Andrea Petkovic had nothing to win on Wednesday (MEZ). The 31-year-old from Darmstadt lost against the American Amanda Anisimova 4:6, 3:6. The match had been postponed the day before due to rain. Petkovic had already failed in Indian Wells in the first round, but Venus Williams was the one to blame. The best result this year was achieved by Petkovic in Brisbane, where she reached the quarter-finals.

ATP: Mischa Zverev continues – Gojowyczk out
Mischa Zverev is the first German professional to enter the second round at the tennis tournament in Miami. On Wednesday, the 31-year-old Hamburg player benefited from his opponent’s abandonment against Spain’s Nicola Kuhn at 4:6, 7:5, 2:2. The older brother of the world ranking third Alexander Zverev now meets the Georgian Nikolos Bassilashvili.
Peter Gojowczyk, on the other hand, has been eliminated. The 29-year-old from Munich had to admit defeat to the Argentinian Federico Delbonis with 4:6, 2:6.

At the Masters in Indian Wells ten days ago he had failed in the second round with 1:6, 5:7 against the later finalist Roger Federer (Switzerland).
