At Bredeni Tennis Club, members favor their Bundesliga player Tatjana Maria.
“We are incredibly proud of him and his performance at the club,” said Esther Rekash WDR Broadcast RuhrJo looks after Maria and her quarter-final rival Wimbledon Jule Niemeyer in the Tennis Bundesliga at the Essen club.
It was surprising that two of the club’s players made it to the final eight players’ round in a Grand Slam tournament, but more than that they were “very happy and excited for both”.
After Maria entered the semi-finals, several congratulatory messages were sent to the Bundesliga leader’s WhatsApp group, Rekash confirmed. “Tazana answered them too and I think she sent back 25 hearts.”
