-scored for China with 13 points. Malwina Smarzek notched 17 for Poland (7-3) to stay at the top of the tournament’s top scorers list with 262 points. She is followed by Brayelin Martínez from the Dominican Republic (201 points).

This is just the proof how long are promises honored in professional volleyball. Last year Lube said that Stankovic, belowed El Capetano, will be coming back next year when he obtain Italian citizenship, he's been with Lube for 10 years, and we want him back. Reply

RUS W: Karpol enters Guinness World Records!

Watching Nikolay Karpol and Yevgeni Trefilov (handball, head coach of the Russia women's national team) during the timeouts always made me feel sorry for these girls and was amusing at the same time. They both created the stereotypical image of a typical Russian coach – a big guy, always unsatisfied and yelling at everyone :) Still they both achieved a lot and it cannot be denied. Reply
