Two home victories – big match against Karlsruhe

Eschborn -It was hard work. And in the end, the Tennis 65 Eschborn players were rewarded for their great fighting spirit. Yesterday, they defeated the Post Südstadt Karlsruhe team at home 5: 4 and improved to fourth place in the Southwest Regional League. The day before, the Eschborn women had already defeated bottom-placed TC Ludwigshafen 8: 1. “Winning the two matches was our goal,” said coach Archibald Pflug.

Following the defeat the week before, an important step was taken on the road to being promoted to the third highest German league. Eschborn plays on TV Reutlingen next Saturday. The next day is the last home game against the leaders TC Boehringer Ingelheim (11.00 every day). The following week, the short season ends with games at TA VfL Sindelfingen II (May 28) and TC Ludwigshafen-Oppau (May 29).

Eschborn had few problems against Ludwigshafen. Yesterday’s match against Karlsruhe was much more competitive. “It was really tight. There were six match tiebreaks alone,” Pflug emphasizes. Eschborn’s top player Sarah Gronert was originally 2: 4 behind Mallaurie Noel from France, then changed her game and won over world number 409. smooth with 6: 4, 6: 2. Fabienne Gettwart already led 9: 6 against Czech Aneta Laboutkova in the tiebreak of the match. Then her 22-year-old opponent, number 517 in the world rankings, had a match point of 9:10. But Gettwart countered again and won the match tiebreak 12:10. In third place, Silvia Ambrosio was about to lose to Marisa Schmidt after losing the first set, but still won 4: 6, 7: 5, 10: 4. Eschborn’s only foreigner on the team, Livia Kraus, had no problems. “Livia told me before the match, take lots of popcorn and drinks with you. The game can hold,” Pflug said. Because her opponent Ellen Linsenbolz like Kraus is a defensive specialist. But then the Austrian Kraus won 6: 2, 6: 0 and is still the only undefeated Eschborn in the single. Carolin Nonnenmacher and Jessica Raith also showed mental strength in fifth and sixth place. Both also won their matches in match tiebreak. It was already 5: 1 after the individual matches, which meant that the victory against Karlsruhe was certain. In the three doubles, the Eschborn women tried out new lineups. Again, there were two match tiebreaks, which Karlsruhe won this time – which did not change the overall victory for the Eschborn women. With two wins from the first three games of the season, last year’s second place is in goal. However, more victories are needed to stay in the league. “Karlsruhe will definitely still score points,” Pflug said.
