Btw good job Dustin, Australian Open spot should be secured
There were always Belgian supporters in Aachen yes, but I find it typical for German challengers that foreign players get a very friendly atmosphere against German players. Just compare a final like this to for example Gicquel vs Bohli in France couple of weeks ago, that's a huge difference.
