  1. voto por Melissa Vargas, aunque estimo que no es muy justa esta encuesta ya que faltan jugadoras cubanas como Daimi Ramirez, Rosir Calderon o Yusleinis Herrera. Desconozco por que las han dejado fuera cuando su quehacer en el voleibol actual ha sido igual o mejor que muchas mencionadas de menos nivel.

  2. Ms. Rachel Anne Daquis PHILIPPINES

  8. marouf was good setter but nothing more, he is strongly chimeric player and definitely overrated setter, like all this iranian players above mentioned- maybe except Mousavi.

    And who the hell is Daquis Rachel Anne?? This is some busty model??
