Looking at these stats we can confirm that Serbia and Russia should be in final, but thanks to draw they will meet in semifinal. I suppose that Russia will meet Germany in final. I’m impressed most by Russian team, but everything can happen.

Who can get inidvidual awards? CEV should  use new system with best line-up, so candidates are (I chose only from Top 4 teams):
MVP (depends mostly on winner): Joavana Brakocevic/Tatiana Kosheleva/Margareta Kozuch/Charlotte Leys (I’d choose Kosheleva)
Best Opposite: Natalya Obmochaeva/Jovana Brakocevic (depends on last matches performance)
Best Outside Hitters: Tatiana Kosheleva/Charlotte Leys/Jelena Nikolic/Maren Brinker (best are Kosheleva and Leys)
Best Middle Blockers: Christiane Fürst/Yulia Morozova Freya Aelbrecht/Milena Rasic (best are Morozova and Fürst)
Best Setter: Ekaterina Pankova/Frauke Dirickx/Maja Ognjenovic/Kathleen Weiss (hard choice, I’d choose Ognjenovic)
Best Libero: Suzana Cebic/Lenka Dürr/Valerie Courtois/Svetlana Kryuchkova (hard choice again, best receiver is Kryuchkova, but she plays with Anna Malova, who’s defence Libero, I’d choose Courtois)
