Hi sid,
I don't know mate,this year exhibition looks pretty much strong and maybe even stronger than last year,along with Roger and Stan coming in..
Anyway it is unlikely that Tommy will be in,he was 14 back then in 2007 after all  :Confused:

Tommy speaks:

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

Hi there, fans!


I still can't believe it: when I look out my window, I'm really put into a christmas mood. In the briefest of time, the houses have been covered by a giant white mantle. Las Vegas is completely dipped in snow! It's a crazy picture, the like of which the city hasn't seen in over thirty years. Indeed, there's children here who've never seen snow before and are now enjoying it immensely.


Of course, the same goes for Sara and myself. There's a good chance we'll be celebrating a truly white christmas this year. And we don't even have to fly to Munich for that. Incredible.

But it isn't just Las Vegas which has been given a new look overnight: there have also been some changes to my website. As you may have already noticed, my webteam has introduced a few new features you'll hopefully enjoy. The bi-lingual forum invites you to join a lively debate, the community area allows you to get in touch with other fans - and I'll be glad about any messages and greetings left in the guestbook. Go ahead and give everything a try. I already like the new elements a lot. But we're not done yet! You'll soon be marvelling at some other new features on this homepage.

But first Sara and I are going to take some time off over christmas. Have yourself a great holiday season, enjoy being with your loved ones and celebrate the new year!

We'll meet again in 2009!

Yours truly,

Tommy



In other news Tommy said  he has never trained so hard before in his career.
So excited to see him back on the court,and it is very likely that he'll play Australian Open !

Seems like all of the players have taken the off-time seriously to train and get in the best shape possible!

I guess it is unlikely for Tommy to get the protected ranking so this WC would be good  :good:

Haas, Monfils get Doha wildcards

DOHA: Tommy Haas of Germany and Gael Monfils of France have been handed wildcards by the Qatar Tennis Federation ((QTF) for the season-opening tournament to be played in Doha early next month.

The Qatar ExxonMobil Open will be held at Khalifa Tennis Complex from January 5 to 11. Haas and Monfils join top guns Rafael Nadal of Spain and Roger Federer of Switzerland at the $1m event.

This was announced by Nasser Al Khulaifi, President of QTF, at a press briefing yesterday. Karim Alami, the tournament director, was also present.

Andy Roddick of the US and Andy Murray of Britain are also part of the 32-player main draw. The third wildcard has been given to Qatar’s Abdulla Al Haji by the organisers.

Thirty-year-old Haas, who has been struggling to bounce back to into the top ten, having achieved a career-high ranking of world number two in 2002, is currently ranked 82.

The high point of his campaign last season has been the semi-final at Washington and the quarter-finals of the ATP Masters Series Indian Wells in Indianpolis.

The German finished out of top 50 for just the second time in past 12 seasons following a comeback from shoulder surgery in November 2007.

He opened the season in February before reaching the quarter-finals at ATP Masters Series Indian Wells in Indianapolis.

Hass, who rates his achievement of winning the silver medal in singles in 2000 Sydney Olympics as his best, posted wins over Roddick in the second round in Indianapolis and then defeated Murray in the fourth round before withdrawing, prior to his quarter-final match against Federer with a sinus infection.

World number 14, Frenchman Monfils, finished in the top 20 for the first time and won a personal-high of 30 matches, while reaching his first Grand Slam semi-final at Roland Garros, where he lost to Federer.

He won his only title of the season in Marrakech and also lost in the Vienna event.

In the Olympics singles event he lost in the quarter-finals in Beijing and in the ATP Masters Series in Madrid, he failed to clear the last sixteen hurdle, while also reaching the semi-final at Nottingham and Bangkok events.

The ATP International Series event, will be contested by a field of 32 players in the singles event and 16 teams will vie for the top honours in the doubles.

Tommy Haas celebrates his comeback in Melbourne  :thumbs-up:

Tommy Haas played his last official match end of August. For the first time in 8 years the German tennis pro did not make it to the third round of his favourite tournament, the US Open. His out was as early as the second round playing against the qualifying Gilles Muller from Luxembourg. The native of Hamburg underlay an inflammation at the right elbow.

After an injury lay-off of four month the point of return is now drawing close. Tommy Haas is going to fly to Melbourne as early as the 9th January to play at the first Grand Slam tournament of the year, the Australian Open, one week later. Initially his participation at the Quatar ExxonMobil Open in Doha was planned in order to gain match experience. But Haas had to refuse the wildcard given out by the organisers, as his injury was still getting to him. The German will most likely still have to revert to painkillers at the Australian Open as his inflamed elbow has not completely healed yet. Nevertheless, Tommy Haas presents himself battlesome these days and wants to make his "little dream” of taking part at the first of the 4 big tournaments in Australia come true at all costs.

The Australian Open are taking place in Melbourne, Australia, from 19th January until 1st of February. At his last appearance in 2007 the past world ranking second even reached the half finals. Last year Haas had to cancel the tournament due to long-lasting problems with his shoulder.

Schwank is the first hurdle

The first-round draw has paired Tommy Haas with the 22-year-old Eduardo Schwank, which appears to be a solvable task, as this opponent is considered a clay-court specialist. Schwank, coached by Javier Nalbandian, is currently placed number 54 in the world, which means he has moved up more than one hundred places in the ranking over the course of last year. This was mainly due to his results on clay.

Schwank made his Grand Slam debut at the 2008 French Open and, after qualifying for the main draw, surprisingly defeated Carlos Moya in the first round. Schwank, a right-hander who is quick on his feet, will now also make his debut at the Australian Open - facing Haas for the first time his career.

Tommy's quarter :

(1) Nadal vs C Rochus
Serra vs Karanusic
Schwank vs Haas
Q vs (29) Tursunov
(24) Gasquet vs Junqueira
Spadea vs Istomin
Canas vs Kiefer
Hewitt vs (13) Gonzalez

Crap draw for Tommy. Not sure he can stay in there with Rafa. I understand Kiefer has withdrawn.
