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.
