tennis pro Oscar Otte missed the chance for an early victory for the German Davis Cup team in the opening game of the group stage against France.

After teammate Jan-Lennard Struff made it 1-0, the 29-year-old lost 4-6 and 3-6 to Adrian Mannarino in Hamburg. This is the decision in the final doubles. There, Kevin Krawietz and Tim Pütz want their first win against France against Nicolas Mahut and Arthur Rinderknech Davis Cup making perfect since 1938.

In the duel between the world number 52. Otte and the French number 47 in the world in the Rothenbaum tennis stadium, Mannarino was more ripped off. The left-hander sometimes acted faster and showed the weaknesses of the man from Cologne, who was last eliminated in the first round of the US Open.

previously had struff brought the German Davis Cup team into the lead in front of the injured Alexander Zverev. Born in Warsteiner, he defeated Frenchman Benjamin Bonzi 6:4, 2:6, 7:5 after defending against two match points.
