The offensive first stanza has been banned in Germany since the end of the Second World War, but it was precisely those bars that were played during the opening ceremony of the quarter final match on Saturday between the Alison Riske of the USA and Germany's Andrea Petkovic.

Before Germany's Andrea Petkovic and Alison Riske of the USA took the court in Hawaii, a singer inadvertently performed a long-banned Nazi-era version of the country's national anthem.

The singing of the verse brought a stern response from Petkovic and an official statement of apology from the United States Tennis Association.
Petkovic and her teammates were angered on Saturday when an American soloist sang an old version of the German anthem that begins with a stanza considered overtly nationalist - "Deutschland, Deutschland ueber alles" - a reference to German supremacy.

"Honestly, it's been a really tough week for us", said Petkovic, who took to Twitter on Sunday to elaborate on her feelings about the anthem mix-up. "But news got around to us and it's extremely unfortunate".
