Björn is really winning all the must-win matches this year. I think he has now 3 QF's and 1 SF in 2006 and he will stay in the top 100 easily once again.
But somehow he has no big reputation in Germany. I mean it's a fact that he's #3 in Germany at the moment, but he was never candidate for Wildcards and Daviscup, maybe because other players are more talented.
Alex Waske is also not a big talent and still got 7 wildcards in a row in German ATP tournaments.
