DAY 09 SUMMARY

 

:GER GERMANY 3-1 :DOM DOMINICAN REPUBLIC
GetImage.asmx?No=75378&type=Press&width=920&height=588&stretch=uniformtofill

 

Bangkok, Thailand, May 31, 2018 - Louisa Lippmann produced another dominant display to give Germany their second win in 24 hours at the women's FIVB Volleyball Nations League on Thursday with a 3-1 (25-22, 25-15, 21-25, 25-12) victory against the Dominican Republic.

 
Lippmann followed up her 22-point haul against Thailand in Wednesday's five-set thriller with a game-high 29 points against the Dominican Republic as Germany made it back-to-back wins in Pool 11 after losing their previous six matches in the tournament.
 
Lippmann's latest big tally included 25 spikes from just 39 attempts, lifting her overall points total for the competition to 177, second only to Poland's Malwina Smarzek.
 
With Lippmann so controlling at the net, none of the other German players reached double figures although Jennifer Geerties and Lena Stigrot each finished with nine and the captain Maren Fromm got seven.
 
Brayelin Martinez once again led the way for the Dominican Republic. Fourth in the overall best scorers' list heading into the match, she collected 15 kills and a block to add another 16 points to her total.
 
The powerful serving Yonkaira Pena racked up eight points, as did Jineiry Martinez as the 'Queens of the Caribbean' dropped to 2-7 in the inaugural VNL.
 
Germany, who improved to 3-6, overturned a five-point deficit to win the first set.
 
The Dominican Republic dominated the early exchanges but the Europeans drew level at 20-20 then took the lead with a pin-point ace from Lippmann that landed in the corner of the back court.
 
Germany got to set point when Martinez was ruled to have touched the net after a winning block then they clinched the opener when Pena was unable to return a blistering serve from Marie Scholzel.
 
Germany dominated the second set from the outset, penetrating the Dominican Republic defence to open up a big lead that they never relinquished, sealing the set when Lippmann and Lisa Grunding combined for a double block.
 
The Dominican Republic rebounded strongly to win the third set, twice opening up six-point leads, before Martinez followed up a neat dink with an unreturnable spike to force a fourth set after one of Pena's serve was clocked at over 100 kilometres per hour.
 
But the fourth set was all one-way traffic for Germany, who wrapped up the win on a thunderous spike from Geerties.
 
The Dominican Republic travels to the Netherlands next week to join the Dutch, Serbia and Italy in Pool 13 while Germany moves to Bydgoszcz to play Pool 16 hosts Poland as well as Argentina and Belgium.
 
:JPN JAPAN 3-0 :ARG ARGENTINA 
 
GetImage.asmx?No=75382&type=Press&width=920&height=588&stretch=uniformtofill
 
Hong Kong, China, May 31, 2018 - Wing spikers Ai Kurogo and Risa Shinnabe shared the spoils with 11 points each on Thursday night, driving Japan to a comprehensive 3-0 (25-16, 25-21, 25-21) victory over Argentina in women's third-round action at the 2018 FIVB Volleyball Nations League.
 
Kurogo drove home a team-leading nine spikes for a Japanese team who never really looked under too much pressure as they took their run at the Hong Kong Coliseum this week to 2-1. She was withdrawn from action after two sets as Japan look to the next round and to their hopes of qualifying for the finals of the inaugural VNL.
 
 
The 19-year-old had similarly been a force to be reckoned with the night before in a loss to the world number one Chinese with a team-leading 17 points - all from spikes - and the Hong Kong crowd have quickly taken Kurogo to heart due to her exploits this week.
 
On Thursday night they were also pretty impressed with the performance of Shinnabe, too, as the 28-year-old veteran powered Japan on their way to the win.
 
The bright spark for Argentina has been the form of wing spiker Anahi Tosi, whose team-leading eight points on Thursday night took her total in the 2018 VNL so far to 88 points.
 
The South Americans continue to play with spirit and enthusiasm despite a wretched run that has so far kept them as the only team in the VNL to have not yet won a match - and they've not won a set since their 3-1 loss to the Netherlands on May 16.
 
The Japanese had battled admirably on opening night in Hong Kong in overcoming Italy 3-2 but then found Olympic and world champions China too hot to handle in a 3-0 loss on Wednesday.
 
The positives coach Kumi Nakada can take from the third round include Kurogo's stellar form and their swarming style of volleyball as the world number six ranked team look to play their way into VNL finals contention.
 
Two wins out of three matches in Hong Kong is a solid return for the Japanese, considering the only loss came at the hands of tournament favourites China. Next up for them as the inaugural VNL moves into its fourth round will be a trip to Nakhon Ratchasrima to face hosts Thailand along with Turkey and South Korea.
 
The South Americans meanwhile now have four days to regroup under the guidance of coach Guillermo Orduna before the fourth round in Bydgoszcz pits them against Belgium, Germany and hosts Poland from June 5.

Bangkok, Thailand, May 31, 2018 - Leading by example with another stellar all-round performance, Jordan Larson guided the seemingly unstoppable United States to a comprehensive 3-0 (25-10, 25-22, 25-16) victory over Thailand in the women's FIVB Volleyball Nations League on Thursday.
 
With USA's leading pointscorer Michelle Bartsch-Hackley sitting out the match, Larson took up the role of the main attacking weapon, finishing with a game-high 15 points, comprising nine spikes from 18 attempts, as well as two blocks and four service winners.
 
Outside hitter Kimberly Hill was also in great form, particularly in the first two sets, racking up 13 kills as the reigning world champions posted their seventh consecutive straight-sets win to consolidate their lead at the top of the competition standings.
 
Outgunned at the start, Thailand improved as the match wore on, pushing the Americans in the second set and leading midway through their third before running out of steam, just 24 hours after they were involved in a marathon five-set defeat to Germany.
 
None of the Thai players managed to reach double figures although Onuma Sittirak led the way with eight after skipping the first set as the home crowd created a carnival atmosphere inside the stadium as they cheered every point and desperate save from the host-nation's team.
 
Wilavan Apinyapong and Ajcharaporn Kongyot, finished with seven points each, while Larson took her series total to 90 points and was well supported by her team mates as four American players reached double figures.
 
Hill, who has 89 points in total, clinched the first and second sets with powerful spikes that proved too much for the Thai defence.
 
Andrea Drews finished with 12 points while Lauren Gibbemeyer got 10 and Foluke Akinradewores, the most-capped player on the American roster, chipped in with eight.
 
With the win, the US improved to 8-1 in the competition. Ranked number two in the world, they head to Jiangmen next week to join China, Brazil and Russia in Pool 14.
 
Thailand, who dropped to 2-7 after a third straight loss in Bangkok, switch to Nakhon Ratchasima next week to host Japan, South Korea and Turkey in Pool 15.

 
:ITA Italy 3-1 :CHN China 
 
GetImage.asmx?No=75387&type=Press&width=920&height=588&stretch=uniformtofill
 
 
Hong Kong, China, May 31, 2018 - Teenage star Paola Egonu stole the show - delivering a match-high 13 points - as Italy upset China 3-1 (25-18, 25-14, 16-25, 25-18) in third-round action at the 2018 FIVB Volleyball Nations League on Thursday. 

The 19-year-old opposite spiker just kept coming up big for the Italians, with 12 spikes from 29 attempts, and she continued to enjoy every single moment of it with wild cries as every point was made. 

Egonu's partnership with wing spiker Miryam Sylla - responsible for 11 points of her own - was just too much for China and the scenes of celebration afterwards showed just how much toppling the world number one side meant to the seventh-ranked Italy.

A series of huge rallies throughout the match had electrified fans inside the Hong Kong Coliseum, as had every single move China's captain Zhu Ting made. 

The 23-year-old wing spiker is treated liked a rock star in these parts and was again the leading force for her team, with a team leading points, despite spending time on the sidelines. Opposite spiker Yang Fangxu also made her presence felt with seven points. 

But the night belonged to Italy, who leave Hong Kong now with a record of 4-5 after three rounds of the VNL - and with a whole lot of hope.

The form book had revealed some promising signs for the Italians coming in to the match. In last year's FIVB Volleyball World Grand Prix they'd had two wins over China on their own march to second place behind Brazil. They also held a 9-8 all-time lead when it came to matches played on Chinese soil. Make that a round 10. 

Italy coach Davide Mazzanti certainly looked like he knew that form as he patrolled the side of the court urging his charges on. It worked a treat early with Egonu and Sylla racing into double figures. For her part, China coach Lang Ping has not been afraid of calling on the services of the younger members of her squad so far in the tournament, safe in the knowledge that as hosts her team have already qualified for the finals. 

So it was again on Thursday with 18-year-old opposite spiker Li Yingying substituted in right when the tension was palpable in the first set. The teenager acquitted herself admirably, with three big spikes, before making way for more experienced heads but her star will no doubt continue to rise. 

China look now to rebound as they travel north to Jiangmen for round four from June 5 against Brazil, USA and Russia. Italy will meanwhile head to Rotterdam and face Serbia, the Dominican Republic and hosts the Netherlands.
 
:POL POLAND 3-0 :KOR SOUTH KOREA 
 
GetImage.asmx?No=75389&type=Press&width=920&height=588&stretch=uniformtofill
 
Apeldoorn, Netherlands, May 31, 2018 - Malwina Smarzek was the key figure again for Poland as they thrashed South Korea in straight sets (25-11, 25-15, 25-16) for their first victory in 5 matches in the FIVB women's Nations League.  
 
The Poles knew they had to win to avoid matching their unwanted run of 5 straight world-level defeats from the 2014 World Grand Prix, and another defeat never looked likely as they came tearing out of the blocks to produce a classy performance that they had been threatening for a while. In a surprisingly one-sided contest, they simply had too much power with their defence solid throughout against a woeful South Korea side who looked disinterested and off the pace. 
 
Poland may have started the day 14th in the Nations League table, but they performed valiantly in straight-sets defeats to the Netherlands and Brazil this week - notching at least 20 points in every set - and things finally clicked as they recorded just their 3rd win in 9 in the tournament to move up to 11th. Malwina Smarzek began the day as the competition's top scorer with 192 and she once again led the scoring charts in Apeldoorn with 19. Agnieszka Kakolewska chipped in with 13 and was a potent blocker throughout, while Marlena Plesnierowicz - who won 4 points on serve - and Natalia Medrzyk (8 points) also had strong games.  
 
South Korea were utterly outclassed against the host nation, Netherlands, on Wednesday, and they weren't at the races for the second day running as they produced arguably their worst performance of the campaign to slump to a 4th straight defeat. In a game of few bright spots for the Asian team, Jaeyeong Lee top scored with 11 points, while Jeongah Park (10) also reached double figures. But South Korea are now 4 &5 after a dreadful week in Apeldoorn. 
 
The Poles were realistically out of Final Round contention prior to this match, but they came firing out of the traps with some powerful play. Kakolewska's prowess at the net put the Poles 5-2 in front. Jacek Nawrocki's girls had never won in the Netherlands before in 5 attempts but they were beginning to sense that this would be their day. A Smarzek ace made it 13-7 and the Koreans managed to reduce the gap to 5 when Jaeyeong Lee's inch-perfect spike landed inside the court. But that was to be South Korea's penultimate point of the set as the Poles strode clear with their menacing power proving too much. Poland eventually cruised to the set 25-11 with South Korea coach Cha Hae-won looking forlorn on the sidelines.  
 
The Koreans, who trail the head-to-head record 10-6 but had beaten Poland twice in 3 attempts at the 2017 World Grand Prix, were all over the place in this contest. Plesnierowicz's ace started proceedings for the Europeans in the 2nd set and they led 8-3 at the first technical timeout with Smarzek and Kakolewska too hot to handle. South Korea were making life far too easy for a side as tall and threatening as Poland and the giant figure of Zuzanna Efemienko had a simple tap in to make it 14-8. Errors continued to creep in among the Koreans with a basic lack of communication handing the Poles point after point, and they eventually took the set with ease to move 2 clear after only 50 minutes. 
 
South Korea needed a big response and they started to play with a little more freedom in the 3rd set. Eunjin Park made it 2-0 but back-to-back wayward spikes brought Poland level at 5-5. Jeongah Park made sure that the Koreans took a 2-point lead into the first technical timeout, but from then on it was all downhill for the Asian side. The Poles - with Plesnierowicz serving magnificently and Smarzek continuing to bury spikes - scored 12 of the next 13 points as South Korean heads wilted. Emilia Mucha's well-placed spike brought the Poles into the 20s after a challenge and Kakolewska's delicate touch brought up match point. Despite having 4 of them saved, Poland weren't to be denied with Efemienko thundering down a spike to seal the set 25-16 and a very impressive victory. It's on to home comforts now for the Poles who entertain Argentina, Germany and Belgium in Bydgoszcz in week 4. 
 
:RUS RUSSIA 3-1 :BEL BELGIUM 
 
GetImage.asmx?No=75392&type=Press&width=920&height=588&stretch=uniformtofill
 
Kraljevo, Serbia, May 31, 2018 – Irina Voronkova was once again the driving force behind Russia’s victory in the FIVB Volleyball Nations League, as her team mastered a 3-1 (25-21, 25-20, 23-25, 25-18) defeat of Belgium on Thursday.
 
Voronkova set the pace for the most part of the match in Kraljevo, contributing a great 23 points, including four stuff blocks and two aces, to Russia’s tally.
 
202-cm-tall Daria Malygina and middle blocker Angelina Lazarenko also had their solid contribution of 16 and 13 points, respectively.
 
Belgium put on a great effort and even put an end to their straight-set losing streak with Britt Herbots and Kaja Grobelna leading the way with 14 points each.
 
Russia stayed in control through the most part of the game, but a seven-point series in the third set gave the Belgians the courage to persevere for the set win. The victory was sixth for Russia since the start of the competition, while Belgium’s losing streak was extended to six games in a row.
 
A high-level all-round Russian team effort in the first set was highlighted by Angelina Lazarenko and Daria Malygina, delivering a couple of aces and three spike points each. The main reason Belgium did not fall far behind were the Russian mistakes, which produced more than half of the opponents’ 21 points in the set.
 
Hititng a 105.5 km/h pipe shot and finishing a 32.5-second mega rally with a kill block early in the second set got Irina Voronkova really fired up for the rest of the set and leading her team in overpowering Belgium. However, Britt Herbots and Kaja Grobelna were also on fire in offence on the other side of the net, keeping Belgium close behind. Their team’s efforts were crowned by a great hit through the middle, followed by a stuff block, for two consecutive points from Marlies Janssens, which tied the score at 15-15. Voronkova aced for 17-15 and finished another long spectacular rally with a back-row hit for 21-16 to spin Russia into another momentum that led to a 25-20 win.
 
Voronkova continued to fuel that momentum into the third set, as Russia gained a speedy 5-1 advantage. However, the Belgians had no intention of giving up just yet. They went on a seven-point run with Nathalie Lemmens on serving duty and broke away with a 12-7 lead. Voronkova exploded again with a smashing five spiking points in a row to level it at 13-13, but even this did not break Belgium. The young squad of coach Gert Vande Broek stepped up their attacking efforts with Celine Van Gestel leading the way. Substitute Laure Flament put two balls on the floor to bring her team to a triple set point. Finally, Grobelna fired from the back row to close the set at 25-23.
 
At 13-11 Belgium’s way in the fourth set, Russia woke up for a nine-point run, highlighted by three consecutive precision-placed aces by Ekaterina Lyubushkina. This was a blow the Belgians could never recover from. Great kill block by setter Tatiana Romanova ended the match at 25-18, fixing the Russian win.
 
Next week, Russia will travel to Jiangmen to measure up against giants Brazil, USA and hosts China, while the Belgian team will be in the company of Argentina, Germany and the home squad of Poland in Bydgoszcz.
 
:BRA BRAZIL 3-1 :NED NETHERLANDS
 
 
GetImage.asmx?No=75395&type=Press&width=920&height=588&stretch=uniformtofill
 
Apeldoorn, Netherlands, May 31, 2018 - Tandara Caixeta took centre stage again as Brazil earned a pulsating 4-set victory 3-1 (25-23, 26-24, 13-25, 25-22) over the Netherlands in the women's FIVB Volleyball Nations League in front of a sell-out Dutch crowd. 
 
Tandara's class and power shone through once again as she contributed 31 points to take her tally in Apeldoorn to 85 in 3 matches, but it was the South Americans' fabled defence - with Adenizia da Silva the chief tormentor with 3 block points alongside Tandara - that won them the game against tough opposition. 
 
The Netherlands certainly played their part in a match of high quality - the 3rd set a particular highlight - but despite their spike threats Lonneke Sloetjes and Anne Buijs contributing 19 points apiece, the Dutch attack was held at bay frequently in the face of alert Brazilian defence.  
 
The hosts were edged out in 2 tight opening sets but hit peak form in the 3rd to give themselves a lifeline. The visitors though did an extraordinary job to stem the Dutch tide as they won the big points in the big moments to win the crucial 4th set and wrap up victory.  
 
Brazil win battle of the titans 
With both sides coming into this one on the back of 7 wins from 8 games in the Nations League, this was a titanic clash between 2 of the best sides in women's volleyball. Brazil's 8th straight win may not mean much in the grand scheme of things with both sides on course for the Final Round, but there's no doubt this will be a psychological blow for the Dutch as Brazil served notice of their heavyweight credentials with a brilliant victory inside the hostile Omnisport Apeldoorn. 
 
Brazil, winners of 4 of the previous 5 World Grand Prix's, are wise old campaigners with the side having won major competitions on a regular basis, and it was their extra knowhow and ability to play under pressure that got them over the line in this match. 
 
In sets 1 and 2, Brazil were 5 and 3 points behind respectively, yet played with cohesion and quality to turn both sets around in their favour when many teams would've folded.  
 
As for the Netherlands and their coach Jamie Morrison, this result is far from a calamity with the hosts still firmly entrenched in the top 6, but this is the 2nd time they've failed to pick up a point in a Nations League match against 2 of the best sides - USA and Brazil.  
 
Brazilian defence shines bright 
Jose Roberto Guimaraes' women are capable of playing an all-court game with Tandara and Amanda Francisco (10 points) extremely potent spike specialists, but it's Brazil's outstanding defence that provides the bedrock and allows these superb talents to prosper. 
Suelen Pinto is arguably the best libero in the Nations League and her incredible reflexes were on show again here - her superhuman pick-up on match point dropped over the Dutch net to seal the victory for Brazil.  
 
Captain Roberta Ratzke also falls into the underrated category. The setter was at her premium best - as a server and in open court - as she provided the perfect length and height to her sets with the likes of Tandara and Amanda often finishing off Roberta's fine approach work. 
 
The Brazilians are also the best blocking nation in the competition - Ana Beatriz and Adenizia are ranked 1st and 4th respectively in terms of average blocks per set - and their tenacity at the net was too much in Apeldoorn as they frustrated the hosts' sizzling attack.  
 
Dutch hoodoo v Brazil goes on 
The Netherlands have now won only once against Brazil - at the 2007 World Grand Prix - in 24 meetings, but they remain a threat against any side with Sloetjes, Buijs and Maret Balkestein (11 points) all producing strong individual performances.  
 
Star of the show 
Adenizia's excellence as a blocker yielded 3 points in a personal haul of 9, but Tandara's 31-point haul, featuring 26 spikes from 49 attempts and 3 block points, was the difference between 2 evenly-balanced teams. Without Tandara, Brazil may have been on the losing side.
 
:SRB SERBIA 3-2 :TUR TURKEY  
 
 
GetImage.asmx?No=75396&type=Press&width=920&height=588&stretch=uniformtofill
 
Kraljevo, Serbia, May 31, 2018 – Two fantastic spikers, Tijana Boskovic and Meryem Boz, led their teams in an epic five-set race for a precious FIVB Volleyball Nations League win. In a rollercoaster clash in Kraljevo on Thursday evening, hosts Serbia snatched a 3-2 (25-20, 22-25, 18-25, 25-23, 15-12) win over a fighting Turkey.
 
The young Serbian star Boskovic outscored her Turkish counterpart to become the game’s top pointmaker with 26, including four stuff blocks and the hammer that ended the match in the tie-breaker.
 
Outside hitter Brankica Mihajlovic and middle blocker and captain Milena Rasic added their high-level performances, as well as 16 points each as a valuable contribution to the Serbian victory.
 
Meryem Boz scored 20 times for Turkey, while middle blockers Eda Erdem Dundar and Zehra Gunes also went deep into the double digits with 15 and 14 points, respectively.
 
With the whole-hearted support of the fans in Kraljevo, Serbia won the first set, but allowed a Turkish takeover in the next two. As the big drama unfolded, the Serbs tied it in the fourth to prompt a decider. The tie-breaker was a mini rollercoaster in itself, with the home side eventually emerging on top with their eighth victory in hand. 
 
With Boz on fire, Turkey managed to break away with a three-point lead twice in the first half of the fifth set and twice did the host team manage to draw level. A 103.1 km/h power shot by Boskovic was the momentum changer, after which she took destiny in her own hands. With a monster block she gave Serbia a 12-10 lead, and then hammered two of the remaining three points to celebrate victorious with a 15-12 win.
 
But Tijana Boskovic’s performance was quite memorable throughout the match. Her 100.9 km/h blasting serve to give Serbia a three-point lead in the first set was one of the highlights early in the match. She was a big part of that seven-point run, which flipped the advantage in the second set to a 20-18 Serbian lead, before the incredible five in a row, with which Turkey sprinted to a 25-22 finish to regain the momentum.
 
A monster of a single block by Boskovic put the stop to a six-point Turkish run, which gave the home team a late scare in the fourth set, and it was Boskovic again, whose power shot off the block brought Serbia to a quadruple set point – 24-20.
 
On the other side of the net, Meryam Boz did her best to be a good match for Boskovic and delivered in key moments of the match to keep Turkey in contention. Her successful spike set Turkey off on a four-point series, the first of two big comebacks for the team in the second set, in which she also chipped in with an ace.
 
Another ace of hers gave Turkey a three-point lead early into the third set. A superb pipe shot by Boz for 20-15 was the start of a five-point run, which made the team unreachable at the end of the set. In set 4, she hammered an ace and another back-row hit for two consecutive Turkish points, trying to keep the team alive in the set.
 
Boz’s attacks were instrumental in Turkey’s strong start of the tie-breaker, as she scored four of her team’s first seven points on the way to an 8-5 lead.
 
It was not to be. Even in an epic hard-fought match like this one there is only one winner, and the victory was destined for Boskovic and her teammates, who went into a well-deserved celebration with “Srbija! Srbija!” echoing from the stands...
 
Turkey’s next trip is to meet up with three Asian sides – Japan, Korea and hosts Thailand – from June 5 through 7 in Nakhon Ratchasrima. Serbia will stay in Europe, but will move to Rotterdam, where the Netherlands will also host the Dominican Republic and Italy.
