National Player Nico Schlotterbeck Makes Surprise Appearance at French Open

Hey, what does he want here?

Surprising visit to Paris! National player Nico Schlotterbeck (24) appears at the French Open.

There he and several friends watched the match between Jule Niemeier (24) and the Chinese Xinyu Wang (22).

Was that a coincidence? Niemeier comes from Dortmund, is an avowed BVB fan, stands in the south stand as often as she can and receives messages and congratulations from Mats Hummels (35) & Co. before and after matches.

But this time the BVB fan block in the stands of seat 5 did not bring her any luck. Niemeier lost 6:0, 2:6, 4:6, wasting two break points in the third set to make it 4:0. A defeat that she herself does not yet know how it came about. Nevertheless, she is now back in the top 100 and will probably not have to qualify for Wimbledon.

Immediately after the disappointment ended, the Schlotterbeck clan made their way past Court Philippe Chatrier to Court 8. There, a real thriller raged. Daniel Altmaier (25) defeated the Serbian Laslo Djere (28) in a tennis battle lasting 5 hours and 4 minutes: 7:5, 6:4, 6:7 (6:8), 5:7, 7:6 (10:6). Schlotterbeck served there in the middle of the fourth set; it is not known whether he stayed until the end.

How is it that a national player, who will play with his club in the Champions League final in London against Real Madrid next Saturday, turns up in Paris? Coach Edin Terzic (41) apparently gave his boys a few days off before the big trip to Wembley.

And Schlotterbeck enjoyed this free time in the city of love. In this case, that meant his love of tennis.

Bitter: In addition to Niemeier, Tatjana Maria, Eva Lys and Laura Siegemund were also eliminated on the first day. Only Maximilian Marterer from Nuremberg made it through alongside Altmaier. On Monday, Alexander Zverev will be on the court in a super duel against Rafael Nadal, Henri Squire, Yannick Hanfmann and Dominik Koepfer.
