I always regard her as “Flying Destinee” because of her exceptional back row attack. She flies like an eagle which can’t be stopped by the blockers at the middle. As an opposite hitter she really spikes hard, attacking cross court and down the line. Another thing that makes “Flying D” as a great spiker because she can also use her left hand to hit the ball, especially when it is set poorly.
