STARNBERG, November 28, 2017
This year’s winners of the €10,000 German Masters Series Race by Tannenhof are 20-year-old Katharina Hobgarski of the Porsche Talent Team and 21-year-old Jan Choinski.
The nationwide unique tournament series serves up-and-coming talents as a leap into the world class and comprises 49 tournaments – including the ATP Challenger event in Braunschweig, 15 ITF Futures in women’s and men’s and 18 national prize money tournaments in Germany.
“We are pleased that thanks to the support of the sports hotel Tannenhof, we can now also award a prize money to the winners of the German Masters Series Race for the first time,” says Klaus Eberhard, sports director of the German Tennis Federation (DTB).
Choinski Finalist In Kassel
Choinski, who takes away €5,000 in prize money, finished runner-up to Jurgen Zopp at the Wilhelmshöhe Open in Kassel this year. The Koblenz native captured four ITF Pro Circuit titles this season, lifting the trophies in Karlskrona, Essen, Wetzlar and Karlsruhe. He reached a new career high at World No. 288 last month.
“We are very happy about it the development of Jan Choinski, who made a good impression at our tournament, in which at least half of the top 10 of the German Masters Series Race competed,” tournament director Dr. Eberhard Engelmann stated.
The next edition of the $25,000 Wilhelmshöhe Open, which will remain Germany’s biggest ITF Pro Circuit event, is going to take place from 15 to 22 July 2018.
