German Jule Niemeier wins WTA Makarska Open 2022

German Jule Niemeier is the winner of the WTA Makarska Open by Valamar tournament. In the final match she beat Italian Elisabetta Cocciaretto 7-5, 6-1.

The German won the first set 7:5. She started the match better, but then she started throwing a lot of clean balls outside and Cocciaretto came back, it was 5:5… However, in the very end of the set Niemeier hit a couple of important balls again and won the first part of the match with 7:5.

In the second set, it was a one-way street. Niemeier was better for the class, her balls heavier, faster… Cocciaretto could not find any answer to the attacks of the German tennis player who deservedly won this first Makarska WTA Open by Valamar tournament.

Tomislav Družak, Special Envoy of the Prime Minister and Makarska Mayor Zoran Paunović awarded the trophies to the tennis players.

"Thank you all for supporting the players. It was nice to see passionate fans in the stands. Thanks also to everyone who supported the tournament, "said tournament director Feliks Lukas.

"I congratulate Jule on the big week and wish her all the best in her career. This is one of the best tournaments I have played in. I feel at home here because I am on the other side of the Adriatic, "said Italian Elisabetta Cocciaretto.

"I'm sorry I stopped Elisabetta down. I enjoyed being here, one of the most beautiful tournaments I’ve been to. I also had a great time at the party for the players, "said the winner Jule Niemeier.

This has been a really nice tennis week. A good overture to begin with, for the first edition in Makarska. Everyone is announcing that next year will be better, more, stronger. Maybe it's best to end with a favorite statement from director Feliks Lukas - the best is yet to come!
