TTBL: Ochsenhausen 3-0 in Second Half, Dussledorf and Neu-Ulm Fall

(by Steve Hopkins)

Ochsenhausen has started the second half of the German professional league on fire logging three wins already – and jumping up to second position.  The other elite teams have had some hic-ups already.  Saarbrucken fell on Sunday to Muhlhausen (Habesohn won both of his matches and Steffan Mengel added the third win).  Last week, Neu-Ulm fell twice – once to Muhlhausen and once to Ochsenhausen – though the mid-year tournament champion Neu-Ulm squad is primarily inconsistent because their top players have lots of commitments (so stars Ovtcharov, Moregard, and Yun-Ju did not play).    Dusseldorf stumbled last Sunday – falling to Bad Koenigshofen (with Boll and Stumper losing singles matches – and Sharath Kamal Achanta and Boll winning singles matches – but with Achanta/Qiu losing the deciding doubles match for the 2-3 loss).

Ochsenhausen is playing without Kanak Jha – but Robles, Kulczycki, Akkuzu, and Gauzy are all playing well at the same time.  Right now, Ochsenhausen and Saarbrucken are 2 matches behind Dusseldorf – but both are one ahead of Muhlhausen and two wins ahead of 5th place.  The goal is to stay in the Top 4 – and Dusseldorf, Ochsenhausen, and Saarbrucken seem to be in great position already.  Neu Ulm – who was a top 4 squad in the first half has fallen to 7-7…  quickly digging a hole that could make qualifying difficult.

There are 8 more weeks of matches – so lots of action is still ahead.
