Tommy Haas 5 WC (GER) vs John Isner (USA)


The big question in this second-round match is whether towering young-gun John Isner can serve his way past the veteran Tommy Haas for the third time in his career.

In their previous two meetings, Isner served up 52 aces to Haas's 29.

The 23-year-old Isner, 6'9", turned pro in June 2007 after graduating from the University of Georgia, where he was a four-time All-American. He quickly made a huge splash as a wild-card entry in Washington, his tour debut. He posted a record five straight wins in third-set tiebreaks before losing to No. 5 Andy Roddick in the final. Isner also fired 144 aces during the week, the most in a non-Grand Slam tournament since 1991. He finished 2007 at No. 107. He is currently ranked No. 96 with his best result realized at the San Jose quarterfinals.

For the last seven years, Haas, the one-time world No. 2 (May 13, 2002), has been hampered by a shoulder injury, and it has caused him to play a very limited schedule in 2008. Wimbledon was his first Grand Slam event of the year and only ninth tournament overall. He missed the Australian Open while recovering from right shoulder surgery, and the same recurring injury kept him out of the French Open. He returned from a six-week lay-off in Halle and advanced to the second round. In March, he reached the quarterfinals at AMS Indian Wells, then didn't win back-to-back matches again until Wimbledon, where he lost in the third round to Andy Murray.

Isner will be hard to beat if his serve is firing on all cylinders, but something tells me that Haas is finding his form and won't let the young American get three straight matches on him.

Agree!   ;-()

What  Tommy said after match:
          by Tommy Haas
"The last time we played in San Jose it was frustrating. I had three match points in a row and he saved them all." - "I was happy to get my revenge after losing to him twice." - "I'm really happy about getting that match. It's always very important to have at least one victory against everyone that plays out there, so I'm really pleased with that one. I had break points on his first two service games and finally converted on my third. I used good placement when I got a look at his serve."

Still Simon is 2nd seeded,but for me Tommy is slight favorite...We'll see....Auf Geht's !!!

The competition is starting to get intense  :lifting) but Isner was the tall hurdle to get over. That augurs well for a good performance here in Washington where an in-form Safin could be the only obstacle to a spirited final against Roddick.

God damnnnnnnnnn ...I was so pissed off that I couldn't even write ! I mean,it wasn't due to Tommy's lost,it was because the way that he lost it!!
Man,he has every right to scream and break the racket,but hey! when you express that emotion that should be behind you,and should prepare for the upcoming point ! He learned a lot today ,an his attitude on the court should be much much better ! So I am happy because of that thing he will enter Toronto with full form!
I wasn't mad at him for lost just mad at him for his childish manners!can't
P.S.That not shaking with the umpire wasn't so nice of him! Hope he will overcome that,and then he will win some tour...
But as always,can't wait for his next match! So,looking forward to Toronto.Hope for a good draw !

Better for you...Well,as I said everything at the beginning was brilliant for Tommy..And then in the second set he gained a break leading 3-1,then everything went wrong  :mad1: He instantly lost his serve,but Simon took advantage late in the ninth game(4-5)
Everything went wrong when umpire took the point away from Tommy,for behaving badly(smashing racket and screaming)
Then Tommy totally lost his game,loosing easily in the 3rd...
