Unfortunately the last match of the encounter between Germany and Croatia wasn't shown on German tv and therefore I don't know what happened in Bennis match against Cilic.
He mentioned after his match against Ljubicic that he was nervous because of his first match in DC and the whole situation.
I think it is always hard to concentrate for a match when the encounter of DC has already been decided and maybe Benni was just a bit lost in thoughts in his last match.
Yes, I agree. It is so difficult to keep calm first time in DC.
This is just biginning in DC for him.
And Benni in the 6th seed at next tournament.
He has the match on Wednesday,maybe.
Good Luck,Benni !!
