Belarus Afraid To Win A Set
This match was boring because neither one of two teams played a decent defense. Both teams have tall girls and base their game on attack, so the points were short and without any excitement. In the last set team from Belarus was ahead one point on the score 19:18, but no player wanted to take the responsibility on herself and finish the set, so they lost the set and the match. The statistics showed that was not a Russian team who won the match, but Belarus team who lost by making 33 errors in comparison with 8 on the Russian side.
