Here is an overall and team by team analysis of the sideout phase from 2019 VNL. The overall sideout rate of 67.9% is essentially the same as all major events / leagues. One interesting point is that the sideout rate for float serves is lower than for jump serves despite reception being better and the FBSO% being 5% higher. Good jump serves are very effective, but the errors give free points that balance it out. And setter in 1 is the worst sideout rotation.
How teams win their side outs. The top two teams, Brazil and Iran, have the highest percentage of sideouts from opponent service errors. Maybe other teams have to adopt a higher risk serving strategy to try to offset their sideout skill.
The ranking of teams in different components and areas of sideout. Brazil the best team in every area, except float serve sideout. Perhaps opponents should float serve more and take less risk (see above). USA despite excellent reception and attack after reception ranks only 6th / 7th in overall categories.
