Davis Cup, quarter-finals: Germany vs. Canada NOW in the live ticker – before the start
Before start: Difficult year for Struff! Jan-Lennard Struff has repeatedly struggled with injury problems this year. The 32-year-old broke his toe and was not in good shape for a long time. “I didn’t have a good year,” said the Warsteiner in Malaga, looking back. In the Davis Cup, Struff still delivered and won all three singles in the group games in September. Most recently, he was also able to gain self-confidence by reaching the final at the Challenger tournament in Bergamo. In addition, Struffi has good memories of his opponent today. The German won five of eight games against Denis Shapovalov.
Before start: Strong group stage! In fact, the German team has shown in the recent past that it can also annoy the big ones. Last year Serbia and Great Britain were defeated, this time the DTB selection prevailed in the group phase, also without Sascha Zverev, with three wins against Australia, France and Belgium. Canada made it a lot more exciting and came in second behind Spain and ahead of the tied Serbs.
Before start: Start delayed! Since the game between the USA and Italy is still ongoing, the start of the German game will be delayed a little. The decisive double between Jack Sock and Tommy Paul as well as Fabio Fognini and Simone Bolelli is currently running in Malaga. The Italians won the first set.
Before start: Germany in the outsider role! On paper, the German team is the clear underdog. While the DTB top star Alexander Zverev is still injured, the Canadians are sending two top 20 players into the race with Denis Shapovalov and Felix Auger-Aliassime. Michael Kohlmann’s team with Tim Pütz and Kevin Krawietz, who are still unbeaten in the Davis Cup, would certainly have a good chance in a possible decisive doubles match, but that has to happen first. “Of course we’re not the favorites as far as the ranking is concerned. But we’ve proven several times in recent years that we can also beat higher-ranked teams,” said Kohlmann in advance.
Before start: The Davis Cup is entering the decisive phase. In the quarter-finals of the tournament, the German team, still without Olympic champion Alexander Zverev, will face Canada, consisting of Felix Auger-Aliassime, Denis Shapovalov, Vasek Pospisil, Alexis Galarneau and Gabriel Diallo. Oscar Otte, Jan-Lennard Struff, Yannick Hanfmann, Tim Pütz and Kevin Krawietz will represent Germany.
Before start: The first individual match starts at 4 p.m. in Malaga, Spain.
