Info This draw was tailormade for the German players who performed at Wimbledon in the previous week, although Ulrich Pinner was not given a direct entry into the quarter-finals. However, the good intentions of the officials were thwarted by Fassbender/Pohmann who made it into the the doubles semifinals where they lost in 5 sets to Vitas Gerulaitis and Sandy Mayer. Karl Meiler, the most succesfull german tennis player of the seventies, finally won the national singles title after many bitter disappointments in the previous championships. Astonishingly, it proved to be his only national title on clay. He lost two other singles finals in 1979 (to Gehring) and 1984 (to Maurer) and never won the doubles title even though he was a very successful doubles player who took 18 Grand Prix level titles including the World Doubles Championship in 1976.
