Julia Görges (31) kann wegen einer Knöchelverletzung nicht beim zweiten Teil des Einladungsturniers in Berlin teilnehmen. Das bestätigte Tennis-Bundestrainerin Barbara Rittner dem SID am Mittwoch. Görges (Bad Oldesloe) war am Montag in ihrem Rasen-Match im Steffi-Graf-Stadion gegen die Lettin Anastasija Sevastova umgeknickt und gab beim Stand von 3:6, 3:4 auf. Eine längere Pause ist wohl nicht zu erwarten, "aber es ist schmerzhaft", sagte Rittner. Für Görges rückt Alexandra Vecic (Immendingen) ins Turnier, das ab Freitag auf einem Hartplatz im Hangar 6 des ehemaligen Flughafens Tempelhhof fortgesetzt wird. Vecic (18) hatte vor der Coronapause mit dem Halbfinaleinzug im Juniorenturnier der Australian Open auf sich aufmerksam gemacht.
