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: VakıfBank’s hellish plan – Bartsch to come in January, Egonu in summer!

Re: @Anon - Zhu Ting is not gonna go anywhere till Olympic is over. Wrist injury gonna take sometime to heal and recover. Hopefully She will fully fit before Olympic. Otherwise defending the title is almost impossible for China without Zhu Ting.

If Zhu Ting is still hurt or injured during the tournament, the coach can use her as a middle blocker. I feel she is the best blocker on the team. She has great instincts of where the hitter will hit to, she is tall and her hang time is very good. She is one of the more effective blockers against Egonu.

Thailand win title in Women’s Volleyball at SEA Games for 12th successive time

The different in strength and overall qualities of the team between Thai and the rest are just too great . Thai can still win even with their reserve members. Reply

CL M: Benfica shock Warszawa to record first-ever triumph in pool stage

VERVA Warszawa's defeat was due to Anastasi who too underestimated his opponent.
Starting lineup of VERVA in the match included 4 players who rarely played in the domestic league.

In order to make it to the playoffs, VERVA had to win this match against the weaker team but lost.
Therefore, it became very difficult for VERVA to pass through the group.
