Görges announces return to Fed Cup team
Julia Görges wants to run for the German Fed Cup team in the semi-final against the Czech Republic. In the first round against Belarus she had paused.
The tennis world-ranked Julia Görges will give the German Fed-Cup-Team for the semi-final against Czech Republic on 21. and 22. April will be available again.
“I’m definitely there,”said the 29-year-old to the portal tennisnet. com on the fringes of the WTA tournament in Doha. Görges and top ten player Angelique Kerber had a break in the first round of the Fed Cup.
“I think anyone who knows me well knows that I like to play in the Fed Cup for my country. That is always something special,”says Görges. Last weekend, the selection of the German Tennis Association (DTB) had beaten last year’s finalist Belarus surprisingly 3:2 in Minsk.
The new team captain Jens Gerlach will be able to fall back on Kerber against the ten-time title holder. That’s what Barbara Rittner, Head of Women’s Tennis at the DTB, said on Monday:”I’m very sure. Angie and Julia only cancelled their participation in the first game,”said Rittner.
Görges is on the second round of the 3.173 million dollar tournament in Qatar after a 6:1.7:5 defeat of the Czech Lucie Safarova as well as Carina Witthöft.
The 22-year-old Hamburg-based Tatjana Maria, a 6-3,6-0 winner in the German duel with Fed Cup player Tatjana Maria, was surprisingly clear.
