Aggressive: Jan-Lennard Struff looks back on a “mad week”.
First he fails in the qualification, then he plays his way to the final – and demands everything from Carlos Alcaraz despite bankruptcy. Now Jan-Lennard Struff could even replace Alexander Zverev.
Dhe tennis tournament in Madrid has seen some craziness. The blue colored sand courts, for example, on which the former tournament boss Ion Tiriac once played. Or the mostly female and temporarily also male models who take on the job of ball children on Center Court in airy clothes and distract players and spectators from the competition.
In addition to such oddities, which cause more astonishment than enthusiasm, there are sporting attractions in the Spanish capital every year. The latest is Jan-Lennard Struff, who achieved something sensational: As the first player to fail in qualification, the German Davis Cup professional reached the final of a tournament in the Masters series.
