I just looked on FIVB site, and now suddenly for quarter finals it says a2/a3 vs b2/b3, do i misunderstand something or there will be drawing of lots for the quarter finals for the second and third ranked teams?

 

Schedule isn't finalized, perhaps ?

yes it seems 2 matches in quarterfinal determine by draw because of betting programs , fivb wants to prevent predictable format, (one of their few good works!)

 

i'm not sure but i guess they did the same for the last 2 olympics

For sure in Beijing and London there was a drawing of lots to determine the quarter finals a2/a3 vs b2/b3.

Probably this time there will be the same procedure.

In what kind of form is Jovana? If she is somewhere close to her form from couple of years ago, I think we can fight for the medal.

She is good form, but Tijana is better and she will be in first team for sure.
