4398 0

Dominika Sobolska has talked with WorldofVolley about the season in a jersey of Canakkale.


The Turkish team didn't have a good season but Dominika Sobolska seems to be a bright spot of this team, since she was one of the best blockers in the league.

How would you rate the season in Canakkale?

“Of course, we had other ambitions and goals before the season. We couldn’t make it.”

Are you satisfied with your personal performances and are there some segments you need to work on during summer?

It’s hard to be satisfied personally when the team doesn’t win. Sure, I was a little happy to be one of the top blockers in the league. In my opinion, there’s always room for improvements. But for sure this season taught me a lot and I’m happy that I worked with Dragan Nesic.”

It was your first season in Turkey. How would you describe it?

When I decided to go to Turkey I didn’t exactly know what to expect. The first half of the season I was the only foreigner in the team. But the way the girls and club welcomed me was great. I could count on my teammates in all situations, they were so open and made me feel like a member of their family. In general, Canakkale is a really nice place, the people are always friendly and are trying to speak with me. For sure I will leave Canakkale with a little pain in my heart.”

Since you played in Poland, Italy and Turkey, which one is the strongest league in your opinion?

In my opinion, Poland’s women league needs some change. The level isn’t as high as before. The Champions League also confirms this. The leagues in Turkey and Italy are different. It’s hard to say which one is stronger, for sure the Italian league has more equal teams.”

Which things from Poland you missed the most while being in Turkey?

“The food, of course. Turkish cuisine is so different from the Polish one.”

What are your plans for the upcoming summer?

I will go to the Belgian national team this summer. But luckily, I will also have some time to rest and spend some time with my family and friends.”

Any plans for 2019/2020 season?

No concrete plans yet. Let’s see what the future will bring, my agent Tunc Afsar takes care about it” says Dominika Sobolska for WorldofVolley.

FIVB releases new men’s and women’s world rankings

VNL must be an event that helps new players gain experience so that they can later join their country's first team. Serbia has always participated with its 2nd or 3rd team. The big tournaments are the Olympics Games, the World Championships and the continental championships. No one remembers who won the vnl. Ask a player to answer please. All for money fivb!!! Reply

Serbian women had poor results in 2019 vnl (5W-10L) which has cost them to drop the 6th place.

Turkish women had 11W-4L in 2019 vnl. And beat China in final round though later lost to them in semifinal, it's still plus for them because you win more points defeating an opponent above you but lose less points when you are defeated.

This is more laughable :) In 2017 turkey was the 12th country in old ranking list
behind the 11th argentina.Then the turks played eurovolley 2017 semifinal (took
bronze) and then vnl 2018 final, vnl 2019 semifinal, eurovolley 2019 final and won
the 2020 european olympic qualification tournament. After all of these,they were
still the 12th team behind the 11th argentina.:D:D:D

Of course the new rankings are more realistic and fairer,I think,but plz note they are not to tell which NT is stronger but to reflect potentials of countries by taking all their performances in a time span into account.

Well,serbia,world and european champ,but has no vnl / world cup medal so far,
why,if they are so mighty? Ok , we all know/guess why, but the ranking system don't pay attention why and it shouldn't for a healty evaluation of serbia's potential.

I also accept serbia's ideal line-up is presently the strongest NT,but this issue is something different. Reply
