Thurs: USA vs. Serbia, Mitchem

First the good news. Forgot to mention yesterday that Mitchem’s surgery went well. She was in a little pain, rested yesterday.

As mentioned on previous thread, U.S. loses to Serbia in 5.
Thought it was pretty well set up for their first gold.
They’ll play loser of China-Netherlands for gold on Saturday.

Men play Italy Friday in one semifinal, the other has Brazil vs. Russian Federation.

    China vs. Serbia for the gold; USA vs. Netherlands for the bronze; Lang Ping one step closer to her first gold as a coach…

    USA should have won, but fell down in the stretch. Another service error just came at a really bad time to swing it in favor of the Serbs.

    I called Serbia in the finals months ago. They have no weaknesses except maybe some inconsistencies. Every position is a strength for them. I think they will demolish China.

    Cindy, can you keep us updated if/when Mitchem returns to some drills, like hitting, etc., please. Thank you
