On the evening of September 22, Beijing time, in the Paris Olympic Women's Volleyball Qualification Group A match, the Chinese women's volleyball team fought hard for 5 games and lost 2-3 to the Dutch women's volleyball team, suffering two consecutive losses. The Chinese team has fallen to fourth in the group, and the prospects for qualification are worrying.
Before the match, world champions Serbia lost 1-3 to Dominica, Serbia, the Netherlands and Dominica also ranked in the top three of the group with 4 wins and 1 loss, and Group A qualification was confusing.
After losing to Canada in the last game, the Chinese team regrouped this time. As soon as the game started, the Chinese team quickly entered the state, occupied the advantage of the network port, and went to the city first. In the second game, the two sides fought serves, Li Yingying's attack was blocked, and teammates Wang Yunbi and Yuan Xinyue both stood up. At the end of the second game, the Dutch team tied the score 24-24, at this time Gong Xiangyu attacked outside the boundary, challenged the thug out of bounds successfully, and the Chinese team won the set point 25-24, relying on Li Yingying's tenacious defense and Yuan Xinyue's probe ball to score, and finally won 26-24. It is precisely because every point is tightly grasped in every game that the Chinese team has a 2-0 lead.
In the third game, the Dutch team took the initiative, and when the Chinese team was behind the score, Cai Bin replaced Ding Xia, Zheng Yixin, and Wu Mengjie, but there was no great effect, and the Dutch team won back a game.
The fourth inning became a watershed moment in the game. The success rate of the Chinese team has improved, the efficiency of anti-counter-attack has improved, and it has always maintained the score lead. Just when the Chinese women's volleyball team was singing all the way, Wang Yuanyuan was sentenced to hit the net, causing the team to panic. At this time, Cai Bin called a timeout and asked the team members to "have courage on the field, play decisively, and grab the fast pace." However, in the case of taking the match point first, the Chinese team was saved by the opponent for three consecutive match points, and the game was dragged into a tiebreaker.
In the tiebreaker, the Chinese team is not without a chance, but an attack often does not get the ball. At this time, the Dutch team's serve was still very impactful, and the competition between the two teams for the net port entered a white heat. Although Cai Bin repeatedly told the team during the pause: "An attack must be decisive!" One pass and two passes to be decisive! "But the Chinese team is a little weak, especially in the multi-round offensive and defensive conversion.
Looking at the whole game, the Chinese women's volleyball team can play a beautiful attack, but it is lackluster in blocking and defense, and its performance is not stable enough, especially in the handling of key balls, it is not resolute enough, and it is difficult to lose, and the game that could have ended 3-1 was beaten 2-3.
On the 23rd and 24th, the Chinese women's volleyball team will play against the Dominican women's volleyball team and the Serbian women's volleyball team, whether there is still a possibility of qualifying, first of all, to ensure a full victory in the two games, and secondly, to see the results of several other games, the initiative is no longer in their hands.
At present, the most important thing for the Chinese women's volleyball team is to correct the mentality. Since no one is completely sure of winning, it is better not to think about the result first, but to show the courage to break the cauldron and give it a go.
