Boermans De Groot Cancun

Of the 38 events played by Robin Seidl and Philipp Waller, it’s a shame it will likely be the last that is recalled most often. Austria’s No. 1 duo since midway through 2018, when they waltzed their way from a 24 seed to a gold medal in Haiyang, China, in their first event together, Waller and Seidl were the undersized superheroes of the Volleyball World Beach Pro Tour.

Seidl, who competed in the 2016 Rio Olympic Games alongside similarly diminutive Alexander Huber, stands just 6-foot-3, while the 27-year-old Waller is 6-foot-1. They rose as high as No. 12 in the world and, despite the obvious matchup issues, were a consistent thorn in the side of Anders Mol and Christian Sorum, going the full three sets in three of their last six meetings. Now they’re starting over once more..

The final notable switch-up comes from the Netherlands.  With whom would Boermans make a run at the Paris Olympic Games? Answer: Yorick de Groot.


AVP Miami or La Paz, Mexico Challenge?
