Player's Profile 

Jaqueline Pereira De Carvalho Endres

Spiking her way to the top

Jacqueline is nowadays a regular in the Brazilian team, playing absolutely superbly in the 2005 World Grand Prix, best illustrated by her position as the second best scorer of the competition after two weeks.

However, the 21-year-old does not feel intimidated by such responsibility and does not run after individual targets. She prefers to work hard to help the whole team become champion.

Question: What has changed from the Jacqueline of four years ago, to the one nowadays?

Jacqueline: I think I have grown up. I was 17 and now I’m 21. I feel much more mature, in my personal and professional life. I’ve passed through a lot of things, I’ve learnt a lot. I had to be away for two years because of my knee, that I injured twice. I started playing again only last year.

Q: How do you analyze this new Brazilian team?

Jacqueline: It’s a young team, everyone is almost the same age. We are still getting to know each other, because we’ve been together for only a short time. We have disputed the Courmayer Tournament and Montreux Volley Masters, and we won both. We are always trying to help one another and we still need to develop to reach the level hoped for by coach José Roberto Guimarães.

Q: Is it a personal goal being the best scorer of the team during the World Grand Prix and among the best attackers?

Jacqueline: All these are a consequence of everyone’s work. If there isn’t a player who defends well and a good setter, the ball doesn’t reach the attackers in the right way. I don’t have individual targets as a goal, I just intend to help and be efficient to the best of my ability.

Q: The coach José Roberto Guimarães hasn’t made any distinction between reserves and starting players. Does this motivate all the players to be at their best in every game?

Jacqueline: There is no starting team, indeed. The players who are better will play. We have 12 starters. Everyone is at the same level and José Roberto knows how to make the best out of this situation.

 Eleonora Lo Bianco
A revamped Italian squad could mean a big change in the career of Italy’s exciting setter Eleonora Lo Bianco. One of three players born in 1979, Lo Bianco is the fourth oldest player in the Italian squad at 25 but with the oldest player at 28, Lo Bianco is preparing to take hold of the reigns of the team in more ways than one.
