After the bad injury of the left knee during the second set of the third final match against Igor Novara, Raphaela Folie will do some more tests.


After the injury, she immediately left the court but stayed at the match until the end and celebrated with Imoco the important victory. 

In the next few days, Raphaela will have a series of the instrumental examinations to assess the extent of the injury. After that, the medical staff will give the diagnoses and the recovery time of the Imoco’s middle blocker.

One thing is certain, she will not play for the Scudetto and for her the season is over.

Lately, volleyball players generally get a knee injury. See who else got injured this season.

I don't like the comment that Balkestein-Grothues underperformed! We all know she is there to receive and defend. As you said: 0 aces for Brazil, so she did a great job! Aswell did Schoot, who was almost perfect in receive and defence! Reply

WC 2019 W: Brazil beat weakened team of Serbia in thriller, China win Asian derby

Because the VNL consists of teams that have been invited by the FIVB, rather than have truly qualified for it based on competitive criteria. These teams (e.g. Belgium & Slovenia with the men) would unjustifiedly lose a lot of points on the ranking because they didn't pay the FIVB enough to participate. on the other hand weak teams like South Korea would see their ranking go up just purely by participating.

In its current format the VNL is nothing but a worthless demonstration tournament of friendly games... :-(
