Tennis: ÖTV women line up against USA at Billie Jean King Cup

Austria’s tennis women travel to clash with record winners USA at the Billie Jean King Cup. Qualifying for the final, the red-white-red quintet is headed by Julia Graber (WTA-93.). ÖTV team captain Marian Maruska nominated Sinja Krauss (WTA-219.), Barbara Haas (WTA-468.), Tamira Paszek (WTA-528.) and Melanie Klaffner (WTA-912.) on Friday. Austria will take place on 14./15. April in Delray Beach is a clear underdog.

“It’s David against Goliath. But of course we want to beat Goliath. We’d love to do it against the United States,” said Maruska, looking back on surprise wins in 2002 in Charlotte (3-2) and 2004 in Innsbruck (4). -1) return. Overall, the US leads in head-to-head combat by a ratio of 7:2.

Maruska, who had to do without star player Graber in November’s stunning 3:2 play-off against Latvia in Svechat, was delighted that all players agreed to play. “Obviously you always want to play a strong team and I’m happy to be like that against America.”

But the hostesses will have their best actors. Jessica Pegula (3rd) and Coco Goff (6th) are two of the top six players in the WTA rankings. “Furthermore, Pegula and Goff together form an absolutely world-class duo,” emphasized Maruska. Goff is currently third in the WTA doubles rankings and Pegula is fifth. Additionally, Team USA will have two other top players in Madison Keys (WTA-20th) and Danielle Rose Collins (WTA-31st).
