After a difficult success obtained in five sets against Italy, Russia qualified on Saturday night for the final. Today they will be facing Brazil in the final of the 28th Montreux Volley Masters 2013!

  

Since the beginning of the game, both teams put forward their best play and look how to best exploit weaknesses of their opponents. This was for the greatest pleasure of the spectators, treated with a fast and spectacular volleyball.

The first set was taken away by the Russians who knew how to manage key moments to win the first round on a score of 25-23.

In the second set the advantage was this time for the Italians who, managing a slight advance during the entire set, finally took it 21-25.

While the third set seemed acquired to the Italians (22-17), the Russians showed realism and efficiency to transform the advantage in this semi-final and lead 2-1.

The fourth set speaks for itself, as the squadra azzurra clearly dominated it (25-13)!

The tie-break was thus determining for these two magnificent teams: the Russians quickly took three points beforehand in this decisive set, and beside the talented Valentina Diouf (best scorer of the game with 24 points), the Italians never came back, defeated 15-11 in a last exciting set.

Become official FIVB volleyball agent STEP 1: Who can become FIVB volleyball agent?

It is exactly the reason why Volleyball is not developing further. FIVB is demanding a yearly fee. It is not in favor of the players as they have to pay in the end. Reply

WoV BLOG: Is there a space for the new FIVB volleyball rules?

Completely insane. TV wants to know in 99% of the occasions how long will be a volleyball match because they need to offer commercial time for sale. Imagine you sell 45min of commercial time and you have a possibility to produce only 30 minutes? What are you going to say to the company that payed? Sorry, the games were short and we didn't have the possibility to respect our deal? That company will never ever come back and make another contract. And there is a possibility, even to make game around 2 hours, and also to make it different than before. But somebody must think.... Reply

WoV BLOG: Is there a space for the new FIVB volleyball rules?

New rules are a bad for volleyball.
First of all, the sets have less substance, taste and drama. It's like fast food versus eating in a fine restaurant.
Second, since the sets end quickly, once a team falls 3-4 points behind, loses hopes for winning the set, and we have sets results like 15-5 in a game that ends 4-3..
We will see less come-backs, which means less excitement and drama..
Since the sets are short, the beginning of the sets become most important, when a team starts 0-3 even 0-2 immediately time-out is called...This effects the flow of the game..
In the long run, serving will be more important than ever, a more defensive style will become the rule, every coach will try to cut down the mistakes, which will result less risk taking, more defensive, boring style of play..
This means volleyball will become less interesting and surely the fanbase will decline..
