Zvereva, Hrdlickova, Rittner, Farina ... => German tennis league to begin soon !

For those interested in tennis in Germany around the summer, the local board "Sprechen wir deuce" presents the facts about the famous German tennis league taking place around Paris and Wimbledon.

It´s a team event taking place each year around the clay court weeks where singles and doubles matches are played and where each match the teams can decide wether or not an ousted top-player at a WTA official event could be called to improve the team. It´s so famous among the players because it offers great chances to get your form tested under match-conditions without the fear of losing ranking-points and the training facilities and the hotels in German cities should be good. For those who exit early either in Paris or Wimbledon.

Interestingly enough, among those who will play, are Zvereva who is living in Berlin right now, same as Peschke-Hrdlickova who did in fact not retire but is reported to have had a serious injury last year. If this means she won´t return to the tour is unknown. But it´s an info I didn´t find anywhere else on this board. Same as the fact that German talent Scarlett Werner who disappeared from the tour lately having had the talent to be a top200 player at least will finish school these days which is a sign she might try it full-time on the tour later this year. Kandarr takes a break in her studies to return to the league.

Among others, Germany´s former top100 players of Muller, Lamade, Glass and Arn return from retirement or challenger form to this format, Muller and Lamade might return "in style" to try it once again for the big tour.

If you read the names of those who declared themselves available for team matches, it´s quite interesting:

Sanchez Lorenzo, Pratt, Schwartz, Leon Garcia, Torrens-Valero, Rittner, Barna, Cervanova, Weingärtner, Callens, Garbin, Roesch, Peschke-Hrdlickova, Zvereva (!), Rittner, Werner, Kleinova, Farina Elia (!), Schruff, Muller, Likhovtseva (!), Schaul, Svensson (!), Flipkens, Klösel, Sucha, Kandarr ...

There´ll be 6 playing days, 6 week-ends that is, which isn´t too much and which could be interesting for those going out in the tournament weeks early.

Hopefully, some of you got some new infos :-)

This sounds so cool and fun. Do they have a website and info
where we can follow the games? How about pics? It would be
highly appreciated if those who are lucky to attend the matches
give us nice reports etc..

Wow! Natasha Zvereva!!!! Playing on clay!

There´s a link in the German section of WTAWORLD.com but it´s a German one. There might be pics on each of the team´s page whatsoever but I haven´t checked.

"Religion has actually convinced people that there is an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. Any if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!

But he loves you."

Is it possible that Natasha plays doubles at the German Open in Berlin?
