1273 0

For the fifth time in his career, Matthew Anderson has been named the best volleyball indoor player of the year in the United States.

 

“I couldn’t be happier,” he said. “Finding the balance between training and rest was the biggest challenge this season. With very limited time off, and now age, the balance between training and rest is getting harder to find.”

Anderson started 45 out of 70 sets in the FIVB Volleyball Nations League (VNL) and 40 out of 45 sets at the World Championship. He finished the season with 327 kills (48% hitting efficiency), 35 aces and 24 blocks.

 “In 2019, I am looking forward to fighting for more medals and qualifying for the 2020 Olympics with some of my closest friends,” he said. “We have another jam-packed competition schedule and it will take all of us to accomplish our goals.”

Congratulations Matt.

Recall that two female players were named the best in the USA for 2018.

WC 2019 W: Netherlands surprisingly sweep Brazil on Balkestein’s birthday, China wreck Russia

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... :-(
