The USTA is sorry for allowing that Nazi Germany anthem to be peformed

The United States Tennis Association is sorry that an outdated version of the German national anthem that later became associated with the Nazi regime was performed before a Fed Cup match in Hawaii. The anthem, sung Saturday before a Fed Cup quarterfinal between the United States and Germany, contains a verse that translates to "Germany, Germany, above all, above all in the world," which became identified with Adolf Hitler's Third Reich.

The USTA took to Twitter:

A mistake with a live singer and sheet music.

The anthem is banned in Germany.
