Eczacıbaşı VitrA defeated Nilüfer Belediyespor at home by a 3-1 (25-16, 16-25, 25-18, 25-14) in the second round of the 2019/20 Turkish Women’s Volleyball Championship regular season.


Unlike the first-round match against Beylikdüzü Voleybol İhtisas, the head coach of Eczacıbaşı VitrA, Marco Aurélio Motta, used all weapons that he has at disposal, which means that stars like Bošković, Kim and Gibbemeyer made their debuts in the 2019/20 Vestel Venus Sultanlar Ligi. The Brazilian expert even tried a little experiment by moving Melis Durul from an opposite to the outside hitter’s position. Serbian Tijana Bošković was the top scorer of the game with 23 points (4 kill blocks), while Beyza Arıcı made 5 kill blocks. As for Nilüfer, Belgian Hélène Rousseaux scored 14 points.

The Greek newcomer to Galatasaray HDI Sigorta from Lardini Filottrano (Italy), Anthi Vasilantonaki, led her team to a straight-set win against Karayolları.

Despite playing without two very important players like Robinson and Vargas (she was in protocol unlike the first round match), Fenerbahçe Opet swept Beşiktaş. Recall that Vargas’ Instagram was, allegedly, hacked this summer and those who took over her profile wrote that she will no longer wear the jersey of the “Yellow Angels”.

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...
