Yes. It was a good match indeed. What's your opinion about Haas btw? I really like him. I love his tennis and his great will. Sad to see him underachieve so much in his career because of injuries. He had so many serious injuries and after all the struggles he had in his career, he keeps coming back. What a fighter. He is almost a top 10 player now and he did that at very old age. He is a great player imo. He certainly earned full respect from every tennis fan.

Haas/Nole match was really good imo. Tommy should have won the 2nd set but wasted his chances.

Tommy will make the top 10 this year. It will be one of the best comebacks ever in tennis.

I think in the history of modern tennis there were only two players who were that good at the age of 35, Jimmy Connors and Andre Agassi. Unfortunately Haas was often injured in his younger years, as you mentioned, but he also choked away a lot of chances which was the bigger problem in my opinion. He had a big chance against Safin in the SF of the AO 2002. Safin (i like him a lot) was not in a good shape back then because he was partying all the time, but Haas couldn't take it. He wasted a big chance because Johansson was waiting in the final. And there are some more examples of Haas wasting big chances.

Even today i got the impression that Haas hasn't really matured mentally. You could think that Nole is the guy who is nine years older. I didn't get why Haas complained all the time about nothing.

But he is a very likeable player and with regard to athleticism and fitness i couldn't see a big difference today which is quite astonishing, considering Nole as the fittest guy on tour.

I think Nole was the better player until 6-6, as he was rock solid in his service games. At the beginning of the tiebreak he got a bit sloppy, and so Tommy got the 4-2 lead which he wasted with a bad volley and an UE. I would say this was a "typical Tommy at crunchtime", but i give full credit to him for still delivering a great fight in the third set.

Although Nole won in three, you could see that he doesn't like to play against Haas, because he doesn't get any rhythm from him.

By the way, Stan was unfortunately a mess today, but i expected him to have the same problems like Fed with his one-handed backhand against Nadal's forehand.

Yeah, I agree. He wasn't good mentally. I can't belive how Marat lost that AO final in 2002. Pretty sure Tommy would have won AO if he was in the final. Oh well.

Have you seen this great video before?



Such an inspirational video. He made a PERFECT BH DTL after that.

He won that match btw. 7-5 in the 5th. Mona should do the same maybe and start talking to herself in change overs. That would be pretty hilarious to watch.

I never saw that video before, but that's definitely Tommy at his best.

More hilarious than her chats with Hannelore?

No of course. Listening to Hannelore's insightful tennis analysis is always hilarious.
