638 0

Eemi Tervaportti, the setter of Finland, is currently battling at the European Championship and we have contacted him in order to get some answers regarding the upcoming clubs’ season and their next rival in 1/8 finals – France.

 

Of course, let’s start with the recent games of Finland at the EuroVolley.

You have managed to reach the 1/8 finals at the EuroVolley with Finland. What are your impressions about the games of your national team in Pool C?

We have been improving game by game. We had some ups and downs, but we fought together and achieved the first target of the tournament,” says Eemi for WorldofVolley.

In the 1/8 finals, you are meeting France – your expectations? (If you are answering this question after the game with France, just share your impressions)

They have a lot of skilled players and really solid team play. We need to prepare well against them.”

You are staying for the second season in Olympiacos. What are your impressions about the last season?

My season in Olympiacos was great. We managed to win almost all the trophies, and I was really happy about the professionalism around the team and club.”

We assume that the goals from the last season are the same for the upcoming one.

Nothing less than winning everything in Greece and try to go as far as possible in the CEV-Cup.”

How far can Olympiacos go in the CEV Cup?

We will see. We have Modena in the first round which is not going to be easy but we will do our best and see where it gets us.”

What do you think about Oly’s fans?

The fans are amazing. It's always nice to see how they fill up the gym and keep up the atmosphere.”

Since you played in many leagues in Europe, how would you rate the Greek League?

I think in Greek league the top teams are good. I don't know where I would rate them but I think a similar level like France.”

What are your plans for the future?

To play at a high level as long as possible and try to improve my skills as a setter.”

TUR W: VakıfBank’s hellish plan – Bartsch to come in January, Egonu in summer!

So Ebrar out and Haak will be replaced ? I suppose Ezcacibasi will respond, Kim is definately not in her league, i think Tijana need some partner, and Natalia is not the one. I still cant see Egonu moving from Italian league to Turkey, that must be some great payment to do so. Otherwise, i would like to see Brakocevic & Tijana in same club, no other option to respond to Vakif. Unless Natalia and Kim will push their game. Maybe Tijana should go to Novara, her season if nulled with this team. Reply

Re: @Anon - Zhu Ting is not gonna go anywhere till Olympic is over. Wrist injury gonna take sometime to heal and recover. Hopefully She will fully fit before Olympic. Otherwise defending the title is almost impossible for China without Zhu Ting.

If Zhu Ting is still hurt or injured during the tournament, the coach can use her as a middle blocker. I feel she is the best blocker on the team. She has great instincts of where the hitter will hit to, she is tall and her hang time is very good. She is one of the more effective blockers against Egonu.

The different in strength and overall qualities of the team between Thai and the rest are just too great . Thai can still win even with their reserve members. Reply
