If there will be any FIVB Heroes in the final will be decided on Saturday. However, the chances are very good, since eight FIVB Heroes will bump, set and spike in Germany’s capital city.
After Todd Rogers and Phil Dalhausser didn’t reach the podium last week in Gstaad – disappointing by their standarts – the American number one wants to rediscover their rhythm. Their biggest rivals, Alison Cerutti and his legendary partner Emanuel Rego will give everything to decide this high-class duel in their favor. The Brazilians won’t lack confidence, as they are having a great summer so far and won silver last week. Emanuel present all weekend long, since his giant statue is on the show grounds.
Hoping for a huge crowd will be the German FIVB Heroes Julius Brink and Jonas Reckermann. It’s only their second start on the World Tour this summer after Jonas’ injury forced them to sit out most tournaments. Nevertheless, their opponents should better be ready because the Germans already proved what they are capable of. At their very first tournament this summer, Julius and Jonas immediately won the European Championships.
Last but not least, Penggen Wu and Linyin Xu will try to finally get things going for them. The Chinese are still trying to repeat their last success from last year, but their play in the past lets no doubt about their qualities. The other teams will be warned.
