MEET TOMMY HAAS
Tommy Haas has spanned generations. He holds three wins against three of the dominant players of the last 25 years – Pete Sampas, Roger Federer and now Novak Djokovic. He arrived on the scene with ridiculously big shoes to fill – those of Boris Becker in Germany. And over the past 20 years he has won over just about everyone in tennis with his creative, single-handed, all-court game, his guts on-court (he’s played 42 five-set matches, winning half of them), and with his resilience off the court. He has endured eight operations over the course of his career. His parents suffered an horrific motorcycle crash in 2002 and were lucky to survive. But he is still going, still coming back, including from his latest surgery to his foot in the Spring. He has reached Grand Slam semi-finals, the No.2 ranking in the world, and claimed the Masters 1000 title in Stuttgart. Every point counts in Tie Break Tens, and he will fight for every one.
TIE BREAK STRENGTHS
Tommy Haas turned pro before Roger Federer, and is the only one of Federer’s contemporary who still hasn’t yet retired. He’s been there, done it, and health permitting, can still do it.
No matter who Haas has faced over the course of his career, he has backed himself to win. He won’t shirk a tie-break against anyone.
Haas has a gorgeous single-handed backhand, and an imaginative overall game. He can conjure winners seemingly out of nowhere.
