Next disappointment for German tennis fans: After the first round of the Australian Open, Jane-Lennard Struff also surprisingly had to pack his bag.
Jan-Lennard Struff left Melbourne Park badly after their “mayhem” game. The 30-year-old German number two will have to make love at the Australian Open without advancing to an already mixed German record.

Even the less surprising tournament for Yannick Hanfman came against the strong Russian Ruble on Tuesday with 3: 6, 3: 6, 4: 6.
Zverev and Koefer mastered the opening match
Earlier, Angelique Kerber, Andrea Petkovic and Laura Siegmund had failed with the women, with Mona Barthel (Newmuster), who was repeatedly injured, with her 3: 6, 6, 4: 6: 4 one. The German defeat prevented success against the Italian alibetta coccierto on Tuesday. Bartel said, “I haven’t played in a long time. I have played brilliantly in the first round now.” Eurosport.
In the men’s category, Cedric-Marcel Stabe was at his opening hurdle on Monday, with Alexander Zverev (Hamburg) and Dominic Kofer (Furtwangen) beating their first opponents.
“The result is not good,” Hanfman said after his daring appearance against Rublev: “I think we had poor draws too.” It is still going on in doubles for Karlsruhr. He replaces the injured Andreas Meese and competes with French Open champion Kevin Creitz.
Zverev met Ceresi, Koefer met with a theme
The remaining German men will continue their singles on Wednesday. First, Koeffer has an early morning run with Austrian US Open winner Dominic Thiem. Then, in the second game of the night session starting at 7:00 am, Zverev is the clear favorite against American qualifier Maxim Cressy.
Struff also played this role – especially a few days before he defeated Milos Raonic (Canada) and Dusan Lajovic (Serbia) in the ATP Cup, two professionals in the top 30 and expected to make their Australian Open debut accordingly. Struff said, “I really hoped I could gain momentum from the ATP Cup”: I tried to get myself up again and again. But unfortunately today it was a disaster.
