VNL F6 W: Guidetti has magic stick – Turkey in the final!

1913 0

Giovanni Guidetti one of the best volleyball coaches and person who doesn’t know for defeat in important matches, managed to bring the young team of Turkey to the final of the inaugural FIVB Volleyball Nations League.

  

Although they barely passed the regular stage of the competition (5th), they came to Nanjing with the happy thoughts that they managed to secure the final tournament. That confirmed the coach Giovanni Guidetti at the beginning of the Final Six: 

“We are absolutely happy and proud of our journey to deserve the privilege to be here in the Finals. We will play the Finals like we have done all throughout the VNL, just thinking about point after point, with the drive to become better.”

And they really played for each point. The first, they had very hard games in the pool against USA and  Serbia (5 sets both matches) and then in the semifinal just crushed Brazil in straight sets (25-23, 25-23, 25-22).

O.K. maybe it wasn’t easy but Turkey finished the match in only three sets!

Meryem Boz (14) and  Hande Baladin (14) with middle blockers Eda Erdem Dundar (11) and Zehra Gunes (10) led the team. They played like one and that was the key for the victory.

On the Brazilian side, Tandara Alves Caixeta scored 20 points while Gabriela Braga Guimaraes  14 points and they were the only players who scored double effect. The next are Adenizia Da Silva and Bia with only 4 points. It seems that Brazil just had a bad day.

ITA M: Modena tie the series vs. Perugia, Lube close to clinch the spot in the finals

Zaytzev was simply terrific, finally. :)
Lube again wins the serve /passing battle, which they live by in this matchup.
Trentino looks fragile and unsure. Russell is not swinging with confidence, Kovacevic passing is off and serve is not there. Gianelli's location missed numerous times
Why is Vetorri EVER pulled for a significant less player in Nelli? That the Trentino coach cannot do again. All this and yet Trentino still could have won match 1 and pushed last night to 5.
Trentino will correct their mistakes and gain momentum on Monday at home and push this series to a 5th match. Lube will tire. Reply

I believe there has been a typo. Libero is Jani Kovačič and not Jan Pokeršnik(receiver) Reply
