Otte: German duel in Wimbledon will be “not that easy”

From qualifier to German number one and into the Wimbledon seeding list: Oscar Otte from Cologne has raced through the tennis world in the past twelve months.

But he doesn’t get dizzy. “I’m not going too fast. I’ve waited for years to be in this situation,” said the 28-year-old ahead of his opening match at the All England Club on Monday.

Then Otte, who in the absence of the injured Olympic champion Alexander Zverev as number 32 and the only German among the seeded players, meets his buddy Peter Gojowczyk from Munich. “It won’t be that easy,” he says.

With the semi-finals at the grass tournaments in Stuttgart and Halle/Westphalia, Otte earned respect among the world elite.

“It may be that one or the other was happy that I’m now seeded,” he said. Due to the cancellation of the Frenchman Gael Monfils, he had subsequently slipped into the circle of the seeded.
