The FIVB Grand Prix women's volleyball Macao leg kicked off on Friday. China sparked the fireworks with a big matchup against its European rivals from The Netherlands.
The masses were expecting some high-flying action between China and Holland. Both teams built confidence with a pair of opening match wins in Macao.
China started hot against the Netherlands with accurate set-ups followed by spectacular strikes. The Chinese women took the first set 25-16.
China kept the momentum going at the start of the second set, playing well in all aspects of the game.
The Netherlands' side could not keep up with the blocking, passing, and hitting from China, and could only produce shots that lacked the power need for scores. China won the second set 25-19.
But China lost top player Hui Ruoqi to injury in the third set. She keyed the Chinese attack in the second set, but would not return to the match.
Hui's injury didn't make much difference as the Netherlands failed to capitalize. China continued to roll in front of a noisy home-court crowd, winning the third set by 9 points and taking the match 3-sets-to-none.
