What’s going on in Hamburg? All of this…!
It’s that crazy and cool time of a Major where we’re skipping from court to court and manically checking the results…yes the Pool Play is reaching its important stage and the hopes and dreams of teams are being decided!
So what’s been happening since our last update this morning? The answer: a lot!
Twelve teams in total have definitely made it through to the knockout rounds by finishing first and second in their Pools – while there’s been one surprise with the European Champions eliminated!
Among those include delight for two Dutch duos: Alexander Brouwer and Robert Meeuwsen won all three games to top their Pool and countrymen Reinder Nummerdor and Christiaan Varenhorst secured two wins to join them.
Talking of teams with 100 per cent records, Americans Nick Lucena and Phil Dalhausser have quietly gone about their business, storming to three straight victories.
And don’t rule out the Poles, Grzegorz Fijalek and Mariusz Prudel beat Nummerdor and Varenhorst in the day’s opening game and they then battered German qualifiers Lorenz Schümann and Julius Thole in the first game on Center Court!
The women have also been busy…Agatha Bednarczuk and Barbara Seixas have cruised through to the second round, winning all three games, and those girls from Vanuatu, Miller Pata and Linline Matatuatu, are also through to the knock-out stages.
Those Brazilians keep coming through – Álvaro Filho and Vitor Felipe made it through in the men’s and Juliana Felisberta and Taiana Lima stormed to three wins out of three in the women’s competition.
Annnnddddd if that wasn’t enough of a round-up for you, there was German joy for wildcards Julia Sude and Chantal Laboureur who wowed the home crowd. How many teams will Deutschland have in the knock-out rounds? Stay with us to find out later – and don’t forget to check out our live streams!
