BUTTERFLY FAVORITES: Anton Kallberg's 10 Best Bundesliga Points

Dusseldorf Tops Ochsenhausen in TTBL Action

(by Steve Hopkins)

You could argue that the two squads are moving in opposite directions.  Borussia Dusseldorf sits alone atop the standings (now 12-1) while Ochsenhausen has dropped from first to sixth (by dropping 6 of 7 of their most recent matches).  Both teams were not at full strength today – Dusseldorf was missing Timo Boll and Ochsenhausen played without Kanak Jha.

Even without Boll, Dusseldorf will be favored in every match this season – that is a part of having such a deep and talented squad.  Dusseldorf played today with Dang Qiu, Kristian Karlson, and Anton Kallberg.  Ochsenhausen had Simon Gauzy, Samuel Kulczycki, and Can Akkuzu.

The opening match was a 3-0 win for Dang Qiu (11-9, 11-3, 11-6).  The second match was close between Kristian Karlson and Simon Gauzy, with Karlson winning the first two games at 12-10 and then splitting the final two games to secure a 3-1 win.  The final win went to Dusseldorf when Anton Kallberg topped Sam Kulczycki 3-1.

Dusseldorf is 12-1 in the standings, and two full wins ahead of second place Saarbrucken.  Ochsenhausen has now dropped to sixth (two games off the pace needed to finish in the Top 4 – where only the top four teams play for the title at the end of the season).  The second half of the season has just started – so lots of German League action is still on the horizon.
