Mihajlovic helps Serbia shut out Turkey in Ankara


Serbia's Brankica Mihajlovic powers through one of her frequent attacks against Turkey

Ankara, Turkey, July 7, 2017 – Brankica Mihajlovic put on a quality performance for her team, as Serbia handed Turkey a 3-0 (25-19, 25-17, 25-15) shutout in the opening game of the FIVB Volleyball World Grand Prix tournament in Ankara.

Mihajlovic was by far the best scorer in this remake of the European Championship bronze medal match in 2015, when the Serbian team also mastered a three-set win. Very efficient in offence, she contributed 18 points to her squad’s victory on Friday. Her teammate Jovana Stevanovic followed with 13 points, including four of the team’s eight kill blocks. Sub-in Polen Uslupehlivan was the home side’s top scorer with seven points.
