Hamburg A Highlight Of Summer Clay Circuit



The bet-at-home Open - German Tennis Championships welcomes 32 top singles players and 16 doubles teams to the summer clay-court event as one of the 11 ATP World Tour 500 stops. The tournament is held in the heart of Hamburg at the Rothenbaum Tennis Center, which features a retractable roof stadium seating 13,200 spectators – making it the largest centre court in Germany.



WHO IS PLAYING
Gilles Simon, Nicolas Almagro, Gael Monfils, Juan Monaco, Fernando Verdasco, Marin Cilic, Philipp Kohlschreiber, Florian Mayer

Simon Bids To Retain Title
Gilles Simon returns in a bid to retain his Hamburg title. In 2011, he battled past Nicolas Almagro 6-4, 4-6, 6-4 in the final to become the first Frenchman to win the title at the ATP World Tour 500 clay-court tennis tournament since Henri Leconte 25 years ago (d. Mecir).

Former Finalist Returns - World No. 10 Nicolas Almagro competes in Hamburg for the seventh time, having finished runner-up last year. He beat Florian Mayer and Fernando Verdasco en route to the final.

Monaco To Be Feared - World No. 14 Juan Monaco has reached the third round on each of his past three Hamburg appearances. The Argentine has won two ATP World Tour clay-court titles this year.

Cilic’s Clay Bid - World No. 15 Marin Cilic, who lost to Mikhail Youzhny in last year’s quarter-finals, has a 7-7 record in ATP World Tour finals, but has never won a clay title.

Just watched some of the highlights of the Haas-Simon match...Haas has such a beautiful game, awesome to see him playing well again.
Good luck on the court is nice to have, but it's usually extraneous when playing against Baker.

Mad skillz Haas has.
No telling what he might have accomplished if not plagued with injuries.
Or, perhaps the injuries have given him a new perspective which is allowing him to play great tennis now. :uhm:
Either way, I like his style and variety of shot and am glad to see him back on court and gaining confidence. :)
CONK da ball!!!
