German National Championships

 

At the 84th edition of the German National Championships a man became singles champion of whom it is hard to believe that this was his very first big singles title in his career. Patrick BAUM, twice European Championships finalist and quarter finalist at the World Championships in 2013 grabbed the title in the city of Bielefeld, beating Steffen MENGEL in the final by 4-2.

 

“I’m so glad. I’ve never won a singles title before and to be honest, after all those years I didn’t really believe I would”. He started believing in his chance at the very end of the match, he explained. “When I was 7-5, 8-5 up in the 6th game, then I starting to think I could do it”. It was even the first national final he was in. Before the 28-year-old leftie had won bronze for four times.

 

Kristin SILBEREISEN won the singles title for the 2nd time after 2010. She beat her Bundesleague und national team mate Sabine WINTER in the final with 4-1. “I’m super happy. Sabine really gave me a hard time. I could not work less for even a second“, the 31-year-old stated. 5 games only, the result sounds easier than it was for SILBEREISEN. “Because we know each other so well and practice that often together, the match was dominated by tactics. It was not at all easy for me”.

 

Big surprise in the women’s doubles competition: Chantal MANTZ/YUAN Wan won their first title, beat the top seed SILBEREISEN/WINTER in the semis. In men’s doubles the favorites of the tournament had to fight a lot but finally won their first national doubles title together: Ruwen FILUS/Ricardo WALTHER.
