Wimbledon: Nicola Kuhn, Maximilian Marterer and Nastasja Schunk make it into the main draw with victories in the qualifying final

It will be a first for Kuhn. The native of Innsbruck, who used to play under the Spanish flag, is in the 128 field for the first time in his career at one of the four largest tennis tournaments in the world. In the qualifying final he defeated the Australian Rinky Hijikata 6:4, 3:6, 7:5, 7:6 (7:4).

Marterer (Nuremberg) is back at Wimbledon for the first time in four years, beating Nicolas Moreno de Alboran (USA) in three sets. Daniel Masur (Bückeburg) was also in the final, but missed the leap into the main draw in five sets.

Oscar Otte (Cologne), Daniel Altmaier (Kempen), Dominik Koepfer (Furtwangen) and Peter Gojowczyk (Munich) qualified for the third Grand Slam tournament of the season via the world rankings. World number two Alexander Zverev (Hamburg) is injured, Jan-Lennard Struff (Warstein) is there after his hand injury caused by the protected ranking.
