Doris Fischer was born in Vienna in 1959. She studied German and History and has been working as a high school teacher since 1983.

During her childhood she loved all kinds of card games and she often watched her parents playing rubber bridge.

But her leisure time was captured by her handball activities.

Soon after she had become a member of the Austrian ladies team a knee operation stopped her ambition in 1985.

When she - some months later - accepted the invitation of one of her colleges at school to play a club tournament with him, she would never have imagined that from that day on bridge should play a central role in her life.

In 1987 Doris formed a partnership with Terry Weigkricht.

The two of them played for Austria in the Olympiad in 1988; their first big successes came in 1991 and 1992 when they became European Champions in Ireland, Vice World Champions in Japan and Olympic Champions in Italy.

World Grand Master in his list are also mixed in Biarritz in 2000, Patton in Biarritz in 2004, the MEC Team gold in 1996, bronze in the Transnational Mixed Teams in 2000.

Apart from her bridge activities Doris loves reading, music and going to the theatre.
