Tennis: Kevin Krawietz - A review of the year 2021

Coburg, 12-16-2021

Brose-supported tennis pro Kevin Krawietz can look back on successful tournaments in 2021. The highlights that will probably remain in the Witzmannsberger's memory are his participation in the Olympics or his sensational semi-final appearance in the Davis Cup.

In February, Kevin reached the semi-finals of the ATP Cup in Melbourne with the German team.

At the Barcelona Open in April, Krawietz and his interim partner Horia Tecau, who played for the long-term injured Andres Mies, managed second place. The BMW Open victory with Wesley Koolhof, just a few days later, showed that the defeat in the final was quickly overcome.

In June, Krawietz celebrated his next tournament victory. He won the ATP 500 tournament in Halle alongside Tecau.

At Wimbledon, he reached the semifinals of the mixed competition with Czech Kveta Peschke. There the doubles team lost to the British Harriet Dart and Joe Salisbury.

Before Kevin went to Tokyo for the Olympic Games as part of Team Germany, he and Horia Tecau finished second in the Hamburg European Open. Despite being eliminated early in doubles and mixed, the Olympics were a true highlight for the Witzmannsberger. "That's quite impressive when you meet all the other athletes from different sports in one place. That's what makes it so special. For me it has been the best event in the world despite the circumstances because of the Corona pandemic," he explained.

Kevin Krawietz should also reach the ATP Finals this year. The 29-year-old took part in the competition, where the best tennis players in the world compete, for the third time in a row.

The final event of the year is the Davis Cup in November. Thanks to the terrific performance of Krawietz and Pütz, who won all of their doubles matches, Germany advanced to the semifinals for the first time since 2007. Only here they had to admit defeat to the later winners from Russia.

Starting next season, Kevin will again play together with his successful partner Andreas Mies. Together, the two athletes won the doubles competition at the French Open in 2019 and 2020.
