Davis Cup - Holding the World Group with a World Team!!!

This was something very special to me. Challenge, honour, reward and fun - all in one.

Thanks to the team that made me feel at home right from the beginning! Thanks to everybody behind the scenes who helped! Thanks to the crowd in Berlin who supported me greatly at my debut, although it didn't work out with a win in the end.

I hope that this was not my last Davis Cup for Germany -  I will do everything for it.

Daniel

Off to Berlin!

Joining the German Davis-Cup Team in their relegation tie against Poland at Rot-Weiß Berlin from 16 to 18 September! Team Captain Michael Kohlmann invited me. Nominated are Philipp Kohlschreiber, Florian Mayer, Jan-Lennard Struff and Daniel Brands.

It's a great honour for me and I'm really looking forward to it.

Daniel

Hi Friends!

Unfortunately, I still have to pause and cancel the ITF Future Sparkassen Trophy in Cornaiano, Italy, this week...

Daniel

Hi Friends!

ITF Future in Bolzano, Italy - unfortunately, had to withdraw in the Quarters, second set and one set down; didn't feel well, mad stomach, felt week the previous round already. It just didn't make any sense anymore. Very bad and real pity. However, at least a Quarter...

Will be back soon, hopefully!

Daniel

Hi Friends!

Future in Kassel - after tough start on to Quarters, lost to my Doubles partner, Yannick Hanfmann. He won the tournament - Congrats, Yannick! First round in Doubles with him, unfortunately.

Now it's practise and then on to Italy...

Daniel

Hi Friends!

ATP 500 German Open in Hamburg, Quali Final playing Monteiro, #1 seed and some 200 ranks higher... Tough three sets, two Tie Breakers, lost the first, won the second, and defended two match points in the Third. But in the end I lost it. Also, in Doubles with Steebe in the Quali Final after having beaten the #1 seeded team, but that was it...

Probably I could have done a bit better, but an ATP 500 is a big bite to chew right from the Quali on...

Daniel

Hi Friends!

Challenger in Braunschweig. Got a Wild Card for the Main Draw - thanks guys for the support. Lost a tight match to Kamke 4 and 4; just did not play good enough...

Off to Hamburg on Friday, Saturday it's Quali there!

Daniel

Hi Friends!

Breda Future in the Netherlands - reached Final, however, after many suspensions due to rain and three set matches before it was not enough for beating Joris de Loore, the top-seeded player, ranging some 100 places higher. 

Now practise and on to the Challenger in Braunschweig...

Daniel

Hi Friends!

After a 9:0 against Cologne at home a 5:4 in Leverkusen (this after it was 4:2 for Leverkusen after the Singles, won all three Doubles, turned it around). Finally, played Halle II at home again and moved up to 2nd Bundesliga with Team Versmold!!!

Now on to a Future in the Netherlands and back to Challengers...

Daniel

Hi Friends!

Challenger in Fürth with main draw Wildcard and loosing to Montanes right away. Fought well and nearly had the first set. But loosing to an experienced Top100 man is no disgrace, I think...

Daniel

Hi Friends!

Lost 2nd round in Mestre after hours of waiting for the rain to stop... too bad.

But then great performance with Team Versmold - 8:1 against Bergheim.

Now practise in Munich and then on to the Challenger in Fürth!

Daniel

Hi Friends!

Great start into the season with Team Versmold, and now on to the Challenger in Mestre...

Daniel

Hi Friends!

First Challenger in Nanjing, China: Quali OK, first round main draw out, unfortunately...

Second one in An-Ning, China, in the main draw right away, however, lost my first round match with Tiebreak in the Third (5)... Quarters in Doubles with Yannick Hanfmann, that's OK.

Now, Regional League with Versmold!

Daniel

Hi Friends!

Played two Futures in Madrid and got on well. Now off to China for two Challengers...

Daniel

Hi Friends!

After the long insury on the court again at the Future in Nancy. However, lost first round to Blancaneaux of France, three sets, Tiebreak in the Third 5:7. Too bad, no match practise, but the hand was OK.

Off to Madrid!

Daniel

Hi Friends!

During my match in Nußloch I fell and hurt my left hand - it got swollen on my way back to Munich and I couldn't play my backhand really. So much for the tournaments ever since. I have to let this get alright and pause, unfortunately.

But I'll be back - promised!

Daniel

Hi Friends!

Man, knocked out at Nußloch already - lost Tie-Break in the Third... unbelievable and very annoying!

Daniel

Hi Friends!

Hurt my shoulder during warm-up at the Future in Kaarst - and had to retire first round against Moraing at 2:6 0:3... Not so great but it'll be fine soon, I hope.

Daniel

Hi Friends!

Schwieberdingen - first tournament 2016, first tournament win! Three Tie-Breaks against Andy Beck. Great revanche for the Final of the German Championships 2014. Good feeling after the insury pause at the end of last year, too. I'm really happy!

On to the next one - the Future in Kaarst.

Daniel
