German tennis player Kevin Krawietz and his doubles partner Tim Pütz easily cleared their first hurdle in Wimbledon on Friday afternoon. The Germans won 7:5 and 6:3 against the Serbian-Mexican team Nikola Cacic and Miguel Angel Reyes Varela after exactly 90 minutes of play.
In the second round, Krawietz/Pütz were to meet the Norwegian-American doubles team of Casper Ruud/William Blumberg, but they had to forgo their start due to shoulder problems in the case of the Norwegian Ruud. The German tennis doubles team thus entered the last 16 without a fight.
Krawietz was also successful in the mixed competition. After only a little more than an hour's break, he competed in the mixed doubles in the afternoon. Together with Yang Zhaoxuan from China, the Witzmannsberger also mastered this opening hurdle. The German-Chinese duo won after 63 minutes with 6:3, 6:4 against Emil Ruusuvuori (Finland) and Anett Kontaveit (Estonia).
