Default Italy, Brazil, Serbia and USA lead the standings. 2nd Round will be staged in Osaka a

Tokyo, 4th November 2007 – The FIVB Volleyball World Cup 2007 will leave this night the cities of Tokyo and Hamamatsu. Tomorrow’s another day, and the Head Coaches will hold their press conference at 18:30 hrs in Osaka and Sendai to introduce the 2nd Round. The 1st Round saw Italy (9-0 sets-record), Brazil, Serbia and U.S.A. leading with no loss.

The last day of games in Tokyo started with Dominican Republic: they won their first match of the FIVB World Cup 2007, beating Thailand 3-2 on Sunday. The Dominicans took the first two sets, but eventually won the match on their second match point. The score was 25-14, 25-21, 23-25, 19-25, 17-15, and improved their win-loss record to 1-2. The Thais, playing in their first World Cup, missed one match point in the tie break and dropped to 0-3 in the standings. Head Coach of Thailand Nataphon Srisamutnak said “we made many errors against simple balls, so we must correct our play against taller teams like the Dominican Republic and the Europeans. It was a good experience for us.”

European champions Italy swept to a straight-sets victory over Korea. Ranked fourth in the world, the Italians were in a different league to the 11th-ranked Koreans, who had qualified for the World Cup by finishing fourth in the Asian Championship in Thailand. Italy won 25-15, 25-19, 25-22 to improve their win-loss record to 3-0. Korea dropped to 0-3. “Our first aim was to win the first three matches, so I am satisfied to have achieved that for 3-0” said Massimo Barbolini, the Italian Head Coach.

Default May-treanor & Walsh Tie Swatch-fivb World Tour Mark For Gold Medals

Phuket, Thailand, November 4, 2007 - In the first All-American women’s finale on the SWATCH-FIVB World Tour since August 2005, reigning Olympic and three-time world champions Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh tied the international Beach Volleyball mark for most team gold medals here Sunday by winning the US$200,000 Phuket Thailand Open powered by ptt.

With a 21-18, 16-21 and 15-13 win in 58 minutes over fourth-seeded Nicole Branagh and Elaine Youngs, May-Treanor and Walsh secured the $32,000 first-place prize while capturing their 31st SWATCH-FIVB World Tour gold medal to tie the record established by the legendary Brazilian pair of Adriana Behar and Shelda Bede.

Sunday’s gold medal victory was also the 41st-straight SWATCH win this season for May-Treanor and Walsh, who won seven of their eight FIVB starts this season with a 53-1 match mark and $309,500 in earnings. The American’s only FIVB setback was in the semi-finals at the Norwegian grand slam in Stavanger where China’s Jia Tian and Jie Wang posted a 21-19 and 21-19 win over May-Treanor and Walsh.

Giving this thread a sticky until the Tournament is complete. That way, people don't have to search for it!

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (Nov. 7, 2007) – Tayyiba Haneef-Park (Laguna Hills, Calif.) scored 21 of her match-high 26 points in the final three sets as the U.S. Women’s National Volleyball Team rallied from an 0-2 set deficit to defeat Brazil 17-25, 16-25, 25-21, 25-23, 15-9 Wednesday evening on the fifth day of the FIVB World Cup at Sendai, Japan.

Both teams entered the match undefeated in the 12-team round-robin tournament that takes place over 15 days through Nov. 16 in Japan. The U.S., ranked eighth in the latest FIVB world ranking, improves to 5-0 and is one of two undefeated teams remaining (Italy defeated Japan tonight in three sets at Osaka). The U.S. and Italy meet on the final day of the tournament at Nagoya. Brazil, the third-ranked team in the world and top-rated participating in the World Cup, falls to 4-1 in the tournament standings.

“Yesterday, I said Brazil had no weaknesses,” U.S. Women’s National Team Head Coach ‘Jenny’ Lang Ping said. “You could tell in the first two sets we weren't at the same level. They didn't have their rhythm. When they get going you can give them more details. We played very brave today. We tried everything. I told them you don't have to try and hit the safest spot - you have to be brave, to do something different. Brazil is too different; you have to break them down.”
