Tianjin successfully started the 2019/20 Chinese Women’s Volleyball Championship regular season while their main star Zhu Ting made her re-debut in the competition after three years.

 

Zhu Ting left Super League three years ago. Back then she was defending the colors of Henan. Chinese volleyball fans eagerly waited for the moment when the superstar will return and make her re-debut in the country’s top division. And it has come today when Zhu started for Tianjin.

The fate has toyed with the 2016 Rio Olympic MVP given that her first match in the Super League after three years was exactly against the team for whom she last competed in China before going to Turkish VakıfBank. Tianjin won the match, valid for the second round, by a 3-0 (25-17, 25-18, 25-19), while Zhu played the first two sets (5 points), not the third. American Destinee Hooker top-scored for Tianjin with 12 points.

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...
