The Swedish star also led a line-up of seven outstanding players who were honoured on the Club World Championship Dream Team during a memorable awarding ceremony after the final in Antalya on Sunday evening:
Best Setter: Joanna Wolosz (Prosecco Doc Imoco Conegliano)
Best Opposite: Isabelle Haak (Prosecco Doc Imoco Conegliano)
Best Libero: Monica De Gennaro (Prosecco Doc Imoco Conegliano)
Isabelle Haak was the best scorer in each of Imoco’s four matches in Antalya and emerged as the tournament’s best scorer with 99 points, four clear of Eczacibasi Dynavit Istanbul’s Serbian opposite Tijana Boskovic and six clear of VakifBank’s Italian opposite Paola Egonu. The Swede also topped the best attackers’ chart with 88 kills in offence. Her tournament tally included seven stuff blocks and four aces. In Sunday’s final alone, Haak delivered a fantastic match high of 34 points.
