Supported by tennis legend Boris Becker, Alexander Zverev got the German Davis Cup team back on track. The Olympic champion defeated Stan Wawrinka 6-4, 6-1 in Trier on Friday evening, giving Germany the equalizer in the qualifying match against Switzerland. At the start, Oscar Otte lost 6:2, 2:6, 4:6 to Swiss number one Marc-Andrea Hüsler. The Cologne native remains without a win in the Davis Cup.
On Saturday from 1.00 p.m. the doubles game is scheduled for which Andreas Mies and Tim Pütz are scheduled for the German side. Then Zverev plays against Hüsler before Otte and Wawrinka face each other. However, changes are still possible.
At the end of April, Becker was sentenced to two and a half years in prison by a court in London because he had not properly declared parts of his assets in his bankruptcy proceedings. He was released in mid-December after 231 days behind bars. In Trier, the three-time Wimbledon winner also wants to hold talks with the German Tennis Association about possible cooperation in the future.
