The match on Friday was the first meeting between the German and the English pair. The result: The German Women’s Doubles pair lost to their English opponents after two straight games, 15-21 and 14-21. 

- We started quite well. It was a good match for one and a half sets, then we were not strong enough to come back. They were in a better shape, Johanna Goliszewski said after the match. 

- We struggled with our performance in the last tournaments. So now, we need to step up and have to improve in the next weeks, she added. 

Next and last step: Scottland

- We have to work on our fitness and on doing less mistakes, Lara Kaepplein said.
