It only seems five minutes ago that we wrote this piece after the early morning matches were complete and now, 68 games later, we’re basking in the glory of a successful second day on the sand here in Hamburg!

What have you missed? Well a brief look through our website or Twitter feed tells its own story. We’ve got birthdays wrong, witnessed German women celebrating and spoke to Austrians about pressure and toilets…We got to any lengths to get a story you know!

But what else, we hear you ask!

Well today has been pretty much a girl thing with all women’s team playing two matches and apart from the Germans the other nation to really kick ass was Brazil. And then some…

Four of the five women’s teams in the draw blitzed their way to two wins from two matches on Wednesday to really strengthen their hand on a place in the knockout stages. Talk about bringing the Copacabana to Hamburg.

The guys were doing their thing too – as four of the five Brazilian men’s teams also did the biz – with Alison Cerutti and Bruno Schmidt and Pedro Solberg and Evandro Gonçalves serving up some huge points in their opening matches.

Finally, the Dutch men also had a decent day…both Brouwer/Meeuwsen and Nummerdor/Varenhorst breezed to victories to set-up a mouthwatering day’s play inside the Center Court for the first time on Thursday!

Can’t wait to find out what’s in store tomorrow? Check out the schedule now!
