After a difficult success obtained in five sets against Italy, Russia qualified on Saturday night for the final. Today they will be facing Brazil in the final of the 28th Montreux Volley Masters 2013!

  

Since the beginning of the game, both teams put forward their best play and look how to best exploit weaknesses of their opponents. This was for the greatest pleasure of the spectators, treated with a fast and spectacular volleyball.

The first set was taken away by the Russians who knew how to manage key moments to win the first round on a score of 25-23.

In the second set the advantage was this time for the Italians who, managing a slight advance during the entire set, finally took it 21-25.

While the third set seemed acquired to the Italians (22-17), the Russians showed realism and efficiency to transform the advantage in this semi-final and lead 2-1.

The fourth set speaks for itself, as the squadra azzurra clearly dominated it (25-13)!

The tie-break was thus determining for these two magnificent teams: the Russians quickly took three points beforehand in this decisive set, and beside the talented Valentina Diouf (best scorer of the game with 24 points), the Italians never came back, defeated 15-11 in a last exciting set.

All I am saying, it is same guys having bad attitue as always. Wining hides weaknesses, but loosing brings that type of behaviour especially with those 4. And you are right is no Kovac mistake, and yes he needs more time. Reply
