They were simply the best and the final match was just an icing on the cake. Netherlands defeated Poland in straight sets in Lublin – 3-0 (25:19, 25:19, 25:16) and wrapped up a fantastic year in Grand Prix 2015.
Recall that the Orange squad finished the first phase with all 6 wins, while then they celebrated both in the semifinal and in the final without losing a single set! Amazing!
Despite having the crowd against them in the final, Netherlands were simply too good for Poland. Lonneke Sloetjes was once again fantastic in attack. She scored 19 points, while Anne Buijs added 16. Katarzyina Zarolisnka tried to answer on the other side but her 12 points were not enough for Poland.
Therefore, Netherlands won the Group 2 and from the next year they will play in Group 1, among the best teams from the world.
