After a so far mostly weak season sets DVV sports director Niclas Hildebrand at the home World Cup of beach volleyball players in Hamburg on a surprise effect. "Of course we had hoped for better results and overall it was surprising that we could really observe this in almost all teams," said Hildebrand on the performance of the German team. The "depth of the problems" was not to be expected despite the many new appointments with the women. Even Olympic champion and world title holder Laura Ludwig could not repeat the top level of earlier years after a 20-month baby break with her new partner Margareta Kozuch.
"I am nevertheless optimistic that we will achieve good to very good results at the World Cup now," explained the director responsible for the beach area in the German Volleyball Association before the World Cup start on Friday. "I just remember the surprising success of Karla Borger and Britta Büthe 2013 in Poland, which nobody had on top of the list, but in the end they even had a World Cup match point and were sensationally runner-up."
Borger, who now plays with Julia Sude (Stuttgart), took third place this season for the only podium finish of the German women in a higher endowed World Tour tournament. "I think since Karla is the Vice World Champion and I've been at the top of the league in recent years, we're both on a good level," said Sude. Ten German duos face the World Cup homework. In the eleven World Cup tournaments to date, Germany has won a total of six medals. Julias Brink and Jonas Reckermann (2009) as well as Laura Ludwig and Kira Walkenhorst (2017) won the title.
