Looking through the history of the European Women’s Team Championships there is one single result that sticks out: The German victory in 2012. The German pulled off the big surprise in Amsterdam beating Denmark in the final. On February 18th they had the chance again.

In the first women’s singles Denmark was favorite Mia Blichfeldt playing against Fabienne Deprez, but it was the German who got the best opening of the first game, and the World number 52 took it 21-15.

The first surprise of the final came already in the first match of the tie. Fabienne Deprez won second game 21-15.

- I don’t know what to say. After my game yesterday, I told my team I could not play because of my knee, but I would try to do my best. This is so unreal. I am so happy, Fabienne Deprez says. 

Dominating double
Once again Germany made switches in their women’s doubles. Isabel Herttrich and Olga Konon were chosen for the first women’s doubles, but the World ranked number 3 from Denmark, Kamilla Rytter Juhl and Christinna Pedersen was too strong for the German. Denmark equalized winning 21-15 21-10.

- When we struggle a bit, we were good not losing too many points and when we felt in control, it looked hard for the girls on the other side, Christinna Pedersen says.
