BRA W: Fofao uses music to concentrate before games

Fofao always uses music before games to concentrate and to get in the zone. She then reads her teammates' faces. Unilever is in front of the most important match of the season, final against Sollys OSASCO, so Fofao's information will be even more important.



Sometimes I get anxious and isolate myself in my little world. From the hotel to the arena I follow a routine, a list that already worked (laughs). Here I begin to reflect, to get into the mood of the game. I do not like to talk much at this time because I’m concentrating. I have to look at everyone. Their reactions help me. That helps me on the court because I know what I have to say or do to motivate each playerFofao said.

The responsibility is great, and Fofão likes it. At age 43, after a season away, the Olympic champion is hungry for the title. Despite nearly three-decade career, she admits to have a twinge of anxiety before these matches. But everything ends when you hear the first whistle. It’s time to distribute the plays and get the best out of each player.

Gabi has an important position. My biggest concern is to not throw the responsibility on her. She can not take all the responsibility. If she’s OK, I will use her. The most important thing for me is to let everyone feel comfortable. We have 12 players. Gabi is new and we have to give a lot of support. If I am going to feel pressure, imagine how it will be for her?

It will be a very difficult match. There’s no other way. We will not find ease in front of a team that was assembled to be the Superliga champion. But there is no favorite. It’s six against six. It is a unique game, and several factors will count in the decision. As the balance is great, everything needs work, every detail. It will be a battle between teams that know each other wellFofao finished.
