Jens Woehrmann (born 8 September 1967) is a former professional tennis player from Germany.[1]


Woehrmann had a win over world number nine Jakob Hlasek en route to a semi-final exit at the Stuttgart Outdoor tournament in 1989.[2] He finished the season well, making the quarter-finals in Frankfurt and in the Stockholm Open.[2]

Now ranked in the top 100, Woehrmann gained direct entry into the 1990 Australian Open, his first Grand Slam appearance.[2] He defeated Soviet player Andres Vysand in the opening round, then lost in four sets to Lars-Anders Wahlgren.[2] At the 1990 Wimbledon Championships he also made the second round, where he was beaten by Milan Šrejber.[2] He had defeated American Brian Garrow in the first round.[2] In the 1990 BMW Open he had two big wins, over Yannick Noah (for the second time in his career) and countryman Carl-Uwe Steeb.[2] He lost to Petr Korda in the quarter-finals.[2] Also that year, Woehrmann represented West Germany in a Davis Cup tie against Argentina in Buenos Aires. The German played the first rubber, against Alberto Mancini, which he lost.[3]
