Brazil’s victorious run goes on as the South American giants blew away the world champions Serbia on Week 4 closing in Pool 15 (Tokyo, Japan) of the 2019 FIVB Women’s Volleyball Nations League.

 

Brazil wrote their fifth successive win in the 2019 VNL as they defeated highly rejuvenated Serbia’s squad by a 3-0 (25-23, 25-21, 25-15), whose lack of experience resulted in 10 unforced errors more than the rivals (23-13). Now, the “Seleção” came to a step from securing a spot in the Final Six with a 9-3 record (28 points). On the other hand, Serbia suffered the fourth defeat in a row, and have very low odds to earn a place in the Finals (5-7; 15 points) via Week 5.

Brazil outside hitter Gabriela Guimarães “Gabi” scored game-high 21 points. Katarina Lazović made 13 for Serbia, while Jovana Kocić set up 5 kill blocks.

 

Japan continued their domination over Thailand in major world-level tournaments, beating them for the 10th straight time to get a 7-5 record (21 points) in the 2019 VNL. Thailand are at 4-8 (13 points).

Ai Kurogo top-scored for Japan with 21 points, while Aya Watanabe contributed to the win with 4 kill blocks. Onuma Sittirak and Ajcharaporn Kongyot scored 11 apiece for Thailand.
