EXCLUSIVE, Salvador Hidalgo for WoV - "We can't predict the future, but you will be surprised"

2659 0

Salvador Hidalgo. This is the name that was used so many times in a previous period! Do you know why?

 

Cuban player, born in Russia, with German citizenship has been in the spotlight, especially after having monster performances in Jastrzebski's victories over two powerhouses Asseco Resovia and PGE Skra Belchatow.

In the last two games, you beat two powerhouses, Resovia and Skra! Firstly you scored 27 and then 31. What’s your secret for having such amazing performances?

Devotion, the desire always to give the best, passion, daily hard work and the team chemistry. But I have a special "ingredient" to add to all this and that is my father as a mental advisor. All this has a big influence in my performance and like this I can share some energy with the team also.”

What are Jastrzebski’s goals for this season?

The goal of every team is always to win the championship , no questions asked, but we know that we are playing in one of the best leagues in the world and we want to fight to be in the best 4 teams and see what can happen in the play-offs.”

Do you think that you can make a huge surprise at the end of the season in Plusliga?

We can't predict the future but, we will keep the hard work and the good vibes in the team and we will see where we will find our team at the end of the season but for the moment things are going in the good direction for us. That's why surprises are called surprises … In the end you will be surprised,” answers Hidalgo with a huge smile.

You played in many worldwide leagues, how would you rate Plusliga?

For me the Plusliga is the best league in which I ever played... Because in this league you have to play every match at 120%, there are so many volleyball "super stars" and "super teams" in PlusLiga. They have also all this new volleyball technologies, incredible fans, the tickets are sold out almost every match and that's a big challenge.”

How do you feel in Poland?

How do I feel? I feel great. I just know that I am blessed to be here and have so many people showing me appreciation and admiration at every game,” says Salvador Hidalgo at the end of the interview for WorldofVolley.

This tournament will be such a waste of time if that new format will be introduced, eliminating the rewards for the teams that worked hard for it like Belgium and Slovenia. Reply

Fans, which volleyball rules you would change if you were in charge?

It's nice to see players serve the ball at 60+mph , but with it comes with awful lot of service errors -- let alone serve error on float serve. Perhaps teams have taken the value of this part of the game very lightly. I think there needs to some sort of penalty for this. Thinking similar to that of basketball whenever a team gets certain amount of service error, there must be a point given to the opposing team. An alternative penalty would be to deduct a point from the team at fault. Reply
