1254 0

Zhana Todorova has ended one more season in Maritza's jersey with a championship gold in Bulgaria.

 

The 22-year old libero has made a short analysis of the season 2018/2019.

Maritza have won the championship title again. Was it more difficult compared to the previous season?

I think It was even easier than in previous years. The hardest thing was to switch between the Champions league and domestic championship matches.“

How would you rate your performances in the season 2018/2019?

We were like a big family and really had so much fun this season. It finished so quickly that we were sad at the end. We didn’t lose a game in our championship. About the Champions league matches, I’m a little bit disappointed because we didn’t win the first match with Bezier in France.“

Maritza played the CEV Champions League group stage. What are your impressions after playing the games against Vakifbank?

I always tell that CL matches are my favorite and I see how the team gives more than 100 percent in each match. It is an irreplaceable experience for our team to participate in this tournament. Vakifbank are one of the best teams in the world. Not only they have such great players and staff but the quality of organization and professionalism in each level.“

The national season is approaching - Do you think Bulgaria is able to achieve the goals?

In my dreams, I see Bulgaria making the final six of the VNL, but we have to walk our way step by step. The teams we are going to face are playing at a very high level and we have to play without pressure, to gain valuable experience and self-confidence and keep faith in our direction. I think the firlt goal is to remain in VNL.“

What are your plans for the season 2019/2020?

I have time to think about that. First thing is to stay without injuries.“

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.

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

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
