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).

TUR W: Guidetti addresses managers and families of EuroVolley U16 winners with request

I am not sure why coach Guidetti would say that. That's their livelihood they are playing at. National pride only lasts a short time then it's back to work playing for a living. Vakifbank is a perfect example of paying big $$ for top players. Do they play for pride? Get real. Motivation is always money. Reply

ECH U16 W: Turkey outplay defending champions Italy to win gold medal

RUS W: Despite renewing with Dinamo Moscow, Ognjenović will join VakıfBank

Wow! Ognjenović had some heated clashes with the Vakifbank coach on court while she was playing for EcZ. I have seen in one video that she was screaming at him. Ognjenović is fiery and the captain of the National Serbia team and is considered one of the best setters (and smart) in the world. I like this move. The current setter for Vakifbank makes bad decisions(and poor sets) at bad times that caused them. Reply
