The day before the Hamburg return of the title favorite Alexander Zverev teenager Rudi Molleker has provided for the first surprise on Rothenbaum.

On the other hand, Philipp Kohlschreiber and Daniel Altmaier were eliminated on the first day of the tournament. The 35-year-old Kohlschreiber therefore had to answer the inevitable question of resignation several times. "Tennis has not given me much pleasure in recent weeks, but I'm not one who gives up," said the Augsburg, but he also admitted: "If you lose, it's no fun. If you lose too often, pukes it's on. "
Kohlschreiber lost 3-3, 0-6 in just 65 minutes against Hungary's Marton Fucsovics. At 35 years and nine months he was the oldest professional in the field - and assured that his 15th participation should not have been the last. "It's just such a stinking situation," said Kohlschreiber and ordered his bankruptcy in drizzle against the world's number 50 as a "swatter". For the fourth time in succession he conceded a first-round defeat, but this time Kohlschreiber seemed depressed and disillusioned.
"The last few weeks have not been easy, of course, self-confidence plays a big role," he said, hoping for the Kitzbühel tournament next week, which he has won twice before, and the subsequent change of surface to hard court. "Maybe that's exactly what I need now," said Kohlschreiber.
