Serbia stars fail to shine
There was no change in the finishing position
for Serbia, who also ended up in ninth place in
the 2011 FIVB World League, having captured
bronze in 2010. The 2011 European champions
had to play without Ivan Miljkovic, who decided
to retire from international competition at the
age of 32, but Serbia still had plenty of talent left
on their roster, including new captain Janic Bojan,
Milos Nikic, Dragan Stankovic and the Kovacevic
brothers. Serbia coach Igor Kolakovic realised the
battle to qualify for the Finals would be tough
against Russia, Cuba and Japan. They started off
with a five-set loss to Russia before recovering to
beat Cuba and Japan in five setters. In Round 2
in the Dominican Republic, strong blocking and a
good all-around team performance earned them
a victory over Russia, but after that the wheels
fell off and the only team they could beat in their
remaining eight matches was Japan (who lost
all their matches). Serbia ended up with a 6:6
win:loss record and finished third in Pool A, level
on 20 points with second-placed Russia. Uros
Kovacevic was their top scorer.
