Rijeka – Jules Niemeyer will have to adjust in short order against another opponent in the Billie Jean King Cup playoffs.



Instead of playing Croatian number one Petra Martic, Germany’s top seed plays Ana Konjuh today (2:00 p.m. / Tennis Channel). The hosts announced this two hours before the match in Rijeka.

On Friday, Niemeyer’s opponent had already changed in a short time. Instead of the injured Donna Vekic, the 23-year-old player from Dortmund had to play with the only 16-year-old Petra Marchinko and lost clearly 3:6, 2:6.



With Eva Liss surprisingly winning in straight sets against Martic in the past, the score is 1-1 after day one. Lis faces Marcinko in her second singles match for Germany on Saturday. If it was 2:2 at that time, the decision to stay in the world group would be made in the final doubles match.
