First of all, do you plan to stay in Italy?

“I’m not thinking about it yet. First I want to evaluate all options then we will see.”

How did Serie A ended up behind Turkish and Russian league?

“Turkish and Russian championships indeed are the top of the volleyball right now. Still with our win in Moscow I think we showed that we also can play on the same level. There are still a lot of young and talented girls playing in the Italian league so im sure that step forward will be made in the future.”

Are China, Japan and Korea a viable career choice?

“It’s a different style of volleyball, it might be interesting and stimulating to play there and learn that style, it can only make me a more complete player.“

Would you consider going to East Asia?

It’s for sure an option for me for the future. I heard great stories from girls who played there. But for the time being, I want to experience playing in top leagues in Europe.”

Little bit of off topic – how in the World did someone tried to steal your car?

“I parked my car for 10 minutes to buy something real quick, when I came outside I couldn’t open my car anymore. I called the garage and they came to try open my car themselves, they also couldn’t and they said in the 10 minutes I was gone my car-lock must have been forced by someone!”

Do you follow football? Will you watch World Championship and cheer for Netherlands?

“I like football but overall I don’t really follow it. Still like every other Dutch person I will watch and cheer for the Netherlands when they play!”

If yes is the answer to #7 who is your favorite football player?

“That will be Robin van Persie of course (just because of his name actually (smiles)”
