Zenit Kazan's trio Mikhailov (19 points), Anderson (16 points) and Ngapeth (15 points) created the first win in the semifinal series against Fakel Noviy Urengoy. The away side was close to tie the score after performing well in the second set, however,  they didn't manage to do it, letting Zenit double the lead in sets. 

In the third, Fakel couldn't do anything to stop the reigning champions and they let them win the first game.

Kuzbass Kemerevo have also scored a 3-0 win over Zenit ST. Petersburg. Even though it was a 3-0 win, the home side had many difficulties, especially in the second and the third set.

Yaroslav Podlesnikh was the top scorer in Kuzbass with 16, while Georg Grozer had 17 points.

ITA M: Serbian Stanković in Modena, won’t compete as foreigner

This is just the proof how long are promises honored in professional volleyball. Last year Lube said that Stankovic, belowed El Capetano, will be coming back next year when he obtain Italian citizenship, he's been with Lube for 10 years, and we want him back. Reply

RUS W: Karpol enters Guinness World Records!

Watching Nikolay Karpol and Yevgeni Trefilov (handball, head coach of the Russia women's national team) during the timeouts always made me feel sorry for these girls and was amusing at the same time. They both created the stereotypical image of a typical Russian coach – a big guy, always unsatisfied and yelling at everyone :) Still they both achieved a lot and it cannot be denied. Reply

Sport Bond in Italian Volleyball (Part 1)

This is very similar to 'foundation rights' for football clubs around the world, well except for the US. In football, Jimmy plays for Club X from age 14 to 17. Then he jumps to SuperClub Y for free. Two years at Super Club Y, Giant Massive Club AA comes in and buys his contract from Super Club Y for $10,000,000!

Super Club Y would have to give a portion of the fee to Club X because of Foundation Rights. These rights stay with the player till age 23 (if I remember correctly from my days working in football).

Volleyball has enough issues with budgets and players making money, that there should be hinderance to player movement after age 18 or maybe 21. Just pay the club $10k per season trained or something like that. (Note- this is top of my head thinking and I am not privy to budgets for players).
