Thanks to Eintracht star Götze: Niemeier says goodbye to Wimbledon emotionally

She is only 22 years old and has already arrived on the tennis world stage. Jule Niemeier played the tournament of her life at Wimbledon and made it to the quarter-finals. There it was over against the second German Tatjana Maria. “I gave my all today, but it just wasn’t enough,” said Niemeier, a little behind the game. And thanks a football world champion in an Instagram post: Mario Götze.

Jule Niemeier manages to see the positive after the match despite the huge disappointment: “I lost the last round of qualifying after having two match points in 2021. Who would have thought that a year later I would be playing my very first GS quarterfinals.”

The thanks go not only to their team, but also to a world champion. “Mario Götze made the day even more special, thanks for the video,” writes the tennis player on Instagram after the match. The New Frankfurter had sent her a video in which he wished her good luck for her duel. Jule Niemeier is an ardent Borussia Dortmund fan.

Jule Niemeier proudly says goodbye to the All England Club. She can also console herself with £310,000 in prize money, doubling her previous earnings. She does not get points for the world rankings, which were withdrawn from the tournament after the exclusion of Russian and Belarusian players.

For the main draw at the US Open, number 97 in the ranking therefore needs good results in the coming weeks. Her surprising run at Wimbledon should give Niemeier the confidence to do so. “Jule showed that this is just the beginning,” said national coach Barbara Rittner: “There’s so much more to it. We’ll be very happy with her.”
