When you think China will outplay Korea 3 sets to nil, Korea stun them with great serve and quality defense. I was hoping more from the Chinese reception and out of system attacks.

Its similar with Japan, they played so well and 2 losses so far. Otherwise, China is in main draw anyway (Pool A), even if they lost.

ITA M: Fantastic four ready to battle for Scudetto!

#1 This is going to be a tremendous year for the Italian League. Every team has made moves to improve throughout the league.
#2 The top 4 are so close that it would not be wise to bet money.
#3 Depth and Roster managment may be the determining factor this year. It that happens , Lube and Perugia are in trouble with so much $ invested in such a few.
#4 I think the Super Coppa was a predictor to the Finals of the Scudetto. Modena and Trentino will upend Lube and Perugia. Reply
