The top seed Allianz MTV Stuttgart came to a win from qualifying to the 2018/19 German Women’s Volleyball Championship finals.

 

The top seed Allianz MTV Stuttgart achieved a hard-fought win against surprising semifinalists and also No.6 seed Ladies in black Aachen, who eliminated powerhouse Dresdner SC in the quarterfinals, in Game 2 of the 2019/19 1. Bundesliga Frauen playoff semis.

Stuttgart prevailed in four sets, partially 25-23, 25-20, 15-25, 27-25, in an away match that was held abroad. Given that Neuköllner Straße, the home ground of the Ladies in black, was not licensed by Bundesliga for the playoffs, the Aachen team decided to move all of their encounters to Belgium. The Men’s team of Greenyard Maaseik was kind enough to show hospitality to the “Ladies” at their Steengoed Arena.

American Krystal Rivers was the best scorer for Stuttgart with 14 points while the Swiss Maja Storck poured in 21 for the Ladies in Black.

2019/19 1. Bundesliga Frauen playoff semifinals – Game 2 (G3 on April 18):

(6) Ladies in black Aachen – (1) Allianz MTV Stuttgart 1-3 (23-25, 20-25, 25-15, 25-27), series 0-2

(4) SC Potsdam – (2) SSC Palmberg Schwerin, series 0-2

By Mark Lebedew: The Best Player You Might Have Heard Of...but have probably forgotten

Older video, records and analyses, editing, research by Mark Lebedew are very interesting. I take his work as priceless.. No one else do such a work...He provides us with many volleyball jewels, observations.. In past we often could not see many top tournaments, or matches on TV ….There was no Internet, no YT. Only very limited TV ... We often did not know the background, problems on some tournaments - see e.g. what happened during Italy vs Netherlands OG 1992, on M.L. YT channel, and how it had influenced a final with Brazil..
In time of pandemic, we can take a lesson from some former activities on courts . In past there was a much more decent behaviour during matches, avoiding useless personal contacts , no so and such intimacy as nowadays, no expressive shouting as is a current rule after killing spike or blocks, ourts... Only at the end of the match, tournaments emotions were same as now... (Now we see on 75 and more the useless, risky, ritual teamś hugging per a match) .. Moreover until 1998, volleyball was for TV fans very friendly - due to of a perfect visible. recognizable white ball. Since this time, the screen fans eyes suffer - volleyball has become a pantomime on screens.
Moreover the game was much more smoothly - no so many and so long interruptions as nowadays.. Majority of referees had a respect..
I suppose, if volleyball wants to survive this pandemic crisis, it will have to return to some above mentioned procedures.. Systematically...
