I am sorry for Serie A. I wanna make a comparison between champions of the turkish league and Serie A. On one side, the MVP is an olympics gold medallist and olympics' MVP zhu ting, on the other side you have joanna 'the nothing' woloscz. In the turkish final there were 8 players who played in the semifinals of rio 2016 (ting, boskovic, ognyenovic, rasic, larson, adams, sloetjes, robinson), on the other hand, Serie A final had 3 olympics semifinalists (de kruijf, hill, plak). Absolutely, this is not the definite indication of the volleyball quality, but it shows something. Woloscz has no quality at all and in a stronger league she wouldnt be the MVP. I am really sorry for Serie A and please MAKE SERIE A GREAT AGAIN. In addition to that, in Turkish league final there were 11 players, who got a medal in the 2017 european championship (akyol, kirdar, simge, onal, orge, caliskan, baladin, sloetjes, Rasic, ogneyonovic, boskovic), whereas in serie A there were only 2 players (plak, de kruijf). Really? Who is woloscz, who is fabris!? PLEASE MAKE SERIE A GREAT AGAIN.

Re: @BRAZILvolleygirl
How I hate you, you write such stupid things. You don't have to play at the Olympics to be a great volleyball player.

Don't be sorry cause you clearly know nothing. First without the Novara suicide against Galatasary at home there could be 2 italian team in champions league final 4. Second you forgot the world league finalists like Egonu, young but stronger than any spiker you mentioned before, Chirichela, Folie acc...
Fabris and Woloz are great player but they don't play in a strong national team. Talking about last European Championship the best setter of the tournament Dijkema play in Firenze, best oh Buijs next year will play in Italy like the best mb Veljkovic.
Ognyenovic, Larsson, Adams are all good player but nothing special, in Turkey there is one really strong team the rest is nothing.

WC 2019 W: Brazil beat weakened team of Serbia in thriller, China win Asian derby

Because the VNL consists of teams that have been invited by the FIVB, rather than have truly qualified for it based on competitive criteria. These teams (e.g. Belgium & Slovenia with the men) would unjustifiedly lose a lot of points on the ranking because they didn't pay the FIVB enough to participate. on the other hand weak teams like South Korea would see their ranking go up just purely by participating.

In its current format the VNL is nothing but a worthless demonstration tournament of friendly games... :-(

WC 2019 W: Brazil beat weakened team of Serbia in thriller, China win Asian derby

The results of the VNLs don't give the participating national teams any points for the FIVB rankings. Does anybody or WorldofVolley has any idea, why? Reply
