After the clear defeat in her singles debut for Germany, Jule Niemeier was deeply disappointed.
But shortly after the game, Niemeier looked ahead again and promised improvement for today's top duel against Croatian number one Petra Martic (2 p.m. / Tennis Channel). "It doesn't feel good. But I can make it up to you tomorrow. I really want to try that. I'll leave everything I have on the pitch again," promised the 23-year-old from Dortmund.
Eva Lys also wants to show that again. It is thanks to the 20-year-old from Hamburg that the German tennis women still have every chance of remaining in the world group of the Billie Jean King Cup. Lys showed an impressive performance in the 6:1, 6:4 against Martic. There was only a little bit of tension in Lys's debut in Germany at the end. "I just tried to enjoy it and play what I can. That worked out well," said the German champion, who wants to continue the strong performance against Marcinko.
