Silva, who changed the attack step, the reason why he ‘willingly’ accepted criticism from the head of the ‘thorough’ public/private division
“I like the way I work with a director who distinguishes between public and private matters.”
GS Caltex foreigner Giselle Silva scored 34 points in the second round match against Dodram 2023-2024 V League Cheong Gwan-jang held at Jangchung Gymnasium in Seoul on the 14th, leading the team to a 3-0 (27-25 25-19 25-15) set score. After taking the lead, he said this about his chemistry with the director.
On this day, Silva was truly powerful. I played 3 sets and got 34 points. Starting with 9 points in the first set, he scored 14 points in the second set. They scored 12 points through the third set. Silva’s highest score in his career is a remarkable performance, considering that he scored 40 points after a close first-round full set match against Pepper Savings Bank.
After the game, Silva said, “Of course it feels good to win big,” and “I think finishing 3-0 will be very helpful in preparing for the next game.”
GS Caltex coach Sang-hyun Cha focused on Silva after the previous Pepper Savings Bank game. He showed the analysis video to Silva, who was not performing at the same level as usual, and talked about changes in his steps, and that part worked.안전놀이터
Silva said, “He told me to take the steps and move quickly. He tried to do that, and what he thought about during the game turned out to be effective. If you move faster, you can get under the ball quickly and hit a higher RBI. This is a different part of attack power. “I think I’m well prepared, especially when I hit an open attack,” he explained.
He blocked Mega’s attacks one after another at 20-22 in the first set. It was the game that laid the foundation for a comeback by making it 22-22. Silva said, “The main strategy of the match was to follow Mega and block him. It was at the end of the set, and there was nothing else we could do at that time. “I did my best to stop it, but it worked well,” he said with a laugh.
The chemistry with Director Cha is also good. Silva said, “The coach is very passionate and fierce during training and on the court. But he is someone you can be friends with off the court. He respects my personality and I like working like this. He smiled, saying, “This is my first time working with a manager who distinguishes between public and private matters in my professional career, and I really like it.”
Her husband and daughter Siana were with her at the stadium. “It helps to have Siana by her side,” Silva said. Training is hard for her and she wants to go to bed quickly when she finishes late, but she can’t do that, that’s the life of a mother,” she said with a smile, adding, “When things are hard, she gets emotionally sensitive, and her husband helps her a lot with that.”
GS Caltex, which is closely following the leader Heungkuk Life Insurance by 3 points, will face off on the 17th. Silva pledged, “Rather than being specific, I will attack strongly from beginning to end and show that I am mentally prepared.”
