German tennis women surprise

The German women’s tennis players have a surprisingly good chance of reaching the final round of the Billie Jean King Cup

First Laura Siegemund surprised everyone, then Tatjana Maria followed suit: After strong performances in the tough away match in Brazil, the German women’s tennis team have the best chance of reaching the final round of the Billie Jean King Cup. After the first two singles matches, the score in the qualifying duel in Sao Paulo is 2:0.

Siegemund first beat the world number 13 Beatriz Haddad Maia 6:4, 6:2. Maria then faced Laura Pigossi (WTA-119th) and came back from a set down to win 2:6, 6:4, 6:4.

“I knew that I could really hurt her with my game. But overall I can be quite satisfied with a two-set victory,” said Siegemund. Team captain Rainer Schüttler put the brakes on with a view to the other matches: “It’s only the first day. Nothing has been decided here yet, but we have a good starting position. “

Kerber could also still get involved

On Saturday, one more point will be enough for the German team to win the duel with Brazil. Maria will face Haddad Maia, Siegemund will then take on Pigossi

If there is a deciding doubles match, Angelique Kerber, who is returning to the tournament, would also be involved. The former world number one is back in the German Tennis Federation line-up for the first time since taking a break to have a baby.
