Home team vacations – with one exception

Ladies

Group A

LINZ AG Team Upper Austria – Raiffeisenbank TC Bludenz 4:3. With Austria's Melanie Klaffner surrendering in the first singles match to Swiss Fiona Ganz and Barbara Haas losing by two goals to Czech Denisa Pospisilova, things have become very close for the four-time defending champion in the duel between the two championship-winning teams. First match day. But in positions from third to fifth, the Czech Petra Krejsova scored confidently in the tie-break of the match, as did Bettina Stommer and Janina Toljan, before Krejsova/Stomer secured the decision for the hosts against the women of Vorarlberg in the doubles match.

TC Sparkass Kufstein – BMTC-Brühl Mödlinger TC 4:3. Despite 9:8 in groups and 72:48 in matches, the visiting team from Lower Austria, which included only Austrians, managed to win just one point in the second round. The smooth victories of Alexandra Zimmer and Claudia Gasparovic in singles and together in doubles were no longer enough, because all three matches with tiebreaks went to the home team from Tyrol – through German Sabrina Rittberger in singles and in decisive singles doubles with Tara Erler and through Michaela Niedermayer in singles . A not entirely unfortunate and successful start for the Kufsteiners who were unable to play on the first day of the match.

Group B

KLC-TC Kitzbühel 6:1. The 2022 finalists didn't do much against the newcomers from Tyrol, despite one or two close sets. The bottom line is that only Poland's Gina Magdalena Vestel managed to score in the doubles singles for TC Kitzbühel, which still has to wait for its first win of the season. For the Klagenfurt Athletics Club, Slovenian Delilah Jakupovic (in top doubles with Romanian Alexandra Cadantu-Ignatic), Nina Plihal and Emilie Mayer (in doubles together) contributed two points – for the second win in the second round.

Grazer Park Club – UTC Fisher Red 4:3. Last year's semi-finalists were able to redeem themselves for their narrow opening defeat to KLC – thanks to a coup against last year's finalists from Upper Austria, who, however, had their top three players Senja Krause (preparing for the French Championship qualifiers Open in Paris), Silvia Ambrosio (Italy) and Lina Papadakis (Germany). Although Arabella Kohler, Nadja Ramskogler and Germany's Karina Hofbauer scored for Ried in positions two to four in the tie-break of the match, the Graz women had the last laugh after trailing 2:3 after the singles matches. It is clear that Croatian Eva Primorac and 14-year-old Tyrolean Anna Bircher won the singles doubles, and Russian Polina Likina and former national champion Yvonne Neuwirth also won the doubles with a very narrow margin ahead of Koller and Christina Wolfgruber with a score of 6:7 and 6. :3 and 10:8 in the tie-break of the match.

Group A

TC Harland – TSV Hartberg Tennis 5:4. The second victory in the second match for last year's finalists – although after the first men's doubles match the score was still 1: 2 and the guests from Styria could dream of an upset. For Lower Austria, the narrow 4:6, -6:1, -11:9 win of Germany's Louis Wessels over Ukraine's Vladislav Orlov became a trump card, as did the clear successes of Tobias Verlinde, Jonas Gundaker and Markus Sedlitsky. Positions from fourth to sixth.

TC Raiffeisen Schwaz – UTC Strasbourg 8:1. Here too, the winners of the first day of the match achieved another sense of achievement, bringing them closer to the semi-finals. The basis for this was the three narrow victories in two sets in doubles for the Tyroleans. With a 3-0 lead, the home team, led by Giovanni Oradeni (Italy) and Aziz Kijametovic (Bosnia and Herzegovina), eventually lost only in the rounds. There, 21-year-old Tobias Smolener won the point of honor for Carinthian at the start of the season with a 6-0, 6-1 win over former Tyrolean professional Philipp Schroll.

Union Stein & Co. Mauthausen – TC Raiffeisen Dornbirn 8:1. A confident opening success for Upper Austria, who were considered favorites by most Bundesliga clubs, and who arrived with Slovenian Blaz Rula as their only legionnaire. After winning 3-0 after the double matches, the way was set for an early win. But Rula, former national champions Andreas Haider-Maurer and Lenny Hampel, as well as youngsters Matthias Ugvari and Joel Schwarzler on their debut for Mauthausen, showed no weakness at individual level. The rookie team from Vorarlberg took the singles in just six, as Czech Marek Rihacek beat Dominik Aigner in two tiebreaks.

TCGM-Sports Anif – STC Raptor Salzburg 3:6. The only away win this time in the second round of the win2day Bundesliga came in the Salzburg derby, when the winners met on the first day of the match. A narrow defeat in the match tie-break to Gerald Melzer and ÖTV Sports Director and Davis Cup captain Jürgen Melzer in the doubles meant that the home team entered the singles matches with a 1:2 lead. In addition to the Melzer brothers, who met again in Anif this year, they also relied on Third former Davis Cup player: 53-year-old Gerald Mandel, operator of the TC GM-Sport Anif facility.
