  0 Carly DeMarque | November 07th, 2017 | News, Pro Indoor, Turkish League

Round 6 of the Vestel Venus Sultanlar Ligi has shown a great divide between the top-three teams in the league and the rest of the pack. Fenerbahce, Eczacibasi and VakifBank all remain untested in the league with perfect 6-0 record, while the closest teams to them have 3-3 records.

Those same three squads that run the rankings, ran the show in the league this week, all completing sweeps over their opponents with ease while there were no five-set matches across the board.
