Third Carinthian Junior Cup 2023 powered by Fresacher: Pinter, Tagger and Zimmer still in the running – ÖTV

The Austrian youth are currently in a very strong international competition in the third Carinthian Junior Cup 2023 with the support of Friesacher in Wolfsburg. And so it happened that after the first main round of the ITF-J100 carpet tournament in TC Neudau, which was organized by the already proven tournament management duo Gernot Dreier and Julia Adlbrecht with their own team, there were only three domestic arenas left in singles. ÖTV contract player Pete Louis Painter reached the round of 16 in Carinthia with the boys as well as Lili Tager and Alexandra Zimmer with the girls.

Pinter and Tagger showed good nerve in their first round hits. The 17-year-old Burgenlander (ITF 363) defeated Slovenian qualifier Miha Pajzelj (ITF 1465) 6:1, 6:7(3), 7:5 and is now challenging fifth seed, Croatian Duje. Markovina (ITF 268). On the other hand, the 15-year-old East Tyrolean (ITF 695) defeated Brooklyn Olson (ITF 433) of USA 6:3, 4:6, 7:6(2) and now faces third seed Slovak Lucia. Hradika (ITF 323) of the same age. However, Zimmer was very confident at the start: he finished seventh-placed Lower Austrian (ITF 362) Croatian Leticia Tarocco (ITF 453) 6:1, 6:1 and played against Hungarian Melinda Biro (ITF 600), who had a record of 1 -0 against her for a place in the quarter-finals.

Viennese Janis Graske barely missed a big upset: the player of the ÖTV contract (ITF 444) lost to French top seed Julien Leroux (ITF 130) only in a third-set tiebreaker – 3:6, 7:5, 6:7 (0) is what he said In the end, from his point of view. ÖTV contract player Leonie Rabel also missed out on an even bigger coup: the 15-year-old from Burgenland (ITF 801) lost to Czech eighth seed Viktor Zedlova (ITF 369) 6:3, 4:6, 1:6. Otherwise, only Nico Heeppel, who lost after leading the set, managed to win the set. Felix Fischer, Max Koehler, Nikola Kolarić, Stella Horacek, Teresa Stábor, Jonah Heismeyer and Emma Leitner were eliminated in straight sets.
