Ecco Tappe & Calendario “Beach Volley World Tour 2015”/ E nella prima a Fuzhou (Cina) sono winners Jamie-Lyn Broder/Kristina Valjas


30/04/2015

E’ finalmente ripartito il Beach Volley World Tour 2015 con la prima tappa disputata a Fuzhou in Cina. La prima di una lunga serie di cui vi proponiamo innanzitutto il relativo Calendario 2015 con tutte le tappe data per data, location per location, da dove vi proporremo innanzitutto le performance di Marta Menegatti & Victoria Orsi Toth ma anche di tutte le altre beacher italiane protagoniste sulla sabbia in the world.
Ma come si comporteranno le italiane? Ricordato il ritorno di Lissandro come CT della nazionale italiana femminile, facciamo rewind per segnalarvi che da metà marzo 2015 le azzurre Marta & Viki sono volate in Brasile dove hanno lavorato per 15 giorni a Saquarema prima di continuare gli allenamenti sulla sabbia di Rio de Janeiro dove, a partire dal 30 marzo, sono state raggiunte da Agata Zuccarelli e Arianna Barboni accompagnate dall’assistente allenatore Terenzio Feroleto. 

Detto altresì che Menegatti e Orsi Toth fino al 14 aprile durante lo stage brasiliano presso il Centro Federale di Saquarema si sono allenate don diverse coppie verdeoro, va ricordato quanto scritto sul sito della Federvolley che comunica ufficialmente così la volontà di ‘forgiare’ nuovi talenti:” Beach volley: al lavoro a Formia un gruppo di atlete agli ordini di Lissandro/ Sono al lavoro presso il Centro di Preparazione Olimpica di Formia agli ordini del CT Lissandro 14 atlete per un collegiale che terminerà il 2 maggio. Novità dello stage è la presenza di alcune giocatrici che militano nei campionati di pallavolo di Serie A e che in passato - alcune di loro - hanno vestito la maglia delle Nazionali Giovanili Azzurre: Ilaria Maruotti (Liu Jo Modena); Alessia Fiesoli (Pallavolo Piacentina); Michela Catena, Valentina Civardi, Elena Cappelli, Asia Coliandro; Eleonora Bruno (Zeta Sistem Urbino) e Angela Gabbiadini (Volalto Caserta).

 

La loro presenza, prevista fino al 29 aprile, rientra nel progetto del settore beach volley stilato dal direttore tecnico Lissandro con l’obiettivo di visionare un numero sempre maggiore di sportive e conseguentemente allargare il gruppo di beacher di interesse nazionale. Con loro, e fino al 2 maggio, si alleneranno le specialiste della disciplina: Marta Menegatti, Viktoria Orsi Toth, Giulia Momoli, Laura Giombini e Agata Zuccarelli.>>.

Ma se questo rappresenta una specie di Lettera di Intenti sul quale la Federazione vuole costruire il suo futuro migliore, una domanda sorge spontanea:” Come sono andate le azzurre nell’Open di Fuzhou?” Parliamo di quelle ‘presenti ( visto che mancavano Marta & Viki) e comunque delle italiane visto anche la partecipazione di Greta Cicolari in coppia con la Giogoli senza il supporto della federazione italiana per le note vicende pregresse.
Ebbene noi vi proponiamo i risultati ufficiali della federazione segnalandovi News by News tutto quanto è successo alle italiane sulla sabbia cinese, segnalandovi peraltro by www.fivb.org tutto quanto è successo tra podio e dintorni sia nelle gare maschili che in quelle femminili, giusto per capire meglio cosa succederà nelle successive tappe del Beach Volley World Tour 2015 di cui vi proponiamo come doverosa Anteprima News tutto il relativo Calendario ufficiale.

TERZA MAIN NEWS( by www.fivb.org, 21- 26 avril 2015) / FUZHOU OPEN  : WINNERS WOMEN / First FIVB gold for Canada’s Broder/Valjas at Fuzhou Open
 FUZHOU, China, April 26, 2015 – Jamie Lyn Broder/Kristina Valjas from Canada defied the odds to take gold at the 2015 FIVB Beach Volleyball Fuzhou Open. The first FIVB tournament of the season also opens the Olympic qualification window for the 2016 Rio Olympic Games in Brazil.
In its third consecutive year, the FIVB Fuzhou Open is the first double-gender FIVB Open event of the 2015 FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour calendar with a prize purse of $150,000.
Self-confessed underdogs, Broder/Valjas appeared anything but underdogs on the final day of competition at the FIVB season openers. The Canadians beat US veterans Kerri Walsh/April Ross in their tough semifinal before winning the final against Germany’s Chantal Laboureur/Julia Sude 2-0 (21-17, 23-21).
In the bronze medal match, defending Fuzhou Open champions Walsh/Ross left with the medal after dashing local hopes by beating China’s Wang Fan/Yue Yuan 2-1 (13-21, 21-13, 15-11). 

Gold is the colour for Broder/Valjas
After an incredible tournament in Fuzhou, Broder/Valjas left the final with an absolute clean sheet, winning all of their seven matches. Entering the last match, a Broder/Valjas - Laboureur/Sude encounter seemed the unlikely final, but unwavering determination brought the two teams together for the gold medal match.
Germany caught Broder/Valjas off guard at the start of the match, but the first set quickly evened out. The pressure of a gold medal began to weigh as a number of service errors from both sides gave away points, but Valjas' presence at the net and Broder's solid digs swung the score in Canada’s favour. 
The second set saw equally impressive play from Laboureur/Sude, with a great Sude lob into the far corner at the halfway point. Two huge blocks by Valjas and strong serving took them to match point and the Canadians, clearly enjoying the moment made sure of the gold.
“Gold is the colour - we wouldn’t have had it any other way. What a tournament, we battled through a lot of three sets yesterday and today. A lot of really tough opponents so it feels so good to come away on top,” said Broder.
“I don’t know if I can remember anything that just happened. I’m in shock. We knew that they were going to be strong coming in. They are both solid players with great execution so we had to match that with our execution. We had to come and bring our aggressive attacks because that’s our game and that’s how we win. Our confidence is really up as we had so many people cheering for us, sending these messages, our families, our friends, our coach, everyone is behind us and that’s what I think helped push us through this final game,” said Valjas.
“It’s a great starting-off point, I mean first tournament of the year and we’re in Olympic qualification, it’s awesome to have such a strong start and I think it’s just something we can continue to build on and use to feel confidence for future events,” said Broder.
To reach the final, Broder/Valjas had the unenviable task of beating Walsh/Ross. The match was impossible to predict from start to finish, but the Canadians' spirited performance won the day 2-1 (28-26, 14-21, 15-13).
“It was a battle. The first set bonus points and going as deep as it did, it really took a lot of focus and a lot of fitness as well. It was just keep working for each rally. They are such a strong team that if you give them an easy ball, they are going to come back firing. So we had to make sure we kept executing every touch that we had the opportunity to for the win,” said Broder.

Laboureur/Sude claim silver
Silver for Laboureur/Sude is only their second ever FIVB medal after winning silver at the 2013 Durban Open. Despite the disappointment of losing the final match, the Germans are happy with their set up for the season.
“We are a little bit disappointed because of the last game, but all in all we are very happy to win silver, it’s a great feeling to go home with a medal,” said Laboureur.
“It was a surprise that they played so good, they had a very good start in the season and they beat Kerri Walsh and April Ross so we knew that they had a really good tournament and we tried to do the right things against them but in the end they had a really good level and we couldn’t reach our goals and tactics,” said Sude.
“It’s a great start in the season. The points are very important for Olympic qualification and for us Germans especially, there is a big fight between the teams so it was important for us to win this silver medal,” said Laboureur.

Walsh/Ross add bronze to their collection
The bronze medal match was between Walsh/Ross and local favourites Wang Fan/Yue Yuan producing a very unusual score. China came out hard in the first allowing little chance for Ross to exercise her big hits. Wang Fan/Yue Y. appeared comfortable in their game and the US team found themselves stuck on ten points leaving the first set for China.
Walsh/Ross turned the game around in the second dominating the set as the Chinese team had done in the first. In the tie break Yue. Y did a great job of receiving the US powerful attacks, but Walsh/Ross had found their rhythm and bronze went to the USA 2-1 (13-21, 21-13, 15-11).

“For me it’s a little bitter sweet. I’m so proud that we won that game against a very, very good Chinese team. We trained against them a couple of times in the pre-season so it was a great match and we expected it to be. We have course want to be fighting for the gold and I feel like we let the match slip through our fingers this morning and unfortunately that’s what I’m thinking about now, but big picture, it was a great tournament and I’m so proud that we came back from a butt-kicking in game one and turned it around and won against a very good team,” said Walsh.

“I’m proud of how we stayed steady the whole time, they came out really, really strong, played amazingly in the first game. We started to figure things out at the beginning of the second game, so I’m just proud of us and how we problem solved and how we stayed calm, but like she said, we always want to be on that top spot so I think first tournament of the season we’re on the podium, going in the right direction. I’m really happy that we came to this tournament to get in competition shape,” said Ross.
“We’re going to play in all the Grand Slams, our next event of the FIVB will be Moscow and then we just go. We have the AVP tournament as well at home, but we want to qualify for the Olympics, we want that number one seed, so this is our start and we go from here,” said Walsh.

 

Wang Fan/Yue Y. best results have come from playing on home sands when they claimed silver at the Shanghai Grand Slam and Xiamen Open in 2014, but a Fuzhou Open medal was just out of reach.
“We came out strong in the first set. But we got stuck in their rhythm in the second set,
"We've found out our weak points at this tournament. We've got to know how to improve and how to play those strong teams when we meet them again.
"We are heading to Shanghai next week, where we will train for three weeks and prepare for the Grand Slams and the world championship,” said Yue Y.
The Fuzhou Open is held at the purpose built venue in the city’s Mianjiang Riverside Park. China has hosted a total of 49 FIVB World Tour events and the second Chinese stop on the 2015 calendar will be the double-gender event FIVB Xiamen Open scheduled for September 22 to 27.
The gold medal teams in each gender at the FIVB Fuzhou Open will each split $11,000, the silver $8,000, the bronze $6,000 and fourth place $4,500.

QUARTA MAIN NEWS ( by www.fivb.org , 26.04.2015) FUZHOU OPEN: MEN WINNERS:
Fuzhou Open gold for Germany’s Böckermann/Flüggen

Fuzhou, China, April 25, 2015 – Markus Böckermann/Lars Flüggen from Germany defeated former world champions Alexander Brouwer/Robert Meeuwsen from the Netherlands to win gold at the 2015 FIVB Beach Volleyball Fuzhou Open. The first FIVB tournament of the season also opens the Olympic qualification window for the 2016 Rio Olympic Games in Brazil.
In its third consecutive year, the FIVB Fuzhou Open is the first double-gender FIVB Open event of the 2015 FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour calendar with a prize purse of US$150,000.
In the final, Böckermann/Flüggen displayed the same gritty determination that has been seen throughout the Fuzhou Open to win gold, beating Brouwer/Meeuwsen 2-0 (21-19, 21-19). Bronze medal went to Youssef Krou/Edouard Rowlandson from France in a turnaround match against USA’s Todd Rogers/Stafford Slick 2-1 (19-21, 21-17, 15-9).

German gold
The men’s final was a great spectator match for the crowds at Mianjiang Riverside Park under overcast skies. Both teams began by feeling their way into the match with Böckermann/Flüggen taking an early lead. Brouwer/Meeuwsen quickly adapted to their opponents and closed the gap to make it 15-15.
Böckermann/Flüggen continued to switch up their returns making it difficult for the Dutch pair to predict as the first set went to Germany. The Netherlands never stopped putting on the pressure and it was not going to be an easy victory for Böckermann/Flüggen.
A spectacular German point secured the gold with a massive hit from Flüggen followed by a final tip over the net from Böckermann. 

“I can't finds words. It's so awesome. Great victory against the world champions. Our first tournament victory, so you can imagine how we feel,” said Böckermann.
“It was a very close match, I think. It could have been the other way round and the Netherlands won this. There was always a lot of pressure. Finally, we had a little bit more luck, I think,” said Flüggen.
 “We wanted to focus on our serves. We knew the centre court is hard, a lot of people are here. It's another feeling playing in the side court, so we focused on our game. Of course, I won't tell you our tactics,” said Böckermann.
In their first tournament as a team, it is also Böckermann’s first FIVB medal seeing a great start to the new season.
“We get a lot of points for the win, I think and it's really important for us. A lot of German teams want to play. This is the best result we could do,” said Flüggen.

Silver for Brouwer/Meeuwsen
Brouwer/Meeuwsen come out of the Fuzhou Open with silver after a troubled 2014 due to injury. In their semifinal against USA’s Todd Rogers/Stafford Slick, the Dutch pair put into play all the skills that made them world champions in 2013. Screaming serves and incredible power across court proves Brouwer/Meeuwsen are truly back in 2015.
 “At the moment we’re not really happy because of course it’s disappointing to lose the final but I think the Germans played really well, really strong and they had a lot of pressure on us with the serve, block defence and we couldn’t play like we did the other matches with the pressure with them. In the end it was close, even though we had felt like we didn’t play well. Maybe when we get back to Holland after a long flight, I can be happy with silver medal,” said Brouwer.
“Throughout the rest of the tournament we played really well. I think all the matches except for today was worse than the rest for sure.
“I think it’s a good way to start the tour season. Of course we want to get the first place, but we didn’t but I think this gives us a lot of confidence in the way we play now and it’s going to be a nice season,” said Meeuwsen. 
“I think we played really strong, physical, intense, good energy and our goal here was to get a medal so it’s hanging around our neck so I think we should be satisfied but like I said after this final and losing it’s still a little bit of a disappointment,” said Brouwer.

Krou/Rowlandson take home bronze
The bronze medal match pitted Frenchmen Krou/Rowlandson against Rogers/Slick. The US team had the upper hand in the first set with flashes of excellence from Slick and outstanding digs as always from Rogers who supported his partner at every moment.
By midway through the second set, Krou/Rowlandson were providing more of a challenge for the US pair and some powerful accurate serving from Rowlandson led the match into the tie break. The third set was a thriller with both teams diving around the four corners of the court. A last Krou tip over the net and the bronze belonged to France 2-1 (19-21, 21-17, 15-9).
“We’re really, really happy. We absolutely don’t know how we came back from the groups because we lost the first two games of the competition and were really down at this point and didn’t know why we weren’t playing our game. So finishing with a bronze medal is like coming out from nowhere,” said Rowlandson.
“Rogers is like, when we were young, he is the American digger. We came out on the court and didn’t mind if he is double Olympic champion or anything he is just our opponent and we played like just any other opponent. We were just not enough aggressive in the first set and then we start back to find our game true and talking positively,” said Krou.
“This medal means the main draw starts and the beginning of the Grand Slam season and moreover it gives us confidence for the rest of the season and the work we made during the preparation,” said Krou.
The Fuzhou Open is held at the purpose built venue in the city’s Mianjiang Riverside Park. China has hosted a total of 49 FIVB World Tour events and the second Chinese stop on the 2015 calendar will be the double-gender event FIVB Xiamen Open scheduled for September 22 to 27.
The gold medal teams in each gender at the FIVB Fuzhou Open will each split $11,000, the silver $8,000, the bronze $6,000 and fourth place $4,500. The women’s medal matches will be held on Sunday.



EXTRATIME by SS/ La cover è per ‘the winners’ descritte così nella foto web site by www.fivb.org:” Jamie Lyn Broder (left) and Kristina Valjas from Canada take home Fuzhou Open gold after beating Germany’s Chantal Laboureur/Julia Sude in the final >>.
Detto che le coppie federali ‘gemelli Ingrosso e Momoli-Giombini si sono entrambe classificate al 17esimo posto mentre si sono classificate in 25esima posizione Giogoli-Cicolari, vogliamo sottolineare il ‘ritorno’ di Greta Cicolari dopo i noti 600 giorni di squalifica.
Come sempre senza entrare nel merito, le diamo il benvenuto on the sand of beach volley, tanto più che sul suo profilo face book ha postato in data 26 aprile 2015 queste precise parole “Sono rinata” . Auguri Happy Birth Day allora Greta & friends anche perché questo è anche il mio giorno di nascita.
Fermo restando che sempre Greta Cicolari ha postato il suo ‘sentito e fresco’ pensiero :<< Quando perdiamo il diritto di essere differenti, perdiamo il privilegio di essere liberi."
 (Charles Hughes) /  "When we lose the right to be different, we lose the privilege of being free." (Charles Hughes) >> , si è poi rapportata così coi suoi fan:<< L'Italia è il mio paese e io mi sento italiana. A Fuzhou vestivo il top con scritto Ita, non Federazione. Io sono Italiana e continuerò a rappresentare tutti voi che mi volete così bene!!! >>.
Va altresì ricordato che comunque Greta Cicolari ( in coppia con Giulia Decordi del Team Nutrilite) si era aggiudicarsi il titolo «Queens of Snow 2015» della tappa tricolore, dopo un’agguerrita finale tutta azzurra contro Giulia Toti e Francesca Giogoli, e che peraltro Greta è stata premiata come miglior giocatrice dell’appuntamento italiano.
Tra l’altro sempre a Plan de Corones sono stati i gemelli Paolo e Matteo Ingrosso winners contro tedeschi Max Hauser e Julius Höfer.
Insomma, bentornata Greta Cicolari perché noi non dimenticheremo mai che Lei , prima di rinascere’ è stata insieme alla nostra polesana Marta Menegatti la ‘coppia regina’ della sabbia anche alle Olimpiadi di Londra 2012.

Perciò aspettando Marta Menegatti protagonista in coppia con Viktoria Orsi Toth nella prossima tappa del World Tour , partiamo in modo beneaugurante proprio da Viki & Marta ( a dx) in apertura di fotogallery insieme al Ct Lissandro e poi sulla spiaggia di Ipanema  con sfondo brasiliano ‘Pan de Asugar’ a Rio de Janeiro.
E con riferimento alla tappa di Fazhou 2015 ecco innanzitutto i gemelli Ingrosso in due flsg tra bagger e muro-rete.
Onorano però come winners la coppia tedesca in canotta gialla e descritta così in didascalia by web site www.fivb.org “Markus Böckermann (left) and Lars Flüggen from Germany celebrate their gold medal at the 2015 Fuzhou Open “.
Passando alla gare femminili disputate a Fuzhou ecco la coppia Momoli – Giombini prima in tuffo d’archivio targato ‘Parana 2014’ e poi in flash cinese muro-rete.
Quindi per onorare la coppia Cicolari & Giogoli partiamo da Great by face book proponendo poi la coppia sulla sabbia a Fuzhou e quindi ancora Greta stavolta by You tube perché con sottofondo musicate la canzone “sono tornata”.
E noi che parliamo solo di sport giocato, completiamo il reportage by Fuzhou proponendovi in due significativi flash ( gioia e golden medals) la coppia winner  canadese Broder & Valijas prime regine del Beach Volley World Tour 2015 e che …faranno sicuramente meglio rispetto al loro 16° posto in classifica dentro la Top Twenty 2014 ( vedi certificazione ).
Ma sicuramente avranno vita dura contro le azzurre Marta Menegatti & Viktoria Orsi Toth che l’anno scorso erano nella Top Ten e che quest’anno vogliono sfruttare al massimo la loro ‘amalgama’ e la presenza del ritrovato Ct Lissandro, col quale a Formia ( vedi girls in foto) stanno perfezionando la loro preparazione.
