NEW YEAR'S INTERVIEW: Zhu Ting - "My next goal is to be European and Turkish champion"

4034 0

She is one of the most talented and most powerful female volleyball players in the World and WoV Best Female Player of 2016. With only 22 years, she became Olympic winner and MVP of Rio 2016, so we think there is no need to present her any further, because when you say "women's volleyball" you mean Zhu Ting!

  

This summer Zhu Ting has signed for Turkey's VakıfBbank İstanbul and delighted, not only her fans, but also fans from all over Europe with the way she played. Chinese star has accepted to do a New Year's interview for WoV.

Do you miss China?

Yes, I miss it because my family is there"

What do you think about Turkey?

“I think Turkey is a beautiful country. People here are nice."

What do you like to eat in Europe, since food in China is very different?

Actually, I like to eat fish and beef here

Did you learn some Turkish words and is how is your English now?

"I have learned some Turkish numbers and greetings. At the same time, I'm learning also volleyball terms from coaches and teammates while training."

 

For how long do you plan to stay in Europe?

I hope to stay here for about 4 years."

What is the difference between Asian and European volleyball?

"Asian volleyball mostly relies on outside hitters while European volleyball relies on opposites."

Did you expect to win Olympic Games and to be the MVP of the same?

"We didn’t expect to win Olympic Games but we all had the same belief in getting one of the medals. I think that getting a gold medal is much more meaningful than MVP because without the help of my teammates I would not be able to be the MVP."

What is the next goal in your career since you already won Olympics and all we know that the Olympics are the top of  each career.

"My goal is to be the champion of the CEV Champions League and Turkish Superleague."

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
