German tennis players knock out the British 1 EPA-EFE / PHILIPP GUELLAND

With the result 2: 1, the “Panzers” placed among the four best national teams of this year’s Davis Cup.

It will be the first semifinal of the Germans since 2007, deserved by the victory of the selector’s players of Michael Coleman against Great Britain at the tournament in Innsbruck.

The key point was scored by the double Kevin Kravic / Tim Puc, who beat John Salisbury and Neil Skupski after two sets and two tie-breaks – 7: 6 (10), 7: 6 (5). A great fight was seen, especially in the first set, in which the defeated team had as many as four balls for 1: 0, but that part of the match went to the Germans.

The second tie-break was also unusual, in which the British led 5: 0, but the rival found a way to rise and tie seven points.

Earlier today, Evans defeated Gojovcik, and Struff Noria, so they can start preparations for a duel with Russia or Sweden.
