Re: Barbara Haas

Very nice performance overall

The 1st set was a disaster, she made a LOT of BH unforced errors and was just trying to play the ball in the court. In the 2nd she played more freely and was more aggressive on the court, which is the way she should play more often She fought really hard and had the right attitude from the beginning of the 2nd set. It's a great scoreline for someone with still very limited experience at this level.

Hope she plays bigger events to improve her tennis against these higher ranked players, but for sure this will boost her confidence for the rest of this season and 2016

Re: Barbara Haas


She is so lovely and cute. Nice to see that she did not give up and fought hard
Babsi must work on being more aggressive and she must improve her serve
This Wild Card was fully deserved. Babsi only lost 4-6 in 3rd set vs Top 40 player
I`m sure Babsi learned much in this match. A good experience for her

It was wonderful to see Sybille Bammer again
Babsi is in good hands with her and Jürgen Waber as her coaches

I never watched Haas play before.
That was quite a match against Strycova!
What a fighter!
Will be watching her in the future.

Re: Barbara Haas

Babsi just lost, 0-6 7-6(5) 4-6

Big fight again from *1-5 to get to 4-5* She really made Barbie work hard for her win till the very last point!

First time I'm watching her play really properly, I had read several times some posters on here saying that she was the biggest moonballer ever and had a disgusting weaponless game but that's just wrong, and I am pleasantly surprised with what I've seen. She was very aggressive-minded in this match, going for most of her shots and she actually was the one who was dictating in most of the points today. I don't know, maybe she completely changed her gamestyle and her strategy because this was a WTA match and she had nothing to lose, otherwise that's just weird...

Anyways, hopefully she is very proud of herself because that was really a gutsy display from her!

Babsi just won the 2nd set against Barbie, 0-6 7-6(5)

Big heart and big fight from 3-5* down in the 2nd (and 3-5* down in the TB as well), she played bold and fully deserves to get this set!

Re: Barbara Haas

Babsi receives a main draw Wild Card for WTA Linz !

Die 19-Jährige hat im September mit ihrem Finalsieg bei dem mit 25.000-US-Dollar dotierten ITF-Damenturnier in Podgorica (6:3, 6:1 über die Serbin Doroteja Eric im Finale) einen tollen Schlusspunkt unter die Sandplatz-Saison gesetzt. „Mit diesem Super-Erfolg hat ‚Babsi’ viel Selbstvertrauen getankt für Linz“, meinte Jürgen Waber, Fed-Cup-Kapitän und Trainer von Österreichs Top-Talent. Mit der „kontinuierlichen Entwicklung“ seines Schützlings ist Waber sehr zufrieden. „‚Babsi hat heuer schon beim WTA-Turnier in Bad Gastein sehr gut gespielt, es geht Monat für Monat in allen Bereichen aufwärts.“
Her coach (also Fed Cup captain) Jürgen Waber says: "Babsi gained much self-confidence for Linz with the 25k title at Podgorica." He is happy with Babsi`s development/improvement.

Verbesserungspotenzial sieht Waber vor allem „in der Spieleröffnung und Aggressivität“. Beide Bereiche seien in der Jugend nicht gefördert worden, konstatierte der Trainer, der von den jüngsten US Open in New York einen positiven Aspekt mitgenommen hat. „Roberta Vinci und Simona Halep haben den Beweis geliefert, dass auch kleinere Spielerinnen die Chance haben, sich gegen die Power-Ladies durchzusetzen – dank ihrer Schnelligkeit. Man muss nicht unbedingt groß und kräftig gebaut sein.“ Auch Haas ist bekanntlich ein eher zierlicher Typ, die Schnelligkeit zählt zu ihren Stärken.
Waber says the biggest room for improvement is how to start the point and the aggressiveness. Both these areas were not worked/trained enough in Babsi`s youth.

Und wo sieht Waber Haas in nächster Zukunft? „Unser Ziel ist, dass ‚Babsi’ in ein bis zwei Jahren das Niveau erreicht hat, um bei Grand-Slam-Turnieren dabei zu sein. Zumindest in der Qualifikation.“ Auch Turnierbotschafterin Barbara Schett ist von der Entwicklung der jungen ÖTV-Spielerin „sehr angetan“. „Ich freue mich riesig über die Wildcard, ich sehe es als Belohnung für meine Leistungen. Ich habe nichts zu verlieren, werde mein Bestes geben, und vielleicht kann ich die eine oder andere Überraschung liefern“, meinte Haas.
Waber says: "Our goal is that Babsi reaches in 1 or 2 years the level to participate in Grand Slams. A least in qualification." Babsi is very happy that she received the Wild Card. She says she has nothing to lose and will give her best.
