He has to hold his serves against Karlovic. Good Luck! Another good chance after the seeded players lost today.

Mebius, you're definately right that he is flying A LOT under the radar, especially considering that he is currently the 3rd best ranked German player. It is hard to say whether it has to do something with his asian looks or even prejudices towards him. He should be a candidate for a team nomination, Mayer and Schüttler currently play bad and are completely off the track and Kohlschreiber yet has to show any consistency too. Why Waske will be quite a firm figure in the team is easy to explain: doubles skill to team up with Tommy as first choice partner (and function as a good soul and motivator who pushes the team).

No, there are also no prejudices towards Behrend - he got WC's

In my opinion its because germans are always afraid of changes. They dont seem to realize that sometimes you have to change sth. in order to improve. Rainer Schüttler is the best example : he is too dump to see he needs a new coach.
In team competitions there were not a Phau or a Greul yet, because even if they qualify because of their rankings they would not be chosen, because Kühnen is conservative and puts his faith in the "old powers".

I think it a shame. Bjorn is an aggressive player, also he has storng mental.
So I think he is a good player for Daviscup and German.
Why he has no big reputation is no talent some people say, but is that all? Just in my opinion,is there some kind of prejudice toward him? I mean I'm just worried about prejudice to mixed asian race.I mean sometimes mixed race especially asian get involved trouble.I hope he doesn't recieve about that from local tennis association.
Sorry serious opinion.

Anyway we hope he'll play well and to be the top of Germany!!

Guess, what i think? coz he is mixed, he isn't tall like normal German, and he isn't strong enough, so that;s why he isn't picked for DC.

Default Re: Björn Phau

in singles Haas and Kiefer
in doubles Haas and Waske
and Mayer and Schüttler reserve

there is no space at the moment for Björn in Davis Cup
Kühnen doesnt want to try out different teams, its always the same
it seriously has nothing to do with him being "mixed race"
there is no Kohlschreiber, Greul also!

Ivo Karlovic (CRO) d. Björn Phau (GER) 46 63 76(8)

Björn was so brave and adorable out there, but unlucky in the decisive moments
everytime he had a chance to win this match Karlovic served an ace Björn had a MP in the tie-break, but Karlovic served an ace also

Not sure if this is right. Actually the coach of the German football team does make a lot of changes and the people rip him into pieces for that and always find something to critisize, such as for trying new training methods, ditching old assistent coaches, swapping Kahn and Lehmann in the goal for #1, making a new headquarter where the team stays during the tournament... that's actually a lot of changes.

Like you say, Kühnen will much more likely go for the established ones, even if they currently suck, instead of trying some new players who are more succesful, but running the risk they could have a bad day and then being critisized for that: "hey, why did you let such a guy play his first Davis Cup mach in this a decisive moment?!" or whatever questions. I'm sure he thinks back with horror as he let Mayer make his debut against Slovakia in the final rubber and some people even suggested Waske would have been the better choice
