With Timo BOLL everything goes easier for Borussia Dusseldorf! The six times individual European champion played his third game after more than three months break due to knee surgery, as German champion beat Fulda-Maberzell 3:0 in the Bundesliga last night. It was good prelude for the 2016 German Cup Final Four which will be held on January 9th at Ratiopharm-Arena in Ulm. Borussia is going to play against TTC Schwalbe Bergneustadt in the semi final (11:00) and the winner will fight for the title against the better club from the second semis, between Saarbrucken and Fulda.
Borussia`s Manager Andreas PREUSS stated for the club website that they had „a good team effort“ against Fulda, but stressed role of Timo BOLL who beat WANG Xi 3:2 (11:8, 11:5, 8:11, 12:14, 13:11) in the opening game:
„Particularly I want to single out the performance of Timo BOLL who managed to return from 0:5 in the decisive set. For him it was just third game after a long break due to knee injury“.
Patrick FRANZISKA easily beat Jonathan GROTH, while Indian Kamal ACHANTA overcame Ruwen FILUS after full five games.
Borussia won German Cup six times in the last eight editions and 23 (national record). They lifted the trophy last three years in a row.
