SER: Brankica first time in preparation with women's national team of Serbia; Dream came true

Author: Sinisa Stojmenovic

A few years ago Brankica Mihajlovic said that the jersey of Serbia is her biggest wish. A few days ago it came true. She recently visited Belgrade and received good news that the World Federation allowed her to play for the national team of Serbia.

 

“I was very happy when I heard the news and could not believe. I expected that to happen, but not until the next year. However, people from the Volleyball Council managed to do me a favor earlier and I am grateful to them. I am very glad for becoming the member of the team that is the European champion" says Brankica still under the impression. "I cannot wait, moreover, I am a little bit scared, but in the positive sense. That is something new, beautiful and like always, I have big expectations."

It is expected from Brankica to get used to the team and that with her qualities in attack she will contribute to the team to get good results.

"I will help as much as I can. I know that the Olympic Games are the priority and I also know that there is the place for our national team. I hope that I will as soon as possible show everything that I know playing for the Serbian team."

Maybe that will happen in Japan, where the blue players will travel in the middle of the next week. There is possibiliy that Brankica will play the first matches at the international qualifications.

“There will be many good national teams, but I think that Serbia has quality. If we stay in good physical condition, it will not be difficult to get the visa for the Olympic Games. Once again it turned out that dreams can become reality."

Nice Words: When Rezende praises

For the first time Brankca drew the attention to herself when she was playing for Volero in the first season. During the traditional New Year’s tournament in Basel, she was noticed by the well-known expert, according to many the best in the world, Bernard Rezende. At that occasion, the coach of the Brazilian men’s national team complimented her and predicted excellent future and it seems that he was right.

Wishes: London crown of year

This year was one of the most interesting in Brankica's life. After playing half a season in Zurich, where she also played during the last two years, Brankica moved to Korea and reached the semifinal of playoff. Recently she has signed the contract with Cannes. “Everything seemed almost incredible. If I join the team in Japan, it will be my first time in this country. If we manage to provide the placement there, London would be the crown of the year."

Old company: Former and future

Brankica will not be the “stranger” in the preparation, because she knows the “company from Zurich”, her ex-teaammaes, Tijana Malesevic, Nadja Ninkovic and Bojana Zivkovic. "There are also Ana Antonijevic and Milena Rasic from Cannes, my future teammates."

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..
