Krawietz and Puetz wreak revenge on the Germans

Tim Puetz and Kevin Krawietz

Germany made up for the defeat against Great Britain (2-0) in 2019 also in the quarterfinals of the Davis Cup Finals on Tuesday and came back (2-1) in Innsbruck (Austria) to return to the semifinals 14 years later.

Without Zverev, the Germans have advanced so much thanks, mainly, to their doubles partner, which is Kevin Krawietz and Tim Puetz, two renowned specialists who do not play together on the ATP circuit, but who have understood each other wonderfully to win in the two series of the group stage and in the first round of the crossovers.

The decisive point was stolen from two other experts, Joe Salisbury and Neil Skupksi (7-6 (10) and 7-6 (5)). The second set tiebreaker was particularly spectacular on the Teutonic side. Because the British started them with a 5-0 run and then they conceded a 7-0 that made them deliver the game. Before Daniel Evans swept Pater Gojowzcyk (6-2 and 6-1) and Jan-Lennard Struff equalized before Cameron Norrie (7-6 (6), 3-6 and 6-2) for Germany, who He breaks the tie in the face to face (6-5) and awaits a rival for his next commitment, already at the Madrid Arena on Friday: Russia or Sweden.
