After the premature entry into the final tournament, the German Davis Cup team wants to say goodbye to the home audience in Hamburg with the group victory. This requires a win against the Australians, who are also unbeaten after two games, on Sunday.

After the premature entry into the final tournament, the German Davis Cup team wants to win the group from the home crowd in Hamburg say goodbye. This requires a win against the Australians, who are also unbeaten after two games, on Sunday.

"I wasn't aware at the beginning of the week that the draw had already taken place. If you win the group, you have a better draw than second," said captain Michael Kohlmann. The 48-year-old left it open with which squad the German tennis men will compete. Possibly Oscar Otte, who recently recovered from knee surgery, will be given a break.

The big pressure is gone after reaching the final 8 in Malaga at the end of November. "We can do that Sunday Enjoy now and then want to play well in Malaga," said doubles specialist Tim Pütz. The 34-year-old is still unbeaten in the Davis Cup alongside Kevin Krawietz and scored the decisive point in Hamburg in the wins against France and Belgium. " There is no secret recipe. It's not like we smoke the voodoo pipe together and that's why we win all the time," said Pütz.
