Danke general hercules!  :))

Definitely a wonderful week for me, and patient Tommy fans.
Also a dream final for me, surely it was epic vs Djokovic back in '09 but this one vs Fed should be joy to watch.

Can't really compare Tommy's game atm with the ones when he was at his best, but it wouldn't be so far from it.

He's looking very patient, and yet playing so smart on crucial points, which wasn't the case in past few years.
He knew when to attack Kohli, and delivered it perfectly.

Kudos to Kohli tho, for amazing fight, who was a bit unlucky at times.
After all, tiny details have concluded the winner here...

Glad to see Roger in the finals.  And congrats to Haas too.  He's having a great tournament.  Roger leads 10-2 against Haas, but the last 2 times they played were very tight matches.  I just hope Roger can stop Haas to win it.  (Sorry Lug)!

who is defining anything?
 
all i am saying is that a 1 shot or 2 shot rally is not tennis.
 
in fact it is damn near nothing. who the hell would watch that?
 
and certainly nobody aspires to be that damned incompetent in the sport as a player.

Grass tennis is a blast, I love playing it.
Good Luck on the Court!!!

slightly slower grass is needed scott.
 
people want to see some tennis played on it. that is why they slowed down the biggest grass court event on the planet.
 
nobody gives a damn about 1-2 shot rallies and 35 aces. where is the tennis when you have that dynamic?
 
dr ivo and roddick had 57 aces between them the other day and they both lost that day.

Federer didn't play well, his footwork was very lazy. Hass played extremely well. First title for Hass this year.

Never count anything before it happens. I didn't. Remember - anything can happen. The future isn't cut in stone. Now apologize to Tommy's fans!

Haas Triumphs Over Federer In Halle Final



Former World No. 2 Tommy Haas won the Gerry Weber Open title for the second time on Sunday in Halle as he defeated good friend and five-time former champion Roger Federer 7-6(5), 6-4.

The German had lifted the trophy in 2009 with victory over Novak Djokovic and ended a nine-match losing streak against Federer to win his 13th ATP World Tour title. He has won eight ATP World Tour finals in a row, with his last defeat in a title match coming against Andre Agassi in Rome in 2002.

The 34-year-old Haas started the season ranked outside the Top 200 after undergoing hip surgery that kept him out for 14 months between late February 2010 and May 2011. He had returned to the Top 100 at No. 87 with the help of a semi-final showing in Munich (l. to Cilic) and a third-round effort at Roland Garros (l. to Gasquet), and is now projected to leap to around No. 51 after earning 250 South African Airways ATP Rankings points.

Coming into the final, Haas had not beaten Federer since the 2002 Australian Open fourth round. Haas recovered from 1-3 down in the first set, levelling in the sixth game before prevailing in the subsequent tie-break. He then broke Federer in the ninth game of the second set after chasing down a drop shot to hit a backhand winner and served out the match in one hour and 35 minutes.

The 30-year-old Federer was bidding to win his sixth title in Halle. Having won the title between 2003-2006 and 2008, he finished runner-up to Lleyton Hewitt in the 2010 title match and has a 39-5 event record.

Federer opened his grass-court campaign fresh from reaching the semi-finals at Roland Garros (l. to Djokovic). He was looking to win his fifth ATP World Tour title of the season, following victories at Rotterdam, Dubai, Indian Wells and Madrid.
