Ladies of the TTC 46 Weinheim confirm the good starting position

With a smooth 6:1 result at TSV Langstadt, the ladies of the TTC 46 Weinheim continue to secure their position at the top of the table in the penultimate match of the main round of the German Table Tennis League. But the match turned out to be much tougher than expected.

fter the retirement of their top player Petrissa Solja, the Langstadt team is no longer in such a strong position and currently occupies 6th place in the table, which just about entitles them to participate in the following playoff round. The Weinheim team is still aiming for 1st or 2nd place in order to be among the front runners in the playoff round. In this respect, a clear success had already been expected.

But Bruna Takahashi had just returned from Brazil and showed signs of jetleg in the beginning. Together with Mateja Jeger, she had to admit defeat in their doubles match against Franzsika Schreiner and Chantal Mantz with 1:3.
At the other table, Yuan Wan and Giorgia Piccolin won 3:1 against Alena Lemmer and Janina Kämmerer to equalize the match.
Against Franziska Schreiner, Yuan Wan had no problems at first, when she went ahead 11:1, after that Schreiner was almost equal and only had to pay tribute to Yuan’s nerves at the end. Bruna Takahashi struggled into the match against Chantal Mantz, after losing the first set, the next ones went to her.
It was also tough in the back pair. Both Mateja Jeger and Girogia Piccolin had to go the full distance and had more difficulties with Alena Lemmer and Janina Kämmerer than expected. Thus, the 25 Weinheim fans who had come along had to worry more than they would have liked.
Bruna Takahashi then set the pleasing final point, who finally won the match against Franziska Schreiner.

This means that the team of coach Andreas Dörner is still on course and remains at the top as long as SV DJK Kolbermoor is still behind with one minus point and one match less. Decisive here the top match Kolbermoor against Berlin next Sunday.
