Veteran Andrea Petkovic and young tennis hope Nastasja Schunk missed the second round of the Grand Slam tournament in Wimbledon.
The 34-year-old Petkovic lost 4: 6, 3: 6 against the Swiss Victorija Golubic and thus failed, as in 2019, right at the start. The player from Darmstadt gave up the serve four times on the lawn she didn’t love much and made too many minor mistakes throughout the game.
On her Wimbledon debut, the 18-year-old Schunk lost 4:6, 2:6 to Romanian Mihaela Buzarnescu in 76 minutes. The woman from Leimen had fought her way into the main draw for the first time with three two-set victories in the qualification. At the French Open, Schunk was also eliminated in the first round.
On the first day of the Wimbledon tournament, Angelique Kerber and Jule Niemeier advanced as German starters in the women’s competition.
