Talkative Berrer wins Farewell-doubles

Talkative Berrer wins Farewell-doubles

Stuttgart,

Berrer wins farewell doubles „mic’d up“ at the TC Weissenhof – together with Mischa Zverev and a whole lot of fun and puns.

The MercedesCup certainly hasn’t seen a doubles like this before: On the first Sunday of the tournament, Michael Berrer played his farewell game – equipped with a microphone. Just like his partner Mischa Zverev and their opponents Philipp Kohlschreiber and Florian Mayer. Naturally, Berrer would commentate on each and every point which was played. One time, he prompted his partner to “hit him”, which Zverev politely declined and instead decided to play the elegant passing ball past Mayer’s body at the net.

The exhibition was a long set up to 9 games, with a deciding tie-break if the game were tied at 8-8. Which, obviously, was exactly what happened. Berrer/Zverev got the re-break when Mayer was serving for the match at 8-8. The emotional hero of the afternoon then held his nerves in check and won the tie-break to take the match 9-8.

After the match, Berrer was honored by tournament director Edwin Weinhofer for his long years of loyalty to the tournament. Berrer not only got a very special Magnum bottle of wine, but also a life-long accreditation for the MercedesCup at Stuttgart’s Weissenhof. Ronnie Mjörnell, the tournament’s mastermind from the Eighties, awarded Berrer with a unique hand-knitted sweater with the Mercedes logo emblazoned on the left chest.
