But this won't be a problem anymore now since he already lost his first round match against Jiri Novak 3-6 3-6
Novak's first win now in only three matches this year.
I don't know if by rules Björn is eligible still to participate in the World Team Cup, but I read that Björn could be needed and that Kühnen wanted him because Kohlschreiber injured yesterday and Haas is out anyway. And Schüttler is injured. So let's see.
