STARNBERG, July 26, 2020

Tamara Korpatsch is the champion of the German Ladies‘ Series presented by Porsche. The World No. 111, who replaced Katharina Gerlach in the final tournament, defeated Anna Zaja 7-5, 7-6(2) in Sunday’s final on the clay courts of the Tennispark Versmold.

Korpatsch won 97 per cent of her first-service points and capitalized on six of her 11 break point chances. The 25-year-old from Hamburg won 104 of the 199 total points played.

“It was very difficult today. It was a very competitive final. I knew that Anna would play very aggressively again, that I would have to fight for every ball and not give away a point. I am very happy and satisfied with myself,” Korpatsch was pleased with her performance and earned €8,000 in prize money as well as a voucher for the Porsche Experience Center Hockenheim. Zaja took away €6,000 and a voucher for a stay at the Tannenhof Resort Sport & Spa.

Lisa Ponomar clinched the third place following a 6-4, 3-6, 6-2 victory over 16-year-old Nastasja Schunk after more than three hours of play.
