After five rounds of the first stage of the 2021 China Telecom National Championship during which Tianjin (Group A) and Shandong (Group B) dominated with 15 points and 5-0 each, the competition resumed with the second stage consisting of eight teams (the best four from each of the groups) where only one round, which turned to be a qualification for the semi-finals, was played today.

The vice-champions Jiangsu had the toughest job in securing a progression. They trailed 0-2 in sets to Liaoning, who were favorites in the match according to the results from the first stage (4-1), but overturned the course of the encounter into their favor – 3-2. Talented, 19-year-old outside hitter Zhou Yetong highlighted Jiangsu with 32 points, including four aces. Yuan Xinyue set up five blocks, while Ni Feifan made 76% reception (46 digs, two errors, 39% perfect).

We have seen another upset: Shanghai beat Fujian in straight sets. Liu Zhening top-scored the winning side with 18 points. Zhong Hui made 75% reception (16 digs, 50% perfect).

Tianjin and Shandong, the two major favorites for the title, scored easy triumphs against Beijing and Guangdong, respectively, and advanced to the semis.
