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.

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

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
