Shanghai will remain without their best player for a decisive semifinal game of the 2019/20 Chinese Women’s Volleyball Championship playoffs!


As iVolley Magazine reported, German opposite hitter Louisa Lippmann has embarked for Europe to join her national team that will play the continental Olympic qualification in Apeldoorn, the Netherlands. This puts her club, Shanghai, in trouble because it will have to play Game 3 of the 2019/20 Super League playoff semifinals against Guangdong, tomorrow, without her.

The same source said the Chinese club wasn’t aware of this commitment, which would take away the most prolific player of the championship (285 points) during playoffs, when it registered her at the beginning of the season.

100% support Lippmann. Shanghai (club/administration)and the league had to know this was a possibility, just like every other league in the world who employs players vying for the Tokyo Qualifers.

Shanghai can't blame her. Country first, just like Zhu Ting leaving Vakifbank.

One of, if not the best match ever. Absolutely brilliant play by both sides. Fantastic Final. Reply

ITALIAN CUP M: Trentino drop 2-0 in sets, Lube become first finalists

Trentino really started fast in set 1 and 2 and looked really smooth but Lube's experience and identity showed through when it counted. Bruno found the hot spikers at the right time and Simone Gianellli didnt feed the ball enough to his middles and Russell who hit .680 and zero errors. Both Trentino's other pins received more sets and far lower scoring percentages. Doesn't look like Kovacevic will be back this year to form so the coaches need to be smarter.

Hoping the Perugia/Modena match is as good. Reply
