He's clean shaven. Without his ginger beard he's not getting any further in this event. :tape:

Argh. It seemed Brands had chances here, maybe he was ashamed with his GS debut.

This is the end of some era in German tennis. This year at Roland Garros for the first time since Roland Garros 2001, Germany was without a seeded player in a Grand Slam event. *8 players in the draw and all have lost in the 1st round (in 3 or 4 sets, none of them wasn't close to be in the 2nd round).

Schuettler, Kiefer and Haas are in the early 30's quite close to retirements, there are no successors.

agree completely any win on clay is a bonus.
