Thread: Questions after Europeans

    Default Questions after Europeans

    Looking at the results after the tournament got me thinking about some things. First is who is going to represent Russia at 74 & 84 weight classes? Murtazaliev has proven he can handle the weight change. Keteov has pretty much handled everybody in the field. Will he get the nod? I guess these questions will be answered after Russian Nationals. Big you are a walking data base, do you know Keteov's results against Sajidov and Satiev? I do realize he is just now coming into his own, I was just curious. Then the subject of Aldatov comes up. Is he just a one hit wonder? He didn't get a chance to wrestle back obviously so it is kind of hard to tell where he is. I wouldn't be as hard on him if he had done more previously before his World Championship. (Okay that and I'm still angry how he destroyed the Iranian.) Any thoughts?

    I don't believe Ketoev has ever beaten Saitiev or Sajidov BUT this is a completely different Ketoev we are seeing this year than last year. He might be the best upper body and parterre wrestler freestyle has ever seen. Watch for him to defeat Saitiev and Sajidov at Russian Nationals. That is his only way to Worlds.

    Murtazaliev: Right now Saitiev is supposedly preparing for Russian Nationals for his final chance, if you will, to win there and go to Worlds. Murtazaliev will be there to stop him. If Murtazaliev beats Saitiev there, Saitiev is history.

    Aldatov is a mystery but I don't expect him to improve much by training in Ukraine. He was very good last year but he mostly trained in Russia.

    Have you seen what he did to Borchanka? He nearly ripped his arm off and beat him with it in a LITERAL sense.

    yeah he guillotined him. I wouldn't say he's the best though.

    Ok, so I might be going too far with this but he is clearly one of the best, at least throughout history at 84kg.

    quick,

    You can't forget what he did to Yazdani last month, the same guy Sajidov was having difficulty to beat. Ketoev turned Yazdani easily.

    What he did to Yazdani was just ugly. I was wondering if would follow it up. I am wondering no more. He looks better than Satiev and Sajidov. But they are so good and experienced he might have style problems with one or both of them. I bet it goes to a round robin thing (a beats b but loses to c who loses to b) where they have a hard time deciding.

    I suspect B Satiev either brings it and dominates, or he has lost that step, and is done.
